Coolinary Dinner at Muriel...

We never took kiddo out for his 22nd birthday in July. He ran off to Houston to see Copa America Centenario games with his friends and his study plan for the CPA exam (he’s taken three parts so far, got a 99 on Audit, a 98 on FAR, and BEC score isn’t back ye read...

Croque Madame at Wakin Bak...

(author’s note: I’m not affiliated with Wakin Bakin, other than being a very happy regular customer) I can’t say I don’t like going to Columbus, OH, for work. My colleagues there are great people and the Columbus Food Scene (#CbusFoodScene on Instagram) is pretty good. Still, like Glinda told Dorothy, there’s no place like home. I hit The Wall of humidity as I walked out of...

Dinner off the special boa...

LT Firstborn came down for a week to attend his ten-year reunion for the Brother Martin High School. He had fun with the Class of 2016! The family naturally took him to get All The Foods. That included dinner at Katies in Mid City.   Starting off at Katies It was the four of us, and the boys wanted beer, so we got mom a glass of Pinot Grigio as they explored the taps. I had “Batture Blonde...

#WineOClock – Sangri...

I’m a Sangria junkie, particularly at #WineOClock. Mrs. YatPundit, not so much. On a recent trip to Slice on St. Charles Avenue, the drink special was white sangria. I was all about it.

Citrus-y Sangria for #WineOClock This sangria was more citrus-y than some,...

YatCuisine Expectations &#...

I’ve got quite the fragmented personality on social media. I’ve got a number of friends who don’t like to talk politics, even though they’re more-or-less in agreement with my positions. Way back in the ancient times of Da Twittah, one of those friends suggested I separate out food posts. My general/political/omnibus Twitter account, @YatPundit was very busy. I thought, why not? It...

West Bank Beer Fest –...

West Bank Beer Fest is a beer tasting/drinking and music event that’s happening next Saturday, July 16th, across the river at NOLA Motorsports Park. New Orleans is no stranger to beer fests–we’ve had them for decades. What caught my eye about this particular event is just how many local craft breweries are around now to participate: Local (more or less) 40 Arpent Brewing...

#BeerThirty – “...

On my last outing to Bayou Beer Garden, I had Urban South’s “Charming Wit”. When my 21yo saw my untappd check-in for that brew, he asked if I’d had the Urban South IPA, “Holy Roller”, yet. No! So, I saw it at WFM in #themetrys, and brought it home. This is a good IPA–not overly hoppy, and a good finish. It’s less hoppy than NOLA’s Hopitoulas, which...
