Where to find 25 cent oysters in new orleans

We gave $50 cash, need some ones so asked for change.
Shucker took tab/money, turned his back open tab took some money then handed to cashier and disappeared.
Our receipt showed we gave $45.
NO MISTAKE, I saw him take the money!
We were going to tip that anyway so no big deal but very bad if it is a pattern on behavior.

Where to find 25 cent oysters in new orleans

Went to Acme 12/11 at 11:00 morning. the oysters were good and the grilled oysters were great, but sitting at oyster bar we gave cash for bill and the younger man stole $5 before giving to cashier. We were going to tip $6 so we did not say anything nor did we tip any more. I hope it went to tip jar and not his pocket.

Hide your BBQ shrimp! Kukubura's coming back to town!

Because of all positive the comments on Mr. B's BBQ shrimp we went 12/10 at 5:30.
Everything was served luke warm and the BBQ shrimp was undercooked.
15 years ago, we really enjoyed the BBQ shrimp.
Nevermore for us.

Sapporo at Thanksgiving

No problems at customs (check-in luggage)
3 hams big sucess in sapporo, otaru, and tokyo.
smoked turkey breast - what you would expect, not good but no oven in sapporo.
frozen butterball - I nuked it because I was unfamiliar with the japanese convenction oven and no meat therometer, but tokyo relatives enjoyed their first tasted of (dry)turkey.
I am afraid they may expect this every visit.

Sapporo at Thanksgiving

Any turkey in Sapporo?, I have seen turkey legs for sale but no (pre-cooked) whole turkey.
I will take a (pre-cooked) frozen ham as usual, but cannot take frozen turkey and cook it - no oven.
Any other suggestions for restaurants/food? will be there two weeks.
