    Fantastic info! The aviation museum sounds amazing.

    Roberto's... oh man. I'm ready.

    Fall is the winner for every reason you mentioned. Hopefully we can find a deal on the flights.

    Got to watch the game tonight. Was wearing my new Bayern Munich t-shirt... I think this might be the real deal.

    Also, something to think about ... Colin White plays. Sens win.

    ===
    Song 2 is so played. Sens need a new goal tune.

    Just letting you know that I'm still hanging around. Watching games when I can - saw the win vs the Preds the other night.

    Also, where do I apply for the President/CEO position?

    Got to watch a couple of Sens games the past couple of weeks. EK looks much better. Chabot is impressing me.

    So between Svechnikov and Zadina - who do you take?

    Still hoping to make the trip in the fall - will keep building up Hilton Honors points till then :)

    I'm still hanging around.

    Well looks like the trip may be off for this fall, going to see what happens the next few months to see if we can make it work. Need to keep my eyes on Westjet prices.

    But, if the team gets sold, that would be fantastic. Would be nice to see if the new money can bring in a proper front office. Also, I'd get my Karlsson jersey as he would be much more likely to stay.

    Too bad that the trip hit a snag. Hopefully you'll be able to make it work and find some good seat sales for plane tickets.

    Trying to see if the wife will be okay will a shorter trip - land in Toronto - dry or train (?) to Ottawa - see a game, then hustle to Montreal to see the sites (train or drive).

    If your stay in Toronto overlaps with a Senators game let me know, there's a big group of us expat Ottawans in Toronto who get together at a bar pretty frequently to watch/cheer on the Sens.

    My SIL and family live in Huntsville. We were down there 2 weeks ago.
    Didn't do anything Cajun but of course BBQ and some soul food.

    My niece got into hockey a few years back. She goes to about 4 or 5 Preds games a year. Probably less right now since she's at 'Bama. Her parents seem to be picking it up. They've been watching the playoffs even when she's at school now.

    Glad to see things are catching on down yonder. (as my late MIL would say)

    Thanks for the offer, but if I'm going all the way to Canada - I better see a game in person :)

    Cajun - not a lot of options in the area, but the BBQ is crazy awesome down here.

    I didn't get to a Preds game last year, schedule didn't work out, but hopefully we can go to a couple next year. Very cool about your niece.

    They do call us Hockey Town of the South.

    One little thing I find funny in an excruciating way is; I live 25 miles from the ACC here in TO. My SIL's place is about 100 miles from Bridgestone. Yet I can get door to door down there faster than up i can up here.
    Ya, traffic is crazy bad here.

    Love the ribs at Dreamland. Though they haven't been as good lately. Favourite true BBQ is probably New Market BBQ. We had Jim n Nick's last trip and it was good.

    Having never been to NO, my taste bud won't be as in tune as yours but we've liked Tim's Cajun Kitchen and Po' Boy Factory.

    I used to do a bit of food blogging. Here are some takes on places I've visited in NA.

    Loved the blog!!
    You captured Chuck and Bob's just perfect. Crazy thing about Chuck - I've been there once. The place was jammed pack and although the food was terrific, I didn't like the crowded scene.
    Bob's - that's my all time favorite and I feel as if I'm glowing after eating there.

    I live in Athens, so I can be in Nashville in about 85-90 depending on time of day.
    Tim's - solid.

    Po-Boy very close to home. If you catch the bread when it is fresh, then it is spot on, but smaller.
    We have a saying in NOLA - our gas stations make better food than your restaurants. :)

    ===
    I'm thinking of taking the train from YYZ (should play some Rush now) to Ottawa, and then again to Montreal, and then back Toronto to see some sites.

    Oops!

    This afternoon I remembered "Oh, my 35th Anniversary is next fall..." I promised the wife a trip to Italy. YAY!
    Boo!

    YAY!
