Crescent City Brewhouse, New Orleans, LA Report #406

I’m not going to reveal my age but I can brag that I’m old enough to have survived Hurricane Betsy. I was born in New Orleans and have been here my entire life. I’m one of the locals who doesn’t like going into the French Quarter. In fact, I can think of times in my… Continue reading Crescent City Brewhouse, New Orleans, LA Report #406

Port Orleans Brewing Co., New Orleans, LA Report #391

I’m a long time die hard Saints fan. For anyone who doesn’t know, the Saints are our National Football League team here in New Orleans. And one of their former players, named Zach Strief, is part owner of this place. He was a great player and a great guy, so I’ve been wanting to patronize… Continue reading Port Orleans Brewing Co., New Orleans, LA Report #391

Vinnie’s Caddyshack Bar & Grill, Metairie, LA Report #385

RiverShack Gretna, Gretna, LA Report #260

This place is located right on the Mississippi… Continue reading RiverShack Gretna, Gretna, LA Report #260

BJ’s Restaurant & Brewhouse, Slidell, LA Report #62

BJ’s is great.  Unfortunately for me they don’t have one in New Orleans.  The only three in Louisiana are in Slidell, Baton Rouge and Lafayette.  I had to attend a family funeral in Mississippi, so on the way back we decided to stop at the one in Slidell for dinner. As you’d guess by the… Continue reading BJ’s Restaurant & Brewhouse, Slidell, LA Report #62

The Chimes, Covington, LA #55

I live in New Orleans, and sometimes when you see my reports you’ll see places like Metairie, Harvey, or Gretna, Louisiana.  All of those places are in the New Orleans metro area and at most a 10 minute drive from the New Orleans CBD.  This ones a little further.  Covington, Louisiana is on the north… Continue reading The Chimes, Covington, LA #55
