re: Tampa Recs - wiltznucs
Agreed, the Columbia would be more accurately described as Spanish cuisine IMHO. They do some Cuban dishes and do them well. Bern's is what I call "Florida Formal" meaning anything goes. I've seen folks in shorts with a polo and flip flops in there many times. Slacks and a dress shirt is perfe...

Any of y'all have experience with Rocket Pots out of Covington? - wiltznucs
Long story short, ordered a pot on 5/17. Told it would be 2-3 weeks. So now some six weeks out, they don't answer the phone and their voicemail inbox is full. No response to emails. Was able to get someone on the phone last week, was told they'd call me back with an update. Glad I didn't hold m...

re: Ban the box on college applications? - wiltznucs
Agreed, it's college and not a job. The college can and should look after the safety of their students. A violent criminal history should certainly be considered in admissions. A misdemeanor charge like drug possession should be irrelevant as let's face it a considerable amount of students an...

re: What do you pay for craft beers? - wiltznucs
Pints have pretty much settled in around $6 here locally at most Breweries. Some still have them at $5. Stouts or other special offerings between $7-10. Special release bottles average $20-25 for big stouts. Some have hit the $30 mark....

re: Should every man own a suit? - wiltznucs
The MBA in me says yes... The self employed adult in me says it really depends on your industry and stage of life. A must for white collar professionals or if you find yourself at numerous formal events or weddings. The happiest day of my life was donating my suits and dress shoes to Goodwill...

re: The Radium Girls — still glowing in their coffins - wiltznucs
I worked with Radioactive Materials for nearly 20 years. This is the usual case study for Radiation Biology and is certainly among the more fascinating incidents. Other good ones are the Marshall Islanders after the US atomic bomb testing in the Pacific. The US failed to consider wind direction ...

re: So we have the homebrew threads, but anyone ferment their own wine? - wiltznucs
I own Garagiste Meadery in Tampa, FL. We specialize in mead; but, we've been known to dabble in traditional table wines from time to time. Our first commercial offerings should be out there this Summer. FL distro only for the time being. Wine kits are pretty much fool proof as I mentioned ea...

re: So we have the homebrew threads, but anyone ferment their own wine? - wiltznucs
I've homebrewed a few, now I do it for a living and own a winery. Some great kits out there that have won numerous awards in reputable competitions. The only challenge with kits is that they are typically made to be fool proof. This often means the included yeast strain is a aggressive cham...

re: If InBev bought Parish and MillerCoors bought Great Raft... - wiltznucs
My issue with the buyouts is basically two parts. First is economic, the money that used to be generated was American and at least in theory was spent here. Now those profits and to some extent jobs flow to Europe and South Africa. The second is my belief that the logical endgame for ABInBe...

re: Which city has the best food in all of America? - wiltznucs
I love NOLA and think it does a wonderful job showcasing regional cuisine that simply isn't duplicated in any other corner of the world. Given its relative size, NOLA is quite impressive albeit a bit romanticized too. What NOLA lacks is variety. This is where NYC, San Fran, Chicago, Miami (I kn...

re: Kenmore Elite Refrigerator stopped Cooling - wiltznucs
Just replaced our Kenmore fridge. Only six years old. Been loud as hell for the past two years. Had to replace the freezer coil, a thermostat and the French door seal in the past year to the tune of $1,200. Water and ice stopped working a week or two ago. Quote was another $300 to switch out an ...

Not a great pic, but it's my daily wear watch. Had it for about four years now. [img]http://i18.photobucket.com/albums/b121/wiltznucs/IMG_9219_zpsvzx1rtul.jpg[/img]...

re: Gobbler question - wiltznucs
It's a day to day thing. I hunted a WMA near Ocala a few weeks back for a few days. We literally didn't hear a gobble or see a Tom for the first two days. The third morning the woods came alive and I'm sure I heard no less than 10 gobblers that morning from where I stood. Don't let anyone disc...
