re: New Years Even in Europe Recs - rsb831

re: Flying from Houston to NYC on United...fly into LaGuardia or Newark? - rsb831
If you are flying before 12/31 and have an Amex, link it to your Uber account and get 2 rides from select airports up to $65. Did it at LGA and fare was $47 to East Village. From DCA to Capital Hill South was $9, so I left a few dollars on the table. [link=(https://www.uber.com/promo/american-exp...

re: NYC area restaurants - rsb831
Just got back and had one of the best meals in a while at Beatrice Inn in the West Village. Incredible 60 day aged ribeye and whole branzino. Sides were amazing. Roasted whole squash and a potato terrine that was decadent. They also have a 127 day whisky aged tomahawk ribeye that was too pricey for ...

If you have equipment, there are lockers at gondola to keep your shoes if you don't want to walk that far in...

re: Jason Isbell - New Orleans - 10/22 & 10/23 - rsb831
Ran into Isbell walking his daughter in stroller earlier this afternoon on O'Keefe. Took everything in me to keep from geeking out and gushing. Played it as cool as I could and said that I was looking forward to the show. He said thanks for coming and see you tonight. Made my day. ...

Recommendations for London is actually pretty difficult because there are so many great things, but I’ll try to narrow it down into some categories. Pubs: - The Marquis Cornwallis in Bloomsbury is a GREAT pub. It’s rather large, as far as pubs go, so theres usually a place to sit — which is qui...
