Vegas FoodFilter Emergency:
BF and I are in Vegas for a confrence and the entire place is giving him a massive stress headache. Any ideas on quiet, off-strip places to eat/recover? Let's say we're going to see Penn & Teller tonight at 9. (we are) Where can we eat afterwards/before that is not crowded, within walking distance, and not super expensive?
Restrictions and example below [more inside]

What's your favourite place in Paris to idle time away ordering cafe cremes and working through a giant book? Chill and economical is the combination for which I seek. I'm up in Montmartre, but don't mind hitting the metro for somewhere rad.

Is there a "sweet spot" for airfares to Europe? I'd like to take a trip to Paris in April; right now nonstop fares are at about 800-1000 USD. Any chance they'll go down in February? What's the trend on this?

I'm planning on moving to Paris a few months for work and pleasure. As a native Swede and a member of the EU group of states, I guess I'll have an easier time getting a somewhat reasonably priced apartment reasonably close to Cité, Montmartre or what have you (Notre Dame I guess would be the center point everything revolves around). Has the Hive got any good suggestions regarding apartment-finding?
Other tips on good areas to live, areas to avoid, would be great as a general guide. [more inside]

We'll be in Paris for 3 days around New Year's Eve, so I am looking for 3 restaurants reasonably priced (around 30 euros). Our hotel is in Le Marais. We enjoy no frills fresh produce simply cooked with flair.

I'll be in Paris for a few days next month, and I'd like to check out some thrift stores. I'm not looking for anything fancy or designer, just maybe some cute skirts or sweaters. Most of the articles I've seen online talk about places where you can get couture for a fraction of the price, but that's not really my thing. Also, this might be silly, but I'm a size 8 US...would resale shops have things in my size? Any advice that can point me in the right direction is greatly appreciated!

My girlfriend and I are travelling from London to Paris with a very early 5.25 train. We will arrive in Paris around 8, and I'm sure we would appreciate going straight to a very nice cafe or similar from a nice, long breakfast. Can you recommend such a place? We like sweet and savoury things, but prefer baguette, croissants and jams type of place. We're looking for something a bit more upmarket than normal cafes, but nothing which would cost more than 15 euros per head...

Who was the Ur-Paris? Who were the Paris Hiltons of yesteryear? Whenever I find myself in conversation with people-who-think-they're-smarter-than-everyone, I know that I will soon be subjected to a rant about how we now live in the most facile of times, obsessed with celebrities like Paris Hilton. I'd like to hear arguments for the opposing view: that this is nothing new, that, throughout history, it has always been human nature to be interested in the lives of certain people... [more inside]

In Paris for four days. Riding the Metro in the center city, not out to the burbs, probably four boardings per day max. What kind of ticket? Per-ride? Daily? Weekly? Some other special ticket I don't know about?
