[quote]Apparently Chase Hyatt will have sign up bonus of 40k Hyatt points instead of the 2 free nights. Starting 6/29! Guess I'll have to jump on this soon before it changes.[/quote] As a technical matter, it's functionally a reduction from 60k points to 40k, which isn't massive. Obviously st...

re: Boiling Shrimp - Joshjrn
[quote]You and Google, and your instruction labels, and Emeril, and the rest of mississippi, should leave the shrimp boiling to the coonasses.[/quote] In my experience, coonasses apparently hate the taste of shrimp, because they will do whatever they can to make their boiled shrimp taste as littl...

re: Most expensive dinner for 2 you've had - Joshjrn
I've had a few come close, but I believe the most expensive was just a touch north of $650 at Gabriel Kreuther. Absolutely exceptional dinner. The restaurant must be inconsistent, otherwise I can't fathom how it hasn't earned another star. ...

[quote]Is the csr still a good value, I missed out on the 100k points last year. I currently only have an amazon card.[/quote] Yes, but only if you will comfortably use your $300 travel credit every year. Tack on $20 per year value for Global Entry, and now you're down to $130 in annual fee. Betw...

re: Went to Brq yesterday (review) - Joshjrn
Split the pulled pork, sliced brisket, half chicken, potato salad, and corn bread with a friend. Everything was very good, with the brisket being my favorite. Not cheap, but I don't think utterly out of line with the value received. Also, I overheard that they were on a two hour wait by about 5:1...

re: Went to Brq yesterday (review) - Joshjrn
While I'm generally a bit of a hop head, IPAs aren't my beer of choice with BBQ. Being those are the primary drivers of the draft/fresh push, the lack of taps isn't the end of the world. Had a Ballast Point Victory at Sea out of the bottle which paired extremely well. As long as you have some solid ...

re: Went to Brq yesterday (review) - Joshjrn
I'm going to join in on the counter side to the prices being high. One of the cheapest lunches I have is a three item meal (two papusas and a tamale) at La Salvadorena. That's $2.50 a piece, and I drink water. Add tax, and we're just over $8. And I brag on them to everyone about being one of the bes...
