And the Valley Drinks: Tin Roof's Yonder Hefe

A newer local offering that fits the weather well. We've covered Tin Roof a fair amount here, which of course makes sense. And to their credit, after a slow start they've made some nice efforts to not only diversify, but really improve what they already have. The tap room over at their brewery on Nicholson can be a lot of fun, with some specialty offerings available that they don't release and experiments. They have some TVs, games and host a trivia outing (usually with food via City Pork) on Thursdays. It can be a lot of fun. Anyways, they recently released a new spring seasonal, their...

LSU beats Auburn to Open Women's College World Series

After beating Auburn, LSU faces No.1 Florida tomorrow. Box Score Bracket LSU opened its College World Series campaign with a dominant 6-1 win over Auburn on Thursday. The pitching and offense, which came alive during the Super Regional victory over Arizona, was present in the victory over Auburn. In the circle, Carly Hoover, threw a complete game allowing just one earned on six hits while striking out five. The Tiger offense struck early with a Bianka Bell solo home run to give LSU a lead in the top of the first. In the fourth, LSU would widen the lead on a two run double from Savannah...

CBS Giveth, CBS Taketh Away: Portion of 2015 SEC FB Schedule Released

Today CBS released a portion of their 2015 SEC Football schedule, and it seems the good times of 2014 LSU football at night were not meant to last. Like, at all.

Poseur Ranks the World: Spin 300 Oversights

Second guessing someone else's list A little over a week ago, Spin magazine honored its 30th Anniversary by trying to tick off the internet, and ranking the 300 greatest albums released since the magazine began publication. A list like this is not going to please anybody pretty much by design, but let's give them a little bit of credit: the list ain't bad. Of course there were oversights, some of which were truly egregious. So we get to engage in the best thing about someone else's list: second guessing it. Now, I'm not going to concerned myself with the actual rankings, because that's a...

Better Know The 2015 Women's College World Series

LSU vs. Auburn May 28th, 1:30, ESPN No.5 LSU vs. No.4 Auburn Thursday May 28th, 1:30 PM, ESPN No. 4 Auburn Tigers (53-9-0, SEC 18-6) How they got there: The only SEC team hotter than the Vols would be Auburn which has just one loss in the month of May, which included a series win over LSU in Baton Rouge in the season finally and then winning the SEC Tournament a few days later. The offense is the main force for the Tigers, ranking the top-15 nationally in a few major categories. Who to know: Auburn is another strong offensive team in the Series. Not only is it a deep offense it also has...

The Ultimate Tailgate Bracket Round 1, Appetizers/Snacks Region: (3) Queso Dip vs. (14) Zapp's Voodoo Gumbo Chips

Another classic dip versus Zapp's most underrated variety. No. 3 Queso Dip Cheese dip is right up there with guacamole and salsa as one of the more ubiquitous tailgating dips, but it's still a hit. Especially if you have a good, spicy homemade recipe. No. 14 Zapp's Voodoo Gumbo Chips They're one of the more recent varieties of Louisiana's best kettle chips, but they're aces. Spicy, sweet, salty and kind of savory all at once, Voodoo Gumbo kind of blends multiple Zapp's flavors perfectly. For my money, they're a strong No. 2 after Crawtators.

The Ultimate Tailgate Bracket Round 1, Deep-Fried Region: (2) Fried Chicken vs. (15) French Fries

One of the greats versus a classic deep-fried side. No. 2 Fried Chicken Whether you picked up a 12-piece from Popeyes or are frying your own cut-up bird yourself, everybody loves fried chicken. Tenders from Canes or your favorite grocery stop, in a brown paper bag from a gas station...it's hard to go wrong here. No. 15 French Fries Another side item that's always around and goes with almost anything else in this bracket, be it chicken, fish or some other seafood. And if you really want to be creative, you'll find a way to melt some cheese on them or toss ‘em in some gravy or something....

The Ultimate Tailgate Bracket Round 1, Barbecue/Grilling Region: (1) Pulled Pork vs. (16) Kabobs

Classic Southern barbecue versus a common grilling favorite. No. 1 Pulled Pork The OG of barbecue -- the thing you're starting with before you think about smoking anything. On sandwiches, as is, sauced, or without if you're good enough to let the rub carry it. Smoke it the night before and you can have it all rested and ready to pull at the tailgate and watch it all go bye-bye. No. 16 Kabobs They get points for simplicity. You make 'em the night before, throw them on the grill, and you can even eat them with one hand if need be. But personally, I think they're not worth the trouble. ...

Saban Has Some Bad Ideas

... which the SEC will, of course, adopt as quickly as possible Nick Saban stepped up to the microphones at the SEC annual meetings yesterday and had the audacity to complain that recruiting rules are unfairly biased against Alabama and the SEC. Let that sink in for a second. Alabama has signed the #1 recruiting class in six of the past seven years. Six SEC teams ranked in the top 10 recruiting this year, a decline from the seven top 10 classes in 2014. Any SEC coach complaining about an unfair recruiting landscape is like a fox complaining that the farmer locked the henhouse. It's not that...

