re: French Laundry- Napa - BlackenedOut
Let me break the trend here. When we went I took the money we would spend for everyone to do the pairing (or whatever your group wants to spend) and told the sommelier “here is what we want to spend on wine. This list is insane. But you have our budget. Take it away”. It was awesome. Rather than...

re: Gov. Edwards’ COVID public health emergency order has been terminated by legislature - BlackenedOut
Go look at the city of New Orleans social media. They are showing a graph that shows mask wearing and rates of infection. All well and good as it shows Orleans parish with shockingly low infection rates. The problem is the data the graph relies on is from June and July. So they are using their p...

re: Anyone else make chili oil? - BlackenedOut
Love chili oil. Make it occasionally but oftentimes just buy it. Love to make popcorn with it and some Szechuan peppercorn. You look to be almost to Chili Crisp, which is probably one of my favorite condiments ever. Always just buy the “Angry Chinese Lady” brand. ...

Wish I could be more positive but here goes There is a reall really good chance you screw the pooch here. Brisket is the second hardest meat to really nail (beef ribs to me are #1).

re: Will New Orleans' neighborhood bars survive coronavirus pandemic? - BlackenedOut
It’s almost as if the lessons learned in the failed experiment known as Prohibition have been completely forgotten. Americans, and not exclusively, crave a third place a bar, restaurant, meeting spot, to be with others. You can stop them from gathering in bars but you won’t stop them from gathering....

re: Mark Hughes, owner of the Cannery in NOLA had a private meeting with Latoya Cantrell - BlackenedOut
Let's say the heavens part and the Feds give every city with at least 250,000 residents, $100 million. What the hell would New Orleans do with it? No infrastructure was damaged like in Katrina. The real loss is business and economic activity and resulting tax revenue; but I wouldn't trust most mayor...

re: Mark Hughes, owner of the Cannery in NOLA had a private meeting with Latoya Cantrell - BlackenedOut
The more important question is who would want to run against her? You are going to be inheriting an even more bankrupt city, businesses and residents who have left depleting the tax base, crumbling infrastructure, and god knows what other problems we dont even know about?

re: Best store bought pizza dough and pizza sauce? - BlackenedOut
Preach, HO. I make that recipe twice a month or so, easy enough to scale up for a crowd. Takes about 5 minutes of active work the night before you want pizzas. Costs maybe $1.00 in raw ingredients (and that is a stretch - no pun intended). Produces a fantastic dough. If you are going to to t...
