  1. Every year for Superbowl I like to throw a party. One of the things I do is serve a menu of dishes that are composed of regional foods of the competing teams. Some of them are easy to come up with like Buffalo=wings, but others I don't know too much about. What I'd like to do is compile a list of foods for each city to make future parties easier to plan for. Any and all help will be appreciated. BTW, there can be more than one entry per city/region. Atlanta - Soul Food, peaches, deep fried turkey Arizona - Southwestern Baltimore - Crabcakes Buffalo- Wings, Beef on Weck Carolina - BBQ (vinegar) Chicago - Pan Pizza, Chicago style hot dogs, Italian beef sandwhiches Cincinnati - Cinci Chili (Skyline) Cleveland - pierogis, sausage Dallas - BBQ (beef), Nachos, Chili Denver - Buffalo Detroit - Coney Island Dogs Green Bay- Brats, Wisconsin Beerchese soup Houston - Tex/Mex Indianapolis - Pork Tenderloins (for lack of anything better) Jacksonville - Grilled oysters, smoked kingfish Kansas City - BBQ Miami - Stone Crabs Minnesota - Walleye, macaroni hotdish, Scandinavian Ethnic - Lutefisk, lefsa, and krumkake. German Ethnic - Halupse, dumplings, krautstrudle, and kuchen. Chicken and wild rice soup. New England - Clambake New Orleans - Something Cajun or creole New York (Giants) - Pizza, cheesecake New York (Jets) - Pizza, cheesecake Oakland - See SF. Or chitlins according to Yukon. Philadelphia - Cheesesteak, soft pretzel, Hoagies Pittsburgh - pierogis, Primanti Bros. San Diego - Fish Tacos, Shrimp tacos or burritos, carne asada burritos, swordfish and lobster burritos San Francisco - Wine and Seafood (crab), Sourdough bread Seatle - smoked salmon St Louis - Toasted Ravioli, Mostaccioli Tampa Bay - Grouper sandwich Tennessee - BBQ (Memphis) Washington - Crabcakes, seafood
  2. Free to a good home

    Ok, so last week I had a running battle with the air conditioner guy. I'm not going to go into the details other than to say never do business with that cesspool of mutant fektards known as ARS. One piece of collateral damage in this whole drama was my subwoofer. It is a Definitive Technology PF 15 that's about 4 years old. I've been thinking of ugrading my main speakers to some Def Tech BP7002s with the built in subs so this seemed like the perfect excuse. So here's the deal. You probably don't want to pay to ship this monster anywhere (at least 50 lbs but I do still have the original packaging) but if you want the sub, it's yours. It cost $750 new, I figure that $150-$200 in repairs gets you a really nice sub. You come pick it up, or I will ship if you want to pay it.
  3. I'm not going to taint these results by providing a list to choose from. There are an awful lot of just start to finish, oh my god, blow your mind albums. So in your opinion, what is the single best ever recorded? Include your reasoning if you're so inclined and we're not limiting it in any, way shape or form. I'm going to provide two that I think are the epitome of what they're trying to achieve and as the arguments begin, I'll weigh in with what I think are honorable mentions. You are not limited by these categroies though. Are you Experienced? - The Jimi Hendrix Experience Start to finish this is just one fracking fantastic album. There are no bummer cuts, the production quality is excellent and it stands tall in that regard even today. That and the sound was truly revolutionary. 12/31/95 - Phish There is a distinct difference between being able to reherse the music, come into a studio like a professional and play the stuff you have to, then getting the hell out of the way while the producer makes all the final little tweaks and being able to stand up on stage and play something start to finish while keeping the energy level up. Phish takes this to another level with this particuar live recording. Playing live as a band is tough enough, playing pieces with this level of technical precision yet maintaining the electricity and excitement of jams is something else.
  4. Single best album rock ever produced

    Certainly on my honorable mention list. This is always one of the CD's I take with me to audition audio gear.
  5. *** Official Everwars Thread ***

    I was thumping you a bit regularly while you weren't playing but you've evened that up pretty much. I have no need to test my mettle against someone I might lose to. Especially with all that fodder on the first two pages.
  6. *** Official Everwars Thread ***

    You're not ranked high enough for me to waste my time on. I only pick on pepple ranked on pages 1-3 and page 3 is about to go.
  7. Computer Question

    If you know what day this began happening AND you're running Windows XP, then you can do a system restore to the day before. This may resolve the problem. If this does correct the problem then you MUST immediately do the following: Back up ALL important data to DVD or CD. This includes all the crap you should have removed from AOL a long time ago, all your pr0n and the patterns for the curtains you wife has been saving but not telling you about. Make a list of all the programs that you MUST have on the computer. It would be really nice and smart of you if AOL was NOT on this list. Collect the installation disks/CDs/DVDs for these programs. Also make sure that you have written down any program specific information like mail servers for email programs and the like. Get a list of ALL the peripherals attached to this computer including thier specific model number and manufacturer. This includes modems, hard drives, CD and DVD Drives, sound cards, Ethernet cards, wireless cards, printers, faxes, and anything attached by USB. Go to the manufacturers site and download the latest drivers for each item on the list. Burn these items to a CD or DVD. Get the MS Windows XP installation CD. Take a deep breath. Boot the machine from the XP CD and follow the instructions. When it asks if you'd like to repair the current installation, say no. When it asks what partition you'd like to put XP on, delete all teh current partitions, create 1 new one and then format the puppy. Finish installing XP Allow XP to connect and download at least SP 2 from the MS Web site. Install all the device drivers. Install and configure the other software. Site back and enjoy a well earned adult beverage.
  8. Scorsese, Shamalan, Spielberg, Mel Brooks

    Brooks - Blazing Saddles - He harpooned EVERYONE Spielberg - Schindler's List - This is the only serious work he's ever done. Everything else was schlocky for lack of a better term. Even Ryan. Scorsese - Taxi Driver - Not a wasted shot in this movie. A travesty it didn't win the Oscar Shyamalan - Signs - A real creep fest and you don't even see the alien until almost an hour in. Just amazingly well done.

    First of all, Rating means nothing. It's just a relative measure of how cool your gear is. Second, we all dropped (I dropped to page 13 from page 2) because the made a change to the ranking system. They plan on making a bigger change to it once the player's market is stabilized, but for right now the change that was made should stabilize the ranking in a couple of days. In the mean time, come fight me Az. Let's see if you're as bad as you think you are. I'm currently ranked 250.

    There's a known bug in the rankings at the moment.

    If he's got enough libido left at 90 to still show it off, I say let him.

  21. Greatest American Rock Band

    That I would agree with. TMR gets the most press solely because it was during this period that he had his closest association with Zappa. Were it not for FZ, the good Captain would have never made it past the dollar bin.
  22. Greatest American Rock Band

    I would not say that TRout Mask Replica was filled with good musicians. Zappa is a different story.
  23. homemade ice cream

    At one point in time I had a Ben and Jerry's book of ice cream recipes. If I can find it, it's yours.
  24. Grilling Question

    On teh gas Weber, I will sear only exceptionally thick cuts of meat. Otherwise, it is direct medium (about 450 degrees) closed for about 5 minutes per side. Doneness, it told not by time or temp, but by the firmness of the meat.
