Sleepless in Hong Kong

I have $500, a backpack, and 3 days in Hong Kong, starting Monday, with nothing to do but wait for a visa (which means I ain't leavin'). Aside from standing around the Tsim Sha Tsui 7-11 eating Doritos and browsing the suitcopywatch collections and trolling Wanchai in the vain hopes of meeting someone who isn't a prostitute or looking for one, where are some fun, up-all-night places to go that involve cheap alcohol and good company for a 20-something?

How can I send picture postcards of a city without being in it?

I was in Milan and Zürich for the last two weeks and I had promised to bring back/mail postcards to certain close friends and family. Sadly, I misplaced my package of postcards and didn't get a chance to buy any more. Is there any way to buy scenic picture postcards online or are there any shops that sell such postcards? I live in New York if that helps. Thanks for the anticipated help.

Anniversary in Ensenada

Where should I take my partner for our anniversary in Ensenada, Baja California, Mexico? We're looking at the two-night packages at Las Rosas, but would like suggested alternatives, preferably smaller and more intimate. Also looking for good spa and massage recommendations. If San Felipe is waaay better, please let me know. I researched it online and it looks like a marina and golf courses for American weekenders, which is sort of what we want to avoid. Oh, we're also interested in a day hike, maybe inland in the mountains.

People in the Czech Republic have clean underwear, right?

Later this month, my boyfriend will be going to Prague on business for two weeks. Instead of packing two weeks worth of clean clothes, he'd like to take less and do laundry while he's over there. The big question is how? Are there public laundry facilities there? How do you find them? Specifically, he'll be at the Corinthia Towers Hotel. And, hey, as long as you're here: Got any general travel tips for the area? He travels internationally so there's no "OMG! I'm leaving American soil!" freak-out going on. This just happens to be a place he's never been so: should he get a phrase book, is it relatively easy for foreigners to get around, what should he make time to see, etc?
