What should we do/see in New Orleans?

My wife and I are traveling to New Orleans between June 14th and June 18th for our 1st anniversary. What should we do there? Relevant details: we're both vegetarian, both like jazz and beer and museums, I love funk music, she's into fancy cocktails and cool-looking old buildings. Neither of us have ever been before. Any recommendations for vegetarian restaurants would be especially appreciated.

And She is Looking Forward to Trying Some of this Casual Sex Everyone is Talking About

I am in my mid-twenties and, after being in relationships almost continuously since high school, I am finally single and ready to start dating around. I want to start meeting people and maybe have a few one-night stands, because why not? I am a little unfamiliar with how to meet strangers. The discussion came up with some of my friends about wingmaning. [more inside]

How do you flirt with someone on the other side of a room?

How do you flirt with someone on the other side of a room? Let's say I'm sitting in a bar at a table with some friends and I see a girl sitting with a female friend on the other side of the room who appears to look at me a couple of times. What should I do? Smile? Go over and say hello? Assume she was just looking in my general direction and not at me?

I CAN TAKE ANY ONE OF YOU MOTHERFUCKERS!!! No, wait, I'm just building a cup pyramid.

Australians of Metafilter, I want to hear from you! I've long heard that turning your glass upside down in a bar in Australia is the same as saying you think you could take anyone in the place. For some reason, this idea fascinates me. Is it true? Do people actually do this? What happens when they do? Where did it come from? [more inside]

Where should I drink on my Chicagoland date?

Looking for Chicagoland bars that aren't sad. I live in Lombard, in the Western suburbs of Chicago, and my gentleman friend lives in Hillside, and all the bars around me seem to be for sad people and/or older people. I have a date (well, sort of) coming up, and I want to find bars that are geared towards young 20-somethings that I do not have to take the Metra to get to. [more inside]

How to soundproof when living above a bar

I moved in above a bar. The soundproofing is great, except for the vibrations from the lower bass frequencies. They're using wall-mounted speakers placed pretty close to the ceiling. Is it possible to soundproof against those? And what are some of the things the bar could do to help me? [more inside]

You Help Me Find UFC

I'm going to be in Ellenville, NY tomorrow night, and I'd like to find a nearby bar that's showing UFC 118. The UFC website unsurprisingly has nothing closer than suburban NYC, and I can't figure out any way to craft a search that would get me this information. I can search for local bars and call them... but thought I'd ask here first. Anyone know of a bar near Ellenville showing the fights?

Gimme lobstah!

My gentleman friend and I will be spending the weekend in Boston. We've been before, so we've covered the Newbury stretch and would like to branch out a bit this time. We'd like to eat and drink at some great local places (no chains, please). Neptune Oyster is on our list. What are some of your favorite restaurants and/or bars in Boston and why? (We're staying at a hotel on the Waterfront, but are certainly not limited to that area.) Thanks all!

Where should I have my birthday drinks?

I'm having birthday drinks in a few weeks and am looking for a lower Manhattan bar that tends to attract a crowd of people in their mid-20s and older. I'm not interested in dive bars, extremely upscale bars or bars with DJs/musical acts. Just a relaxed venue for me and my friends to spend a few hours on a Saturday night. Ideally, the bar should be below 14th St. Any suggestions?

Bars on the Upper East Side of Manhattan

NYC filter: Looking for a bar on the Upper East Side (preferably east 80s/90s) which can accomodate a group of ~50-70. My high school class is having its 15th reunion, which will start off at our school and then progress to an after-party at a bar at around 9/9:30pm on a Friday in June. So a private room would work, as would a bigger bar which could simply accomodate a mass influx. Anything from divey to schmancy is a possibility. Thanks!

Upscale but social bar scene for age 30-ish ladies in Manhattan?

My best gal pals and I are heading up to Manhattan for a weekend soon, and we're looking for an excuse to dress to the nines while enjoying a cocktail or two. Whenever we go out as a group, though, we tend to split up and mingle (and, ok, flirt). Of note: we range 31 to 38 in ages, so we're not looking for some barely-legal hipster club scene. What's a good, upscale but sociable, fun but not crazy loud night spot to visit on a Saturday in Manhattan? Does it exist? [more inside]
