    I'm going to take Jim Tom Pinch's excellent suggestion and start a thread that I will stick and keep stuck as long as it is used regularly - like the LiveSTRONG thread.

    If it gets jacked or someone decides to be an asshole, I'll just delete it. Please keep the juvenile stuff elsewhere and thanks in advance.

    Use this thread to post advice/suggestions about road trips you have recently made OR to ask questions about places you will be going soon.

    Don't come to Flagstaff right now unless you really like trudging through two feet of snow. I feel like I'm in Syracuse or something ...

    Oh, carry on.

    In the next three weeks, I will be visiting both New Orleans and Vegas. What are the chances I'll return with all my faculties (particularly since you won't see me posting on the non-drinking thread)?

    But the question is, what's the best place to get a po-boy in New Orleans?

    Johnny's Po-boys on St. Louis St. is excellent. Prices can be a little high, but a good po-boy can be hard to find in the Quarter. Great for lunch.

    There is a really good place in the Garden District (close to Archie Manning's house), but the name escapes me at the moment. Maybe someone will remember.

    Any recommendations for restaurants in downtown Portland, Ore. that I may not have hit yet? Last couple of years I went to a seafood place (name escapes me now, but it was close to the Willamette) and to Typhoon, a Thai place a block from the hotel.

    I'm staying at the City Center Marriott.

    Driving tip:

    Interstate 95 between Brunswick and Savannah can back up when it gets really busy even though it's a "rural" interstate. North of Jacksonville through about Brunswick it's a six-lane highway, but both directions drop two lanes north of there to just south of Savannah; traffic tends to tie up there and also because of bridge construction through the coastal marshes.

    If you get bogged down in that mess, switch over to U.S. 17. Mostly two-lane highway but doesn't get backed up because nobody thinks about it. Brunswick and Richmond Hill are the best places to get on, but if you get stuck in the middle, most of the roads with interchanges connect with US 17 about a mile east of the interstate.

    I come in peace.

    If your job takes you to St. Louis, definitely order an Imo's pizza. Thin crust and very tasty. If you're in the mood to party, avoid Laclede's Landing, tho it is likely nearby. Teenybooper and frat/sorority hangout. Have a cab take you to Soulard instead. Much less hectic party scene. The University City Loop is also a good choice.

    The Hill is the best memory of my dealings with St. Louis. If you enjoy Italian food, that is the area to check it out.

    My only experience with New Orleans was the Final Four in 1982 (some freshman kid for UNC hit a jumper. I think that kid might amount to something some day ::) ).

    I don't remember much specifically except that Al Hirt's joint was a ripoff, Preservation Hall was cool, the French Quarter was definitely a spooky place if you get one block off the main drags, and everything else was a world-class blast.

    While I'm still young enough to enjoy it, I gotta do the Vegas/New Orleans double.
    ;D ;D

    So I assume most of these queries will be about:

    Topless bars
    Food at topless bars

    What is the chance someone may ask about a good museum or park to go to in one of these cities?
