re: So I'm enjoying my first Ghost ever right now - LouisianaLady
I've had plenty Ghost and like it just fine, but man am I loving Jucifer right now. It's cheaper at every bar than any Parish option as well. [quote] Is Jucifer distributed throughout LA? I would like to try it[/quote] It's on tap almost everywhere right now if you're in BR. ...

re: Yard games at a wedding trashy? - LouisianaLady
Inexpensive weddings have always existed, but since the emergence of Pinterest, DIY/backyard weddings have become a really popular. Candle holders covered in twine or burlap, handmade tags all over the food and drink, chalkboard labels for different "areas" of the space, homemade photo booth props w...

re: Salting Steaks Far In Advance Of Grilling Them - LouisianaLady
There's a big writeup on it on Serious Eats by Kenji Lopez-Alt. I'd trust him before most other articles. I believe he said it must be 45 minutes or longer if you're going to do it in advance. Otherwise, just do it immediately before....

re: Are all small dogs loud as hell and a-holes compared to larger dogs? - LouisianaLady
[quote]When I was around 9 months old, my mother had a German Shepard named Gretchen. The dog was quiet except when I was crying. The dog would start barking to alert my mother.[/quote] My brother has a German Shephard that is so insane I can hardly be around it. It has been to obedience school, ...

re: First Time Using Uber: It's basically a taxi service with a cool app - LouisianaLady
[quote]It's hard to appreciate Uber if you weren't similarly situated during pre-Uber times. [/quote] Best way to put it. OP's experiences are obviously not great, but that's just transportation services in general. While a ride is technically a service, they are not in the customer satisfac...

re: Worst Travel Experience - LouisianaLady
[quote]Essentially I'd have a few hours where I was fine, 5 bites into a meal feel terrible, rinse repeat. Just stopped eating.[/quote] Do you ever have anxiety issues? When I was a kid, I got sick on almost every vacation. Even now, I don't necessarily get sick but I'm in bed much earlier each n...

re: Worst Travel Experience - LouisianaLady
[quote]Price. Can be super cheap. Travelers by themselves can find a room in a shared place for $25-50 a night. [/quote] I figured it was cheap - but I guess I just value my privacy a lot more than $100. I wouldn't be able to settle in and get comfortable in a stranger's home....

re: Worst Travel Experience - LouisianaLady
[quote]and this is why you always book airBnBs as "entire house" [/quote] I'm surprised how many people rent rooms in people's homes that they're also in. That gives me the creeps. I don't even stay with family when I visit out of town relatives. I need my own space to decompress. Another is...

re: Sushi Masa is the Golden Corral of Baton Rouge sushi joints - LouisianaLady
[quote]But what really turned me off was the crowd. Kids running all over the place and obnoxious parents either ignoring them or screaming at them. Just a crowd I don't like to eat around. [/quote] They have a very large group of regulars who have become close with the staff/owners, so they of...

re: Restaurant die-off is first course of California’s $15 minimum wage - LouisianaLady
[quote]Take me for instance. A year ago the SO and I would goto Vincent's a few times a months. Since joining UberEats I now order out once a week.

re: Restaurant die-off is first course of California’s $15 minimum wage - LouisianaLady
[quote]Why do you hate people who want to earn a living wage? [/quote] To be entirely fair, I'd have never wanted this wage increase as a server unless people were still allowed to tip. I didn't even work at an expensive place, and I made more than $15/hr most shifts. I can't imagine working ...

re: Restaurant die-off is first course of California’s $15 minimum wage - LouisianaLady
[quote]No way a restaurant owner can absorb that kind of cost.[/quote] Agree. [quote] And no way should a customer have to pay x number of dollars more for the same type of product that may be marginal at best (and was well suited for the price point they were at before the wage increase). [/q...
