Help me plan 5 hours in San Francisco

I have a long layover in SFO next week just before a very long trans-Pacific flight. Of the time I have there, I have about 5 hours total I can spend in the city (after transport each way). I have two goals: tire out my 1-year-old, and meet up with some friends for drinks and snacks. Can you help me plan where to go for these? [more inside]

food for a picnic at Storm King Art Center (New Windsor, NY)

I'm planning to go to the Storm King Art Center (in New Windsor, NY) on Friday. I'd like to eat something delicious for lunch while I'm there or before I go. I can bring it from Manhattan (or anyplace in the city, I guess), but I would have to buy it the day before on Thanksgiving. Or, I could eat near the museum or near my hotel in Monroe. [more inside]

1 year old, thanksgiving, midwest. Go

I live a couple of hours south of Chicago. Given a 4 hour driving radius, what would be a good place to go with a 14 month toddler? I don't expect her to make any memories from this trip, so it's really more of a trip for her parents (us!) . [more inside]

Christmas Sights and Doin's in Boston

My family will be joining me in the Boston area for Christmas this year, for the first time, for only a few days surrounding the 25th. If we were in NYC, near where I grew up, I'd know exactly what to do - see the windows, Rockefeller Ctr, St. Patrick's, the Grand Central train show...but I don't know what the Boston equivalents of these sightseeing traditions are. One caveat: Boston seems big on performing arts events for the holidays, and we probably aren't going to be able to coordinate schedules for ticketed events. I'm looking for things you can just drop in to. [more inside]

Who Offers Non-Owner Car Insurance in DC?

We are urban homeowners who don't own a car, relying on various car sharing services around town. But we travel, and when we travel we often rent cars. Every time we rent cars, we end up having to pay $15/day for liability insurance. How can we become insured drivers without owning a car? [more inside]

How do I do ticket change with the minimum change fee with AA

I booked a couple tickets from New York City JFK to Columbus Ohio for 11/17 with AA for my parents. I just found out they may be coming from New York to Columbus any day other than 11/17. AA change fee is 200 plus the difference. That's sooooo high on these 280*2 tickets. Any idea of how to change the ticket to get the minimum change fee?? Thank you! Plus, AA never sent me confirmation number via email or phone. I called today to confirm the purchase. Not sure if that's gonna help my case.
