Yep. You are correct. Misread the map.

Edit: going to correct a few. Port Allen actually extends further than I thought.
Edit 2: Actually no. That's unincorporated Port Allen. So, that doesn't count. The addresses are Port Allen because they don't belong to any city and it's the closest one.

Alrighty, I have no fucking clue what I was doing. I just saw Subway and rushed to help you out.

The assumption is that Red Stick does have all of those businesses?

Skepticism is not a position; it is an approach to claims.
Science is not a subject, but a method.

On one side, you have one the fastest growing, most commercially successful metropolises in the South (Baton Rouge), and on the other side, you have a dingy, run down, desolate wasteland-hellhole of a city that is Port Allen. The only thing Port Allen has going for it is that it's a port. And that means industry. Commercial business are almost non-existent... and everything that's left is in desperate need of repairs and restocking.

But, that's not the game.

The game I like to play is "Does Port Allen Have It?"

I've been very annoyed that whenever I need something; I usually have to go across the river to Baton Rouge to get it.

Um... I'm looking at this list and I fail to see Port Allen's lack of a Hastings listed anywhere.

AND IF ANY OF YOU DARES TO ASK ME WHAT HASTINGS IS, AS IF YOU ARE NOT AWARE OF THIS MOST WONDERFULEST OF ESTABLISHMENTS, THEN... WELL... SOMETHING TERRIBLE WILL BEFALL YOU!!!! YES! THE MOST AWFULEST OF AWFULS WILL COME UPON YOU AND YOUR HOUSE! Hobo Evil_monster Hobo





Note: The most awfulest of awfuls is most likely to come about in the form of mild butthurt on the part of EA and will almost certainly have no direct effect on you. Tongue

I read that in the voice of Stephen Fry! Big Grin Too funny.

I can't help but read every post of Muffs in the voice of Stuey Griffin! Big Grin

A man blames his bad childhood on leprechauns. He claims they don't exist, but yet still says without a doubt that they stole all his money and then killed his parents. That's why he became Leprechaun-Man
