re: Sea Side,FL Suggestions - Wade Phillips
Gumbo bowl and pina colada at Shrimp Shack as soon as I arrive, usually. Overpriced, but a ritual. When we would go in grad school several weeks each year, we always had much more fun at night in the Grayton area. Redbar for dinner then walk to Pandoras bar. Where we would run into local waitress...

re: Any opinions on Chase Sapphire Reserve vs Barclay Arrival Plus? - Wade Phillips
I've been using the Barclay Arrival for a couple years now. Was recently wondering if I am getting the most bang for the buck. I like the flexibility of booking my own travel and reimbursing myself, but wish I had lounge access and other perks, especially at $89/year. Missed the boat on CSR, but if ...

re: Visit to Ft Worth, TX. Artsy fartsy and some drinking. - Wade Phillips
Being a FW resident, I found this amusing. If I had caught the earlier thread, I would have given you a few different recommendations. It seems you hit a couple good spots, but also some passable venues. Hope you enjoyed your trip and come back. ...

re: Favorite Professor/Instructor During Your Time at LSU? - Wade Phillips
No love for P. Breaux (Business Law)? Dude was unhinged and loved to put a leg up on the desk of the girls in the front row and thrust hip into their face. Genuinely nice guy as well and wrote me a rec for grad school applications without being a prick about it (e.g. only had to meet with him once)....

re: Consolidating and refinancing student loan debt - Wade Phillips
If it's at 4-6% and you plan to pay off quickly, I think I would skip the hassle of refinancing. With mortgage rates up right now, you'll pay much more in the long run by refinancing the house. At best and with great credit, you could get the student loans in the 3% range with private company refi (...

re: 2016 Ford F150 Lariat.... - Wade Phillips
This time last year, I was able to get a good deal on a 2015 lariat that had sat on the lot a while. Able to get all the rebate incentives and 0% for 72 months. Don't let them tell you they can't do it. It took leaving the dealership on 3 separate occasions, but they can do it. I can't remember exac...

re: Real Estate Lawyer - Wade Phillips
I would be skeptical of any attorney charging less than $200/hr. I'd expect to pay $250/hr or so for a quality lawyer that can capably handle residential acquisition/disposition and title/land use issues. Assuming your transactions are based off of promulgated forms, this attorney should be well ver...

re: Athens, GA - Wade Phillips
Lived there for several years. Hit up World Famous for good food and drinks. Last Resort is a must. Going to the breweries is good advice (especially Creature Comfort - walking distance). The beauty of Athens is you can walk a few blocks popping in and out of bars until you find a scene that you pre...

re: Anyone done a backdoor IRA? - Wade Phillips
[quote]Usually a backdoor roth IRA means that you make too much income to make a normal roth IRA contribution, so instead you make a traditional IRA contribution (no income limits there), then convert it to a Roth.

re: Tulum, Mexico Review (January 2017) - Wade Phillips
[quote]Did none of the restaurants take credit cards?[/quote] Almost everywhere was cash only. And using my credit card for the hotel subjected me to the CC company's exchange rate, which proved less favorable than I may have found had I searched around and traveled with pesos. That being sa...
