[quote]Mine is similar. We can spend $200 more than the cheapest flight. Cuts us out of direct flights for some places. Spirit doesn't show up on Concur for me, though. [/quote]
With my last firm we had a catch-all that said 'client specified travel times' which we would use to ensure we could bo...

Its a la carte pricing. I don't get the hate, buyer beware. Granted I'm sure all of you were bitching and moaning in 2008 when airlines began charging for bags. It is just a different way to do business.

Oh fried cheese curds are definitely happening. When we went to Miller Park for an O's-Brewers game they sold fried cheese curd canoes. Just a boat of cheese curds. It was delicious.

Any ideas welcome! :geauxtigers:...

This was a bigger issue back in 2010 when if a flight was sub 50% seat factor they would cancel (almost exclusively regionals) and move everyone to the next flight.

No Aiken has no one to blame but the Astros. They are professionals, they know how this works, you don't railroad a player because he is unhappy with your lowball injury number.
If he wanted above slot 1 that's one thing, but they drafted him, performed a physical, didn't like it and offered him ...

How has Reynolds looked in Summer League? Coming off an injury I am not sure you run him out as a starter right away. Even if it is almost two years removed, Labrums are a finicky injury. Use him as a power reliever and limit his workload?...

Take the L, otherwise get there really early and park near Belmont or another surrounding neighborhood. Not lots of metered street parking up there.
As said before depending where you are staying drive to one of the more north red or west brown line stations and train in.

Any recs on a good spot for a semi casual business dinner in the quarter or even warehouse district, not too pricey like $20-30 mains?
When I am down there I usually treating myself to a fine dining, so I am not so up to date on the good mid range options.
