Snowflake-y recommendations for 24 hours in Lisbon

I'm heading to Lisbon for a conference and basically have this coming Friday at noon til Saturday slightly after noon to myself. I'm into pottery/ceramics and early Japanese-Portuguese encounters (e.g. tempura). How can I maximize my time in Lisbon?

Washington DC Travelfilter: Seeking calm, quiet, cozy gustatation

I'm taking a much-needed short vacation to Washington DC this weekend (I've been describing it to friends and family as "four glorious days during which no one will talk to me."). I'll be alone, which is sort of the whole point. I'm looking for food and drink locations that are especially pleasant for a lone woman with a book to pass some quiet late fall evening hours, around the Foggy Bottom and Georgetown areas (or farther afield if it's really worth it).

Seattle, I hear you have some art.

Simple: I'm heading to Seattle for the first time, and I love art—as in, I'm open to all of it. I'm going to be there for two full weekdays later this month, and my time is my own. I want to see cool stuff I can't see every day in Chicago. What might that be? [more inside]

What's the biggest & best checked luggage I can take around the world?

So I'm heading around the world for three months. I bought a luggage set and it fell apart, luckily, before I got going. So now I'm looking whatever the biggest checked bag is that I can take with me. Ideally it's strong, light, rolls well and isn't black (ideally red or brown). So I can find it on the luggage carousel. What's the right Joe Vs. The Volcano luggage for me?

Travel Better London campaign McBess posters

A few years ago (2014) we took a trip to London and fell in love with the pithy poems of the Travel Better London campaign. I'd love to have one or more to hang in our guest room, but am not able to find any for sale. Ideas?

Christmas concerts in the Old World

Help us find nice Christmas concerts (or just music) in Prague, Cesky Krumlov, Vienna, and Regensburg! While searching for information on where to listen to the great music of the season in these cities, I find that the results are often dwarfed by third-party ticket merchants selling concert tickets for the larger venues. At the same time, doing an exhaustive search church by church sounds, well, exhausting! We need the experience of the Meta-filterettes! [more inside]

Winter bike lights for commuting

Looking for experienced winter bike riders with bike light recommendations: what works for 60 minute commutes (each way) in cold winter temps (down to 0 F / -18 C)? Ideally I'd like front and back lights that are USB-rechargeable, quick-release, 120-min+ runtime, steady & pulse options, and a long lifetime. For the headlight, I need something that's bright enough to illuminate (not just "be seen"). [more inside]
