    Any suggestions for Muncie/Indy? I fly into Indy late Sunday (driving up to Carmel for a hotel) then heading to Muncie where I'll stay two nights. Leaving late on the 31st so I have part of a day to kill in Indy/check it out (and drive by the speedway, of course). Any suggestions for food/things to do?

    If you're in the Big Easy, you gotta go to Muther's. Near the 'Dome. Everything there is fantastic. Po-boys, red beans and rice, everything.We "lived" there during last year's BCS title game.

    No, I don't care for any.


    micke is spot-on about Mother's. Get the roast beef with debris, some greens and maybe a little gumbo.

    I've actually found Mother's to be good, but overrated. Most days, for lunch, the line will be out the door. Not worth it. There are hundreds of other restaurants in the area.

    Going to Vegas next week. Sort of on a budget since it will be furlough time. Any suggestions as to what my friends and I should do?

    Also does anyone know which hotels have heated outdoor pools? We're staying at the Flamingo and the pool won't be open.

    Go see Vinnie Favorito at O'Shea's casino on the strip. Dude is fucking hilarious, and you should find a buy-one-get-one-free coupon on one of those maps you find all over the place.

    Heading to Los Angeles in a couple of weeks to cover the Pac-10 Tournament. I'm staying downtown, and was wondering if there are any restaurants/bars that are worth checking out? Also, any areas downtown to avoid? I know that you pretty much don't want to be out walking around at night, but is there anywhere I should try to avoid during the day, as well? Thanks.

    During the day you're fine. You'll know when you're in the places you should avoid. Lots of stuff by Staples. I don't know where you're staying, but breakfast at the Pantry is kind of a local tradition. You should also get a french dip at Phillipes. Don't forget to get a double-double at In-n-Out somewhere along the way.

    If you've got a big expense account, try Pacific Dining Car. Big old red meat place.

    I don't know what your budget is or what your tastes are. But I'm in LA multiple times a year, and I always always always stay at the Marina del Rey Marriott. It's a great, great area ... right near Venice Beach ... World Famous Hinano down the street. Nice Italian joint down the street. Nice Mexican joint. And an In and Out is close, too. And they just built an Aunt Kizzy's across the street.

    It's a 20-30 minute ride to Staples, if there's no traffic. Unless it's a weekend morning, there will always be traffic. So if you're going to have to go to and from Staples several times a day, maybe this isn't for you. If you're just covering one team and only have to make the trip once a day, I highly recommend Marina del Rey.
