    Can somebody who lives (or is from) the Atlanta area, recommend a good resteraunt for a "Lunch and Learn"? We have a bunch of resellers in that area and need a place to hold a technical training. Would you recommend Buckhead, Midtown , etc. The last time we had one our event planner shit the bed, so I'm taking into my own hands.

    I have never been to Prague, or even Europe for that matter, but I had a buddy go. He raved about that place. He also said he had some really good Italian while he was there too. Ill see if I can find out which place.

    @Lyrtch thanks for the tips. We left Seattle this morning.
    Did pike place both days. Beechers, pike place chowder (my God that was out of this world?, six seven (lawd, that was awesome too), and the city pass which was amazing. Got to do 4 items in the booklet. Did an hour tour of the Sound, glass museum, aquarium, and space needle.


    On our way to gold beach now. Did an hour at cannon beach. Pulled over at a handful of stops on the side of the road to take it all in. This is just unreal. Saw our first whaleS. We pulled over and there the were in all their glory bout 100yds out.


    San fran tmrw!

    While on the coast I got talked into going back to work. I'm coming out of retirement next Monday. I'm only going to stay on long enough to see a few projects through. Only reason I'm doing it is to get my fam to stfu and I get two weeks at the NYC crib without getting bitched at. Going to push me to the extra figure then I'm done again. Always wanted 9 anyway

    Yall. You have to do the road trip! Nothing short of spectacular!

    This is Gold Beach, Oregon. They sand is a mid to dark gray.... With smooth rocks rather than lots of sea shells. For obvious reasons, we got a few for giving 110% this fall!

    Sorry it took me a bit longer to respond but I will offer some help where I can, even though it won't be much. Overall, I highly suggest checking out Old City part of town. Lots of amazing architecture all around. Walking to the main square and seeing the clock town chime is really neat. Also, walking over the bridge to Castle Prague. It's crowded and chaos, but still neat. You can pay to go in the bridge tower on the city side and though a little pricey, it gives a neat view of the bridge and city. I didn't get to spend much time in Castle Prague but we did climb the church tower and you are sitting over the entire city, which is one hell of a view. However, it's a decently intense walk up the steps to it and if either of you are at all claustrophobic then this is not for you at all.

    As far as food and drinks, I don't have any specific suggestions as I was with a local co-worker so she took me everywhere I needed to go. But the drinks were wildly inexpensive (like $1.50 USD for a liter of good pilsner beer) and the food is good and cheap as well. So don't get too turned off by any restaurants without calculating the exchange rate. I took my coworker out to dinner as a thank you to a new, modern Asian cuisine restaurant in the old city area and for 3 drinks, an app, and 2 entrees the meal put me back around $35 USD.

    Any advice on a quick trip to Vegas? Wife wants to see Celine Dion and I want to spend a day at the Grand Canyon.

    Any tour recommendations? Best places to stay? The show is at Cesar's Palace so the closer I am there the better.

    Best ways to book? Any tips or tricks? Novice traveler here...

    Go see Hoover Dam early in the morning before it gets hot (around 8AM). Only 25 minutes from the strip. Stop at The Coffee Cup in Boulder City on the way there for one of the best breakfasts you'll ever eat.

    Upgrade your rental car at the airport. They have a ridiculous selection and they weren't that expensive. I had a Camaro SS convertible for about $40/day, and driving to the Hoover Dam with the top down gave some awesome views.

    Going to St. Lucía for 9 days in the middle of August. Plan on splitting the stay between the north and south of the island and renting a car to get around. Any tips would be appreciated.

    Don't fall off the roads into The sea.

    Grand pitons are cool. Most of the island is 3rd world country. The beer is good. Piton. Good golf courses. 80 and breezy all day and night.

    Was there a couple weekends ago. Van Gogh museum was surprisingly one of my favorite places. Don't do the hop on/hop off shit....you spend more time trying to find the place to pick up the bus and it would be cheaper to just grab a couple of cabs to go from one place to another. You can see the Anne Frank house, but you won't be able to tour. You have to book those tickets well in advance. Overall, Amsterdam wasn't my favorite place. I much more enjoyed the Dutch village "Zaanse Schans" less than a half hour north of Amsterdam with functioning windmills you can go inside of (windmills used to crush things, cut logs, etc.), clog making, etc. https://www.dezaanseschans.nl/en/