The Ultimate Tailgating Bracket Round 1, Black Pot Region: (8) Roast Beef Debris vs. (9) Shrimp Creole

A pair of New Orleans classics! Turf versus surf! No. 8 Roast Beef Debris Maybe an even more perfect po'boy topping than fried oysters. Maybe. Simple enough. Take a beef chuck roast, sear it on either side, add some fixin's to the drippings and make a gravy and then simmer til the whole thing falls apart. It can be lunch, or breakfast served over grits or on a biscuit. Just like Mothers makes. No. 9 Shrimp Creole This is another fantastic colder weather dish. First you make a roux, then a nice spicy tomato-based gravy, throw some shrimp in and serve it all over rice. If you've got some...

The Ultimate Tailgate Bracket Round 1, Appetizers/Snacks: (2) Spinach & Artichoke Dip vs. (15) Wasabi Roasted Almonds

Another appetizer classic versus a personal favorite that will sneak up on you. No. 2 Spinach & Artichoke Dip It's up there with salsa, guac, French onion and the rest of the standard dips that are on just about every snack table at most tailgates. Chips, toast points, or if you're really fancy maybe even fry up some pasta for dipping, like at the Chimes. No. 15 Wasabi Roasted Almonds Okay, I'll admit to this being a personal call on my part, but these things rock. You get the crunch and the saltiness of roasted almonds combined with the flavor of wasabi and soy, with just the right amount...

So You Bought A Seahawk: The 2015 Baton Rouge Regional And You

LSU may not actually get the opportunity to beat Tulane for a third time. The first time you saw LSU's portion of the bracket, you probably had a few knee jerk reactions, such as "Wait, why are we not the #1 overall seed, Adam lied to us", "Oh my God we get Tulane in our regional", "We're paired with Houston, we're going to get our revenge! THEY DREW FIRST BLOOD!", or "Wait or we could get ULL, this is the best draw ever." Well, if we learned anything from last year then we know it isn't a good idea to get caught looking ahead and we should take it one game at a time, and don't make any...

The Ultimate Tailgate Bracket Round 1, Barbecue/Grilling Region: (8) Chargrilled Oysters vs. (9) Grilled Alligator

Of all the grilling items in this region, these have to be two of the best visuals. No. 8 Chargrilled Oysters Whether you're working out of a fresh sack and just doing this on the half-shell, or have some sort of specialty device like The Oyster Bed, you'll be king of your tailgate if you trot these bad boys out. It can be a little unwieldy, but the key is to have a system. Something to keep your oysters arranged and upright, and your buttery/garlicy/cheesey sauce pre-made. Warm it up, get the oysters going them slather ‘em down. Oh, and have lots of French bread on hand for...

The Ultimate Tailgate Bracket Round 1, Black Pot Region: (7) Alligator Sauce Piquante vs. (10) White Beans & Rice

One of the best ways to serve saurian versus another South Louisiana standby. No. 7 Alligator Sauce Piquante Does it really get any better than when you can feed an opposing fan their own mascot on the sly? Sauce piquante is one of the best ways to serve gator, as the texture and flavor of the meat works incredibly well with a long cook in a rich, spicy gravy. No. 10 White Beans & Rice Red Beans' brother has a slightly different flavor, a little more neutral. That makes it a tremendous companion for something like jambalaya versus just some plain white rice. Poll Who ya got in this...

The Ultimate Tailgate Bracket Round 1, Deep-Fried Region: (8) Buffalo Chicken Balls vs. (9) Hushpuppies

A delicious-sounding write-in candidate against a Louisiana seafood standby. No. 8 Buffalo Chicken Balls This was one of our write-in entries from readers Justin Goar and Scott Stoneham, and I do have to admit, it sounds pretty damn tasty: I start with drunk chickens that I roast. I shred all the meat, then mix it with a bunch of mozzarella, provolone, buffalo sauce, pepper, and green onion. I form them into golf ball sized balls, put them thru a standard dredge of flour, egg, and panko bread crumbs, then fry them up. No. 9 Hushpuppies Simple. Elegant. Perfect as a fried seafood side. Bits...

The Ultimate Tailgate Bracket Round 1, Black Pot Region: (6) Crawfish Etouffee vs. (11) Shrimp & Grits

A Creole or Cajun OG versus an East Coast delight we’ve made our own. No. 6 Crawfish Etouffee This one is almost a classic to the point of cliché. Still, it has its status for a reason, and if somebody tells you they're bringing this or planning on cooking it, you damn sure ain't complaining. Perfect outlet for some leftover tails from a spring boil that you tucked in the back of your freezer. No. 11 Shrimp & Grits Sauté some onions and peppers, maybe a little andouille, make yourself a nice rich sauce, throw in some shrimp and cook, then pour the whole thing over some grits. Yeah, it's...

The NCAA Got The 2015 College Baseball Bracket Completely Wrong

What's a "body of work" anyway? I was going to write an article comparing my last projections to the actual field, but what's the point of comparing my well thought out projections to something the NCAA threw together like a child doing his first paper mache project in elementary school? Here's everything the NCAA selection committee got wrong about the 2015 Baseball Tournament: 1) Southeastern Louisiana Southeastern Louisiana did everything right. The Lions went 42-17 overall, 25-5 in the Southland conference, and only lost one series all year, to Utah in early April. Here's the thing,...
