re: Hogs relocates event to UNO - BlackenedOut
I am not kidding when I tell you we hauled out approximately 20 dumpsters worth of just plywood from that site last year. Might have caused a momentary spike in the plywood futures market. ...

re: Hogs relocates event to UNO - BlackenedOut
Its the northeast quadrant of the site. So for reference sake it is bordered: On the north by the levee, to the East by SUNO housing, to the west by parking lots for Lakefront Arena, and the south by the arena and the Maestri baseball stadium. Post Katrina it was made into an RV park, so they...

re: Hogs relocates event to UNO - BlackenedOut
To be clear, didnt think you were hating, just wanted more info around biking so we can address and prepare for issues. I always see folks biking from all parts of the city to Jazz Fest and it always looks like work to me no matter the distance. Thanks for the insight, appreciate it. :cheers:...

re: Hogs relocates event to UNO - BlackenedOut
I am admittedly not a biker, but why can't someone bike to UNO? Its another 4 miles, which seems like a far bike ride to me, but I dont ride. We also plan on having cab stands/ride share stands. ...

re: Hogs relocates event to UNO - BlackenedOut
Its an interesting question but remember the Pope drew 110,000 people to that site (granted different time and event). Our number one goal was finding a space that could help all of our teams thrive. We think UNO fields does that. If we invest in our teams, the patrons will follow. UNO Arena ...

re: Baby coming, need help with frozen meal ideas - BlackenedOut
Let me go the other way on this. With a newborn, the last thing you may have time re food for is to pull out a frozen pan of lasagna, wait a day for it to defrost, heat the oven and bake for an hour. When we had our newborns (which newborns are relatively easy although you dont realize this with...

re: Avignon and Barcelona recommendations? - BlackenedOut
Avignon is a great little town that is a good place to base wine tasting operations out of. Plus loads of historical sites (all the papacy stuff, plus lots of Roman ruins). If you like wine, you are smack dab in the middle of some great sites. For instance to your north you have Chateauneuf du Pape ...

re: Contemplating taking 2 kids under 4 to Europe, thoughts? - BlackenedOut
Do it. Travel with kids whether you are going to the beach, a theme park, Europe or Asia is travel with kids. It will be stressful, involve a lot of logistics, and ultimately not be same travel as what one would have done without kids. However, it creates a different set of expectations, benefits...

re: Bar Frances on Freret - BlackenedOut
Trying too hard? It looks like the menu from a thousand other bistros/casual spots that have opened over the last few years. There was an Eater joke menu going around a few years ago, with things like Roast Chicken For Two and Weird Uni Dish. This one is markedly similar. ...

re: The best Tales of Cocktail events? - BlackenedOut
The seminars have always been immensely entertaining. I know they have changed it in the past, but I would go to a couple of seminars and be able to do tasting throughout the week. The seminars usually have something of interest (the role of air travel in cocktails, charleston drinking, Hemingwa...

re: Where in Lafayette can I buy good Spanish chorizo to make a paella? - BlackenedOut
I'd think any dried, spicy sausage would work. Look for a Columbus brand sausage at your grocer's deli aisle. Its decent stuff and good in cooking application such as this. You can probably find higher quality stuff on the internet or at a specialty food store (such as Fra Mani). But I am not ce...

re: Where in Lafayette can I buy good Spanish chorizo to make a paella? - BlackenedOut
If there are 20 chicken and chorizo paella links on the internet, it tells me this. Some Chorizo company sent out a recipe to about 5000 Food bloggers looking for them to write about a "new twist on paella." Some took the bait and then a few others are cribbing recipes from the original bloggers and...

re: Where in Lafayette can I buy good Spanish chorizo to make a paella? - BlackenedOut
Sorry I wasnt clear. What I meant is saffron has a very distinct and necessary flavor to paella. Adding something like chorizo, in my estimation, would fight with that saffron flavor. ...

re: Where in Lafayette can I buy good Spanish chorizo to make a paella? - BlackenedOut
Is Chorizo absolutely essential to the paella? I only ask because I usually just use some thin sliced ham (prosciutto or jamon) if I need that pork kick. I would worry the chorizo would overpower the end result of the dish with its saffron. ...

I got turned onto grilling avocado and topping it with some sauteed shallots and bacon with a touch of red wine. I highly recommend it. Hat tip to Cafe Henri on this idea. ...
