I am trying to compare several New England cities to help my employer decide where to re-locate his business. Most of the categories are quantitative and no trouble to research, but I am also trying to find a way to rate these more qualitative features: culture/entertainment/nightlife that would appeal to recent college graduates starting a career in marketing research; tax breaks, grant and other government incentives available to a business providing professional services. Any suggestions on how to shape a couple of hours of research time on each category that might result in a fairly simple apples-to-apples rating across 7 different localities would be really helpful.
I'm wondering if anyone has suggestions for where to stay in El Paso. My colleague and I will be there for work and would like to stay somewhere where we can walk out of the hotel and find some good options. [more inside]
I will be doing a photo shoot for my men's surfwear line Friday night. Nightlife theme of "Surfing the Lights of the City" I am looking for some good spots for the shoot with great well lit. backdrops. Either of the city or streetlife. Public spots or rooftops would be great. Some suggestions given by friends include the Arclight Theatre, old apartment rooftops in Franklin Village near Hollywood and roof tops downtown. Any suggestions???

My family is going on vacation to New York in june for 9 days. We want to find a nice apartment in airbnb, but we have no clue on what would be an appropiate neighbourhood. My parents are over 60, don't speak the language, and want to do all the tourist-y things, so location is very important. My brothers and I are laid back and want to enjoy city life so we are looking for a neighbourhood with interesting things to do. [more inside]

I will be in Norway (Oslo & Bergen) for 5 days in mid-May. I've found lots of great threads about what to do during the day, but what about nightlife? I'm having trouble finding solid restaurant/bar recommendations, along with music venues/dancing. MeFi, where do the hip kids hang?

I want to go out dancing/clubbing in Los Angeles, but none of my friends are interested. Where can a 24 year old girl go dancing at night, and walk back alone to her car without much worry? Also, other than randomly walking up to people and awkwardly trying to nudge my way into their circle, how on earth do I expand my horizons and meet/make friends with similarly minded people?
How and where does a chick in her late twenties meet guys in Los Angeles? I'm single for the first time in eons, and I'm just starting to come out of my shy shell, too. I'm looking forward to the casual dating scene, except I'm clueless as to where to go (and what to do)! I *don't* want to try anything internet-related (not even meetups) this time. The internet's always been a crutch for me, and I want to overcome that. I will sometimes be with other friends, but sometimes I'm going to be on my own. Which I'm excited about! ...but a total n00b. Help me figure out where to go and how to attract some attention without desperately clinging to a friend's arm. [more inside]

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]
Can anyone recommend good clubs in Japan (especially Tokyo) that play music that would appeal to your typical Pitchfork reader? I'm thinking along the lines of indie electro/pop/rock music, a bit of hip hop in there, and maybe some older favourites.
