My Favorite Things: Mickey Martin
Wine and spirits specialist, LeBlanc’s Food Stores
BATON ROUGE EXPERIENCE OR ATTRACTION
Tailgating and LSU football. I’m a West Coaster, and nobody can hold a candle to Tiger fans!
PLACE FOR LUNCH
Real, fresh Cali-style sourdough bread…and In n Out Burgers
WAY TO SPEND A SATURDAY MORNING
Projects—my wife Shelli and I have an unending list of projects. But the backyard rocks!
Right now…Blacklist. All time…Simpsons or Cheers. 24 was cool, too.
WAY TO SPEND $20
Good hunk of cheese and a killer bottle of red (yes, that’s doable for $20).
CLASS IN HIGH SCHOOL
Yearbook, because I was able to leave class and go to the beach almost every day “on assignment.”
WAY TO GET MYSELF MOVING IN THE MORNING
Wake up…I’m a ball of energy usually.
Camping trips with my family and friends
SONG ON MY IPOD
“Paradise City” by Guns N’ Roses
ITEM IN MY WARDROBE
Flip-flops—it’s rare to find real shoes on my feet outside of work.
A Pirate Looks at Fifty by Jimmy Buffett
CONCERT I EVER ATTENDED
Guns N’ Roses and Metallica in San Diego in the ’90s. Close second is any Jimmy Buffett concert…I’ve been to 61 of them!
ONLINE SHOPPING DESTINATION
The Caribbean. The U.S. and British Virgin Islands are amazing!
