The Big Cheezy, New Orleans, La., Report #44

New Orleans is known as the “Big Easy”.  The name of this place is obviously a play on that.  I was playing around on Facebook and saw an ad where if you signed up for their VIP club you get a free grilled cheese sandwich.  I signed up, they e-mailed me a coupon, so since… Continue reading The Big Cheezy, New Orleans, La., Report #44

Bruno’s Tavern, New Orleans, La. Report #42

A local food critic named Tom Fitzmorris always advised against buying Groupons to go to restaurants.  I have no idea why.  I’ve discovered SOOOOO many good restaurants through Groupon!  And what’s wrong with getting your food at a discount?  The restaurant put themselves on Groupon!  I didn’t.  I just always make sure to tip on… Continue reading Bruno’s Tavern, New Orleans, La.
