What to do with a few weekdays in Los Angeles?

We'll be in L.A. for 2-3 weekdays in mid-March, and while one of our evenings is scheduled, we have no idea what to do with the rest of our time. We'll be staying in or near Hollywood, and won't have a car, but don't mind taking transit. We're especially looking for suggestions for one really very nice, splurge-y place for dinner, as well as great inexpensive places to eat. Also interested in: coffee-snob coffee; fancy cocktails; craft beer; fun/interesting/unique places to shop; anything else that seems interesting. We also really like live shows (comedy/improv/podcast/music), but most of the L.A. shows we know about are on the weekend. And I'm planning to go to Jenette Bras for a fitting, but I'd love suggestions for any other bra shops that carry sizes in the G+ range.

Is there a large shopping/strolling/dining area in Minneapolis-St. Paul?

Visiting the Twin Cities in a few weeks with my girlfriend. She'd like to check out some walkable shopping districts with a vibrant, dense mix of stores and places to eat. But does this exist on a somewhat-large scale? [more inside]

Things to Do in Napa that I Haven't Already Done?

I've got an extra day and a half in Yountville/Napa Valley this weekend; what should I do? Bonus if it's not wine tasting--or at least not the wine tastings I've already done a dozen times. [more inside]

My idea of just giving everyone beanbags was ignored.

What kind of table do I want and where can I get it? We've been unhappy with our dining table for some time now, it's too big (tall), it scratches easy, and seems to require near constant care because it's also serving as two people's work table. I'm looking for a small informal table that can work easily as a dining table and a work desk. Is there a name for the kind of table I want and where can I find it in the NYC area. Details follow.

Surviving the week in Birmingham

My partner and I will be visiting family near Birmingham, AL for just over a week. What should we see, eat, drink, and do? Where can we find the essentials like good coffee and cocktails? We've got reservations at Highlands Bar & Grill one night, but that's the only plan so far. [more inside]

Where to eat & what to do in PGH

I'm going to be visiting Pittsburgh this weekend with four friends, staying downtown (I think City Center is the correct term?) near the Mellon Arena. We're already planning on visiting the Church Brew Works on Friday and seeing a Pirates game on Saturday. What can you recommend in terms of places to go and great eating options within walking distance of downtown/PNC Bank park? Two of us are vegetarians, and we're into cool record stores, bike shops, pubs, brunches, great independent restaurants and shops, and things unique to the city.

Traveling to Santa Fe, 2 Gay Men, 2 Crazy Housewives

I'm going to Santa Fe, NM in late March. Where are the ski opportunities for dabblers? Where are some cool places to hang out, where locals visit. What's the hottest place to eat without paying an arm and leg? What else might be worth doing other than the O'keefe Museum. Links would be cool if it's not too much trouble. [more inside]
