So I'm 6 hours into my 4 month stay in San Francisco and I need recommendations for places to while away the hours. I'm staying in Nob Hill. Can anyone recommend low-key (and inexpensive) pubs, restaurants, etc that are easily accessible from here? FWIW, I moved here from Carroll Gardens/Boerum Hill in Brooklyn - so that's the kind of environment I'm accustomed to. Many thanks!

What are the best soul food/creole restaurants in New Orleans? I'm not looking for fancy restaurants, but rather places where anyone can afford to eat and the food can't be beat. (asking anonymously for surprise reasons)

I want to buy two gift certificates for restaurants in North Port or Port Charlotte Florida area. One for a wonderful fine dining experience and the other for the best pizza.
Suggestions? Thanks in advance.

If you are a waitress, can you deduct from your taxes the amount that your restaurant requires you to tip-out to your bussers? (In my case, this generally amounts to $8-$15 for every shift I work.) [more inside]

I am hunting for two specific restaurants in Denver and Centennial, both based on vague clues from well-intentioned acquaintances.
1: Someone said not to miss a "Mexican Jazz place"? Not Casa Bonita, I think.
2. Around I-25 in Centennial(?): Something pronounced "Ruby Doo's", though I suspect it's something like Rubidoux? [more inside]

Can anyone recommend a good restaurant/sports bar in the Pioneer Valley (Western MA) area to watch tomorrow's Red Sox home opener? Preferably a place with many TVs, good food, and not too too many undergraduate students?

I have a 30th birthday coming up in NYC and I'm trying to think of some fun restaurants, places to go (i.e. bowling, paintball, karaoke), and or things to do.
I'd like for a group of us to be able to eat and do something (like bowl) at the same time then we'd all go out to a bar afterward.
Anyone have any fun restaurant or party place suggestions in NYC?
btw, not interested in bowling or karaoke suggestions

Give me your best mid range to upscale restaurant in Charlotte, either Uptown or accessible by the new Light rail.
Atmosphere (three late 20s professionals going, so not romantic), crowd, great, interesting food are the criteria. Probably looking something 'hip' and loud.

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.

My friend and I are going to see Robyn Hitchcock at the Old Town School of Folk Music in Chicago tomorrow night, and I'm looking for recommendations for restaurants near the venue (4544 N. Lincoln ave
). We're up for all sorts of food, nothing too cheap but nothing godawful expensive either. With those amazingly broad guidelines, does anyone have any favorite eateries in that area?

My wife and I are meeting my sister for dinner tomorrow in Myrtle Beach. She is coming from Texas, and I would like to find something that might be a bit unique for her. We would like to keep it at 20 or less for entrees. Sandwich places and seafood buffets are okay, too. Any suggestions?

I'm going to be in Vienna from September 26 (early morning) - 29 (afternoon). I'm 18 years old and will be traveling with friends. What should we do/ see?
I've been put in charge of figuring all this out, but apart from the obvious tourist things I don't know what's good. I guess I'm looking for more off-the-beaten-path stuff.
Thank you! [more inside]

Ever notice the fish tanks with koi carp near the entrance in many Chinese restaurants? A friend told me that they are actually there to indicate (perhaps through the number or type of fish?) whether the restaurant owner has paid up to the local Chinese mafia (triad). Is there any truth to this or is it just another urban legend?
