thumbnail for Big Woodrow's Bar & GrillKind of an indoor/outdoor bar. Great crawfish, relatively cheap drinks, a pool table, attentive staff. Trivia on Tuesdays and a great place to catch any game. Huge patio.

Montebello Condos

thumbnail for La VistaLa Vista might be the best kept secret in the area for traditional dining. It does t look like much on the outside but everything on the menu is four star gourmet, believe it it not. Also, you can bring your own wine; I recommend the mussels.

thumbnail for Berings HardwareNot your everyday hardware store. Of course they have all the sundry items most hardware stores do, and with better customer service. But the kicker here is their gourmet truffle department and their fine selection of coffee.

thumbnail for Postal-MaxThis are is not immediately convenient to find a post office within, so I go here often to use their postal services. They charge a little more than USPS, but no lines. And they have a notary public.
