Fun places to stay in Brooklyn near the Q train?

I'm going to a wedding in New York City next month. I'm hoping to persuade my spouse to come, too; maybe I can even convince him that the city is not wall-to-wall skyscrapers. Is there a neat place in Brooklyn we should stay? The special requirement is that I want to be able to see friends who live pretty far south along the Q line (think Brighton Beach), so a neighborhood like Williamsburg is probably out. [more inside]

Seattle-adjacent anniversary "weekend"

We have next Monday and Tuesday free for our anniversary and are looking for a last-minute overnight outing in or near Seattle (less than 1 hour or so away). Ideally the trip includes at least some of the following: great food including a possibly slightly fancy dinner, a swanky or at least interesting place to stay, water views, bookstores, light to moderate outdoorsiness, strange museums or art, low-key adventure. It need not include Hallmark-card-style "romance." It MUST include at least one really kickass sandwich. [more inside]

Resources for scooter accessibility in NYC

Someone I know is moving closer to NYC soon and is looking for information about how to best navigate the city. She is confined to a scooter and has extremely limited mobility. What resources can I give her? This would be more for periodic visits, not day-to-day commuting. I already know about the MTA's homepage for accessibility and the Mayor's Office for People with Disabilities. What else is there? [more inside]

Hip, Hip Hooray, for Christmas Vacation

Our family rarely takes vacations, and even then, just to visit family, or at best, to a nearby lake. But big leaps forward in our careers have us thinking it's time to finally treat ourselves. We're thinking of taking the kid to Vegas for Christmas and rolling out, if not all the stops, many more than we've customarily been able/willing to afford. Give us tips for Vegas in general, Vegas for families, Vegas at the holidays, and small and medium things we can do to feel like high rollers. [more inside]

suggestions for a solo afternoon in Seattle?

I will be a woman of leisure later this week with a free afternoon in Seattle. I haven't been there in over 5 years - is there anything new that I should see or do, downtown-ish? Bonus points if it gets me near a Top Pot Donut location. I'll be light railing from the airport and need to eventually make it downtown or to Capitol Hill by dinner time.

Recommendation for car detailing service to deal w/ swirl marks on hood

Recently bought a used 2013 car, black in color. It has a lot of cleaning/swirl marks, especially on the hood (no doubt from repeated sub-par cleaning by the previous owner). Can people recommend a service or shop that knows what to do to remove the micro scratches or at least improve this condition, and can do it well, at a reasonable price, in the Los Angeles area (preferrably either City of Industry, Hacienda Heights, or Pasadena)?

Vegan eats and stuff to do in Milwaukee

I'm going to be in Milwaukee tomorrow until I head out on a late afternoon flight. Anywhere easily accessible by public transit from downtown that is recommended for vegan breakfast/lunch/brunch? Art, bookstores, parks, or other things to do in the immediate vicinity would be a big plus, too. Thanks!
