re: Paying for pool - hungryone on 1/19/18 at 5:28 pm
Even at $60k, think of the 10 years of family vacations you could take each year at $6k a pop. That would require no financing, would expose your kids to the world, make for awesome memories and experiences, and be a far more sensible investment than borrowing money to build a pool.

re: Best Pad Thai in Metairie/Nola area? - hungryone on 1/19/18 at 3:09 pm
So it used to be at Siamese Thai (rip). It’s replacement, Thai Zaap is decidedly inferior. I hear good things about Royal Thai in River Ridge, but I haven’t tried it yet. ...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (1)
re: How to negotiate a space rental agreement for a snowball trailer - hungryone on 1/19/18 at 2:02 pm
I was thinking some sort of healthy-ish juice balls need to be on the menu if it’s next door to a giant hospital. Patients aren’t really your customers, the hospital workers are, so figure out how to do a Knudsen’s juices over ice or similar natural/low sugar options....Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)
re: 10th anniversary ideas - hungryone on 1/19/18 at 1:53 pm
Agree on Japan as a stretch, simply because it is incredibly difficult to navigate when you cannot read signs. Not saying it’s impossible, just that it adds a layer of complexity/stress you might not find pleasant. (Or hey, maybe you like the utter dislocation feeling)...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)
re: London, Innsbruck, Salzburg, Munich - hungryone on 1/19/18 at 1:48 pm
Yes...Documentation Center is the neutral name used rather than “museum”, so that it is clear that the past is not being glorified or celebrated, but is simply being documented. How the Germans deal with their awful recent past is very interesting. In Austria, specifically in Salzburg, we noticed ...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)

With or without a side trip to Scotland, it is a great short trip destination. Train to Edinburgh is about 4.5 hrs one way, can be scenic. If you don’t mind a connecting flight back in the states, you can fly back to NYC, etc out of Edinburgh....Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)

London. Fly nonstop on BA out of MSY. 9days is perfect. History galore from ancient to modern, an incredible array of food, amazing pub culture, easy to visit, easy day trips outside the city if you need to see less concrete. No language barrier, no need to undertake exhaustive planning for the ...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (1)
re: Family of 4 recommendations - hungryone on 1/19/18 at 12:34 pm
San Diego is a great family destination. The zoo is incredible, so is the associated Safari Park. Each of those is a minimum half day. Throw in a visit to see the seals at La Jolla, touring one of the ship museums in the harbor, a ride out to Sunset Cliffs for tide pools and the sunset....throw i...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)
re: How to negotiate a space rental agreement for a snowball trailer - hungryone on 1/19/18 at 11:23 am
As Gris said upthread, before you even begin negotiating, go to the location at various times during the day. Can you actually get in and out of the parking lot easily? A snowball is gonna be grab n go, unless you have some benches or picnic tables outside. So before you start talking money, make ...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (2)

Munich: the Hofbrauhaus is a tourist Mecca—skip it except for a walk thru. Go instead to the Augustiner Keller or Zum Augustiner, where actual locals go to drink and eat. The Viktualienmarkt area is fun, full of food shops and stalls, with a nearby Hacker-Pschorr beer halll/Restaurant, der Pscho...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (1)

re: Dong Phuong wins James Beard Award - hungryone on 1/18/18 at 7:15 pm
Makes me happy. It’s a scrappy joint doing what it does, without a thought toward decor, endless marketing, or the overly serious attitude so prevalent in so many corporate owned “local” food businesses these days. Plus, the $3.25 bahn mi have the best price to value ratio of any food item in NOLA...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (1)
re: Which is a Better Value - Sam's or Costo? - hungryone on 1/18/18 at 1:35 pm
I have business memberships to both, because each has very low pricing on certain items (or doesn’t carry specific things I use, so I’m forced to go to both). -Costco has cheaper milk and eggs, better quality cheeses and meats, and an overall better selection of produce and packaged goods, beverage...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (1)
