[quote]Have any of you tried Hicks BBQ in Northport?[/quote] Years ago there was a Hicks BBQ on Skyland Blvd near the Toyota dealership. It was just kinda okay back then from what I remember, and pretty sure it was the same folks as the Northport one. I want to say they had 3 different location...

re: Working home for 2 days, with the other 3 having a 5 hour round trip commute? - The Spleen
[quote]How would you personally feel about this?[/quote] No way, no how. That's a lot of wasted time in the car. I'd maybe consider it for 2 days in the office, 3 days at home, and just renting a hotel room for the 2 days in the office. Drive to office Monday morning, work in office, stay in ho...

re: Average mom works equivalent of two-and-a-half full-time jobs - The Spleen
[quote]But most on here don't think they should be paid quadruple what they actually are simply because their job is stressful or unrewarding sometimes.[/quote] Well quadruple of $0 is still $0, so there's quite a difference. The tone of these threads just sounds like resentment to me. And ...

[quote]How many truly “stay at home” moms are left that do everything? [/quote] Plenty. [quote]Does that salary account for all of the time spent going to lunch with friends, playing on Facebook/Twitter/Instagram/Snapchat, and going to Barre Method classes to gossip with the girls? [/qu...

re: OT: Best food in Tuscaloosa? - The Spleen
The steaks at Nick's are average, at best. You go there for the Nickodemus, the ambiance(or lack thereof) and the experience. I haven't been in ages, but for an old fashioned grease pit burger The Oasis used to be great. I've heard it's not as good as it used to be though. ...

re: Grand Caymans Travel - The Spleen
It's hard not to have a great time at most Caribbean destinations, but I have to say Grand Cayman has probably been my least favorite of the ones I've visited. It's certainly not horrible, but it didn't leave the same impression on me that St Thomas, St John, Turks, or Aruba did. The snorkeling ther...

He married some rich guy and they live in a massive house in Malibu and throw lavish parties on the reg. He hates the close-mindedness of a lot of Alabamans and rarely comes home ...

re: Can someone explain to me the appeal of Coachella - The Spleen
[quote]Yea, camping is it's own ordeal.[/quote] I kind of dreaded the camping thing when we went to the first Bonnarroo, but it really wasn't that bad. We were in an SUV with plenty of room to mule in lots of water, beer and food. Only bad part was people around you partying all night when you ...

re: When is the last time you went to Red Lobster? - The Spleen
[quote]Red Lobster was the nice place to take a date or hold special occasion dinners in the podunk AL backwater where I grew up. [/quote] Yep. Growing up I thought Shrimp Scampi from Red Lobster was the height of refined dining. I turned my nose up at my trashy brother ordering the popcorn s...

re: What days are you baws off for Easter? - The Spleen
We're closed Friday, but not for Easter or Good Friday. Some of our staff does a lot of tax season work, so instead of just giving those people off, the owners close the whole office every year on the Friday after tax season. Most of those people took today through Friday off. I may take Thursday of...

re: Women who don't cook and clean - The Spleen
[quote] How can you be bad at cleaning?[/quote] "Bad" maybe was the wrong word choice. I clean fine when I find the motivation to do it. Finding that motivation is where I struggle. Luckily my wife has no problem finding that motivation and does 85% of the cleaning. I do pick up after myself and ...
