my personal favorite is marliave's $1 oysters, they also have great cocktails

Fear of a Roast Chicken

hmm, never had too much of an issue going the simple route: i put chicken in a cast iron pan, coat with salt, pepper, and other seasoning, and place in a 400 degree oven. make sure the stuffing doesn't contain too many vegetables that will release water. if you don't need the skin as crispy, baste it with the juices every 30 minutes. usually an hour and twenty is perfect.

oh, and let it rest for 30 minutes outside the oven before carving!
