Truck drove into my car door. Any recourse?

A truck backed into my driver's side door as I was getting out to go to the grocery store. His insurance says we're 50-50 at fault. I don't agree, but of course I don't. I have anxiety and don't trust most of my gut reactions to things. Most of the people in my life say "No. The other driver's at fault. Push back." I'm looking for outside opinions. [more inside]

Looking for Union Square Restaurant Ideas

Coming to San Francisco next week for a conference and staying near Union Square. Looking for restaurant ideas for quick breakfasts, hour long lunches, and long lingering dinners within walking distance. I eat everything, and while cheap is good, good is more important. The only other time I've been in the city your recommendations for Bi-Rite and Tartine were spot-on, so let me know where I should go next. [more inside]

Can I buy a reliable, used SUV for around $10,000?

I would like to get a vehicle with high clearance and AWD. I will mainly use it for some around the town errands and weekend trips to get to out of the way trail heads. I have a sedan that I use for commuting. My friend just bought a brand new CRV for about $28,000. I am reluctant to spend so much money for a vehicle that I anticipate to use only sparingly. I am hoping to spend around $10,000 or so, but can spend a few thousands more if needed. So I am looking for advice on which make and model to look for. [more inside]

What's New In Philadelphia?

Travelling to Philadelphia in mid August for a break - I'm a regular visitor but I haven't been in 3 years - what's new in town that I can't miss? I like fine dining, gay bars, unusual museums, vintage or discount menswear, and science/engineering sights/tours. Assume I've done all the major attractions like the Mutter and Eastern State. I have no interest in Founding Fathers stuff. [more inside]

Food/gift ideas to bring to family in Denmark & Sweden?

We'll be visiting cousins and their kids (toddlers thru tweens & a teen) in Denmark and Sweden in August. We're coming from upstate NY. We've got books & comics plus some gross US candy for the kids, but are stumped on anything to bring to the adults. We're packing very light, so small is good. What's novel, or amusing, or tasty that comes from the US and is uncommon in Scandinavia? Extra or alternate kid gift suggestions are also still welcomed!

3 days in Guadeloupe: any tips?

My boyfriend and I are traveling to Guadeloupe Nov 18-21, flying into Pointe-a-Pitre at 6:30pm on the 18th. Any suggestions on where to stay, where to explore, where to eat etc? We're not into fancy B&Bs and resorts, we like DIY adventure (without nonetheless 'roughing it' backpacker style). Budget for housing is $50-75/night. We'll have a car. Thanks for any and all recs!

Nature retreat, for individuals, within 3-4 hours of DC

I would like to spend a long weekend or perhaps full week, in mid to late October, alone or semi-alone in nature. An individual retreat that involves yoga, hiking, meditation and contemplation (and maybe even homesteading activities), but is not overly "woo" or religious, sounds ideal to me. Where can I do this within a (maximum) 3-4 hour drive of DC? [more inside]
