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 ...

It's a block and a half walk to Heavenly Gondola from Harrah's. If you rent from Heavenly Sports at gondola base, they will overnight equipment as well as your shoes during the day for free. If you have equipment, there are lockers at gondola to keep your shoes if you don't want to walk that far in...
