Mumbai Tour Guide recommendations

I'm travelling to Mumbai with my partner later this month and we'd like to hire a tour guide for one or two days. We're pretty seasoned travellers, but we don't have a huge amount of time and in particular, we'd like to check out the street food scene, and the fun 'off-the-beaten-track' stuff (we can do the big sites on our own)!

JFK to the North Fork on a Saturday afternoon?

If I leave the West Coast on an morning nonstop, I'll get into JFK by 3 at the earliest. The last LIRR train to the North Fork leaves Jamaica at 2 on weekends. I'd really like to get to Riverhead, at least, preferably Mattituck, before having to have someone pick me up or getting a Lyft. Help? [more inside]

Driving to Philadelphia from North Carolina

We live in the Northwest corner of NC. We are going to Philadelphia on Thursday. The Google maps route takes us through DC Driving in Charlotte during heavy traffic can be pretty stressful for me. I'm fairly certain DC can be much worse. [more inside]

Where to stay in the Denver/Boulder area?

On a lark, my wife and I booked flights to Denver in June for a week's vacation. We've never even been to the state of Colorado. How should we divide up our time and what towns should we stay? We are into beer and vegetarian restaurants and funky shops and hiking.

Hello Cleveland! Need some trip advice.

Next weekend, my wife and I are visiting Cleveland for a family college graduation. On Monday, after the festivities, we'll have a day to ourselves before a late evening flight home. I'm looking for activity suggestions for the day. We haven't really been there before, so even the obvious is welcome. We like museums, and fine dining, not so much shopping, though a small amount is OK, if there's something not-to-be-missed unique. We will use Uber, most likely, and are staying at the downtown Marriott in the Key Center.

Looking for an address from an old porn movie. San Francisco area

Was watching online the first porn movie I ever saw recently. It's from the 80s. I am reasonably sure this scene is somewhere in or near Potrero in San Francisco because there was a Ray Cicero Realty sign and I found out they were based in Potrero. Wondering if anyone is familiar with the area or has good detective skills. Kind of fascinated about the historical changes. Here are the (very poor quality) screenshots

Polite ways to request strangers not infringe on my plane seat?

I'm a petite woman and fly a lot. Passengers seated next to me very frequently infringe on my space, nearly universally without asking, nearly always men. When I've tried to ask them to stop in a friendly way it hasn't gone well (promoting awkwardness or outright hostility). Help me with some scripts to ask for the seat I paid for? [more inside]

7 Nights in Hong Kong

I'll be in HK from June 1 to 8 with my husband. He will be at a conference for part of the time. Since we just confirmed the trip, we do not have any logistics planned yet. This will be our first time in HK. We are traveling from the US and we have both been to SE Asia before. I looked through some past questions on where to stay and what to eat. Since we will be there for a full week, I am wondering if the lodging recommendations may differ. We would like to be centrally located but I think having a slightly roomier space with easy access to the center would probably suffice. A previous answer said that there isn't really a difference between Air B&B's and hotels. Is that still the case? Our price range would be about $100-150/night. Another question, do you have recommendations on getting local sim cards. We have unlocked iPhones. We are early 30's with no kids. We love spicy foods, street food, flea markets, whiskey, espressos, scenic walks/hikes/bike rides/ferry trips, and trying new makeup & skincare (that one is just me)
