re: Heading to D.C. tomorrow - hungryone
Driving is a terrible idea, as parking is impossible. Public transit is safe, clean, orderly, and cheap--use it. The DC circulator buses take you past most of the major sights, the Metro gets you practically everywhere that's not Georgetown (and there's a G-town connector bus running from DuPont c...

re: Thoughts on taking a gap year to work with a non-business degree before MBA? - hungryone
Get a job....NOT as a bank teller. Sales might be good, as you will quickly find out whether you're cut out for it. if I were in your shoes, I'd be looking for international experience, to broaden horizons/worldview, for fun, and to learn about what you do and don't like. You sound like you've do...

re: Travelpro Luggage (Good Quality?) - hungryone
I own 2 maxlite 4 bags, one spinner, one roll aboard, in the international carry on size. They are plenty sturdy enough as a carry on, though I'd be a tad concerned about the exterior fabrics durability if I ever planned to check. Pockets are fine, I esp like the small exterior stash pocket to hol...

re: San Francisco in June, things to do - hungryone
There are night tours of Alcatraz...very cool. The Cliff House at Seal Rocks is touristy but a wonderful place to watch the sun set from the bar while eating a burger. Ferry Building Farmer's Market is a sight to behold, if you're into markets. Pair a drive to Muir Woods with a short side trip to...

re: Anybody have a recipe for a good seafood jambalaya or paella sort of thing? - hungryone
I grew up on brown (as opposed to red w/tomatoes) shrimp & sausage jambalaya....you add the (fairly big) shrimp at the end w/the rice....once it's done, add beaucoup chopped green onions & stir them into the jamb. It's still my favorite kind, and I'm always disappointed in the flavor of the all-mea...

re: Engagement trip options - hungryone
If you really want to do the impromptu let's get married on a trip thing, consider San Francisco. City Hall is a gorgeous building, you can schedule your appointment for a marriage license & (optional) ceremony, they let you choose whether to use a smaller room or the rotunda for your ceremony, and...

re: 1st trip to Europe - hungryone
I usually carry a photocopy of my passport folded up in my handbag or wallet, stick a copy of it in my suitcase (this one is always there) plus I do have a photo of it stored in my phone. ATMS work fine, I like to have some cash at all times for small purchases. I usually put big stuff, larger m...

re: Planning a trip for others - hungryone
First things first--do they have passports? No way to set all of this in motion on the sly if they don't already have passports. How nice of you guys to do this for them! Edinburgh is on my short list of places to visit....

re: Rick Steves Best of Italy 17 Day Tour - hungryone
I'm no fan of packaged tours w/groups of other Americans: if I wanted to hang out w/Americans, I wouldn't go all the way to Italy. Traveling in a larger group of your fellow countrymen will insulate you from having to interact w/locals....no thanks on that type of travel for me. You're essentiall...

re: Advise on quitting soft drinks - hungryone
Sparking water (like Perrier or San Pellegrino) with a few shakes of your favorite bitters....I use Fee Bros cherry bitters and a squeeze of lime. Refreshing, more flavor than plain water, and definitely better for you than most carbonated options. +1 on the La Croix stuff. Try various flavors ...

re: Rick Bayless Frontera Sauces - hungryone
I use 'em for quickie weeknight stuff....I like the roasted tomato version and the red chile mole kind. The original TX kind is fine w/ground beef or turkey, but for a picadillo style filling, I prefer the Penzey's bold taco seasoning dry blend....

re: Does ultimate rewards site jack up the prices? - hungryone
So I just got burned on a ticket purchased through UR.....booked a ticket not using points, then the price dropped by 650 a ticket within two days. UR would do absolutely nothing for me--I didn't want a refund, I merely wanted to cancel the ticket, rebook at the lower rate, and then have a credit w...
