there are many good things about Louisiana, but the food is #1. and if Abita counts as craft beer, i'd put Purple Haze against anything Washington has to offer.
 
2014-01-09 03:00:42 PM  
That's pretty weak trash talk.

Oysters are awesome.  I've had them in both places and Louisiana wins hands down.
 
2014-01-09 03:58:57 PM  
Gulf oysters are better raw on the half-shell and Washington oysters are better for cooking.

Oysters and trash do go hand in hand.

I hope the Seahawks lose, and I hope their players blame the 12th man for having a crappy day

NOLA native here.

Gulf oysters are perfect for frying, adding to gumbos and roux-based dishes, or grilling (ala Drago's restaurant in Metairie).

But on the half-shell (plain or Prussian style)?  Give me NW-sourced oysters every time.  they taste better, and have far less grit and gulf-funk on them.

And lose.  Seriously.  New Orleans kicks the crap out of everywhere in terms of food, but you won't win a craft beer fight with Washington.  It's alright, though, few states do (OR, CO, CA come to mind).

I'd have to agree.  Dixie and Abita make great stuff for sure, but the craft brewers in WA and OR are on a whole other level.

WA/OR wineries are not to be taken lightly either.

Neither of those sound like a bad way to serve oysters.

Sometimes you like it nice and fresh and simple. Sometimes you like it so spicy it burns going in and coming out.

Seconded.

I think the only food category in which we can beat Louisiana is cheese.

Come on, now.

I believe Washington offers better beers, but Abita is fine with me.

i like raspberry beer, you like hipster beer, let's call the whole thing off.

no but really i have very limited experience with Washington beers, i was just showing bravado.

and the muffaletta can beat the heck out of any Washington sandwich, so there.

Nasssssty no matter how you say it.

Gimme some fresh crab though, dungeness, blue, snow, king.  I don't care.

I don't care much for Oysters, but as a big Trey Anastasio fan, I found Oysterhead to be a very mediocre band.

Louisiana oysters are covered in garlic, butter and greatness

And oil.

I prefer the beignets. Does Seattle have beignets? No? Argument over.

Why Would I Read the Article: I don't care much for Oysters, but as a big Trey Anastasio fan, I found Oysterhead to be a very mediocre band.


Agreed; his other band is better, and with much better taste in football teams.

We were in Bellingham, WA this summer for my cousin's wedding and we went to a small little joint called Chukanut Brewing (and yes, I partially picked the place based on the name) and it was one of the better craft breweries I have been to.  They made stuff that was very accessible, yet tasty.

Chuckanut is solid. I lived in Bellingham for 3 years. Boundary Bay up there is good too.

If you throw a rock in seattle, you hit 2 coffee shops and a brewpub.

I was in New Orleans a couple of months ago and the oysters of my life. K-Pauls (I think was the name) in the French Quarter.

Still, the Hawks will smash the Saints all the way to agnosticism on Saturday.

I've never had oysters. I've had mussels, which I've heard are similar, and I hated them. Are oysters different enough from mussels that there's a chance I'll like them?

If you're worried about oysters and their consistency, try them BBQ'd first instead of raw.

Did you have the mussels in a garlicky, buttery broth? Nummy...nummmy.

That's not a good barometer, as damn near everything is delicious BBQ'd!

Hmm. Looking at the menu of the restaurant I had them at a few years ago (Wildfire, Chicago), they must have been "skillet roasted". Garlic and butter may have helped.

If Seattle wins the Louisiana senators have to dress up like hipsters. If New Orleans wins, the Washington senators have to show their tits for beads.
