West-ward ho?

My partner and I are considering a move to Seattle from NYC and taking a brief trip there (arriving Saturday and leaving Tuesday) to discern how we'd like it. I've only been to Seattle once, years ago for just a few days. I'm rather attached to New York living, but want to keep an open mind. Any advice on how to most efficiently ascertain how we'd like living there? Sights to see? Factors to consider? [more inside]

Help me find an ENT

I need help finding an ENT physician in the NYC area. I continue getting ear infections and it's about time I see a specialist instead of my primary care physician. I don't have insurance and currently working a part-time, so if you can recommend me one that won't charge me over $200 for a first time visit I would greatly appreciate it.

What to do in Baltimore (Inner Harbor) in late September?

I am looking for things to do that are unique to Baltimore, preferably walking distance (or public transportation accessible) from the Inner Harbor area. I like weird, kitschy, gothic, silly stuff.

Visiting during Ramadan...good idea?

I am thinking of visiting a friend for 2-3 days during the month of Ramadan. My friend may or may not fast this time. Is it bad manners to visit during this time? What are the things that I should and shouldn't do while I am there, if I decide to go? (And no, visiting any other time of the year or the next year may be out of the question. We are meeting after 17 years) Should I bring something over with me? (I will be flying there) Thanks all!

How can I turn my unstable friend who wants to visit me down? [Redux]

So, good news and bad news about my codependent conundrum. The good news is that I've grown a backbone and I'm now willing to tell my mentally ill friend "no" about coming to visit right now. The bad news is that I've been waffling for so long, and at such a cost to his mental health, that things have gotten more complicated. I want to know: am I morally obligated to let him come at this point, and if not, what kind of excuse/explanaton can I use to let him down easy? (Really long.) [more inside]
