My wife is hosting a baby shower for a mother-to-be that wants 50 people to be invited (she's even providing the list).

On my street (and others, here in Toronto) workers have cut large circular pieces out of the sidewalk about every 10 feet or so. For several days, the big wheels of cement sat nearby, and the holes were covered up with metal lids. Now the pieces are back in the sidewalk, all patched up with cement filling the gaps. So... what the heck was being done there?

We are going to be driving from Boston to Toronto on a Thursday night and Friday with our five kids (ages 3 to 16). We want to stop somewhere half-way to sleep--ideally a hotel that is not too pricey but still decent and has an indoor pool. Perhaps a good breakfast, or just a decent breakfast. Where should we stay? And in general, if you needed to find a hotel en route from A to B, how would you do that (the second question is WAY less important than the first)?

I take a lot of short business trips and I don't really like hotels that much. I would prefer to stay in an apartment. Does anyone know of a nationwide group which rents apartments for just a few days? Failing that, such a group in Chicago or Toronto would be great.
