Should I tag along for a trip to Long Beach?

Hubby is going to a conference March 30th - April 3rd at the Westin Long Beach. Should I tag along? We'd just have to pay for my airfare and petsitting, so maybe $500 which is definitely affordable for us. It seems like a good opportunity to get some west coast time (we live in Philly), but any place with Beach in the name sounds good right now...I'm afraid this cold, snowy winter will never end! Is there enough to do while Mr. jshort is at the conference all day? If I go, what should I do? Where should I/we eat? What will the weather be like? [more inside]

Does anyone have access to maritime fleet tracking databases?

I am trying to find out the name of a vessel that arrived at the Port of Long Beach from the Philippines on September 9, 2013, carrying a shipment of bananas (see details pasted below). Does anyone have access to any of the databases that might supply this info? It was possibly a Dole-owned/operated vessel, but even a list of all the arrivals at Long Beach (maybe narrowed to arrivals from the Phlippines or the specific departure port, again below) would be a good start.

Visual Communication is close enough to Graphic Design, right?

I want to be a web designer. Am I making a big mistake trying to transfer from community college into San Francisco State's Visual Communication Design major rather than Cal State Long Beach's Art with an Option in Graphic Design or San José State's Graphic Design BFA? I currently live in southern California (Long Beach, to be specific), but want to get away. [more inside]

the long road to long beach

Road-Trip-Restaurant-Recommendation-Filter: My wife and I will be traveling from Oakland, CA to Long Beach, CA this Saturday. We plan on leaving kind of early and taking our time. My wife is pregnant so we anticipate a lot of bathroom stops. We'll be taking I-5 for most of the trip. My family lives in the Central Valley so I'm familiar with the first part of the trip, but anything on I-5 south of Harris Ranch is new to me. [more inside]

Best florist in Long Beach, CA?

I'm on the east coast and I want to send flowers to a lady I really, really, really (did I mention "really"?) like in Long Beach, CA. Is there a great local florist that the hive mind could suggest? I suspect that a local shop could make something nicer than the national brands (FTD or 1-800-flowers). [more inside]
