re: Bringing cash on trip to Germany - convertedtiger
We were thinking of about $500. Would it be better to exchange the cash to Euros at our local bank today or wait till we get into Germany this weekend? eta: never mind. It looks like you get a better rate once "in country"...

Bringing cash on trip to Germany - convertedtiger
How much cash does everyone take on a trip to Germany? I was told that there still are quite a few shops in smaller German towns that don't take credit/debit cards. We will be hitting up some Christmas markets and such and I am wondering how much cash is a good amount to bring,and exchange, for a ...

re: OT Electric Outdoor Smoker experts, Assemble!!!!!!!!!!!! (UPDATE in OP) - convertedtiger
I only put foil on the bottom drip pan and the water pan for easy clean up. Anything else can restrict airflow and smoke flow. Another good tip is to spray the grates with nonstick spray before you smoke. It makes clean up a breeze. As far as cleaning the interior, I let it add extra flavor. I d...

re: Today is the first day of Epcot's Food & Wine Festival - convertedtiger
Glad you had a great time. My sister and her new husband just got back last night and were saying the same thing. They took a last second honeymoon trip there last week. I was shocked at how easy it was for her to get a bunch of ADR's booked and fast passes. She confirmed the shorter lines at th...

re: Who here likes Jay Ducote's BBQ sauce? - convertedtiger
And which show were you on? Since it's so easy, I would assume you have been on a few now. Unless there is no niche market for a straight up troll. Like or dislike the sauce, that's up to you. Taking shots at someone with a dream sounds like sour grapes. He stole your girl back in grade sch...

re: Disney for Adults - convertedtiger
I would suggest any other week but that one. Especially if it is your first time or if you haven't been in a while. We are childless but we have an absolute blast every year there. It's all about your timing. Like others have said, that is the busiest week of the year. Especially at Magic Kingd...

[quote]I was going to suggest Elena's but figured I would get downvoted to hell because it isn't "real" Mexican from Houston. [/quote] Miss Elena is about as authentic Mexican as you can get. The food there leans more toward the Mex than the Tex and I have rarely found better. The super nachos...
