It is just me or has there been a recent increase in advertisements from chains that have no locations on the southshore?

I've been seeing commercials for Carrabba's, Red Robin, Jack in the Box, Boston Market, and some other place that we don't have a lot lately. Have they always been there and I just never noticed it or are they just starting them? I have Cox BTW so I get commercials intended for the New Orleans DMA specifically, unlike satellite.

Yeah but I was guessing they were either buying network time or were running on a Cox national ad network

Where I live, if we get a commercial for something we don't have it means it'll be coming soon. We started seeing Sonic commercials and a year later we have 4 new Sonics. Same with Red Robin...so maybe that's it. Right now we're seeing commercials for Joes Crab shack.

It actually did pretty good until Katrina pushed out into the lake.
The one in Baton Rouge seems to pack nice crowds (but then again, that is BR).

On that note, Joe's Crab Shack and Red Lobster are last two places on earth that I would go for seafood. Every time I see the Joe's commercial with the "New Orleans" seafood pot I cringe. Let's not even talk about when Red Lobster started advertising jambalaya *cough* pilaf with meat *cough*. Only thing Red Lobster is good for is biscuits.

I had Red lobster once in NY. It was like eating a bowl of salt. Blech.
Anyway, I have a somewhat related question. As soon as I moved here, I located the nearest Dunkin' Donuts. According to their website it is the only one in the state of Louisiana. (I'm glad it's relatively close to me)! I've since heard from my fiance's coworkers that there are D&Ds all over the place. Where??? I haven't seen them and they don't exist according to the website.
I know this is silly, but a D&D iced coffee is one of my very favorite simple pleasures!

The only D&D that I know of is on Vets and like Houma I think?
Why did you have to mention Zea's, Prytania? Now I want grits. Their gator and grits is not bad either, just a little greasy.

We used to go to Joe's just to sit on the patio to overlook the lake while slinging back a few after work. I would venture a guess that added to their business since there were always tons of us out there just drinking. Landry's is nice but doesn't really work for that puropse .
