Detroit in small bites

In a week, I'll be heading to Detroit with a few high schoolers as part of my denomination's Youth Gathering. With over 30,000 Lutherans heading to town, my people will be everywhere. However most of our events start after 12 noon, which will leave me and the youth with mornings to kill. What in Downtown Detroit should we see? Where should we eat? What shouldn't two 16 year old guys miss?

Where to stay near Minneapolis airport (MSP) before very-early flight?

Next Thursday I have a 515a flight (on American née US Air, so Terminal 1 is my point of departure) out of MSP. Assuming I'll go through security at around 400-415, it seems silly to stay at a hotel the night before. The airport is open 24 hours. What I'm curious about is if I can I go through security around midnight and try to catch a few ZZZs in the terminal? If not, can I sleep safely outside of security, or will local law enforcement tell me to move along? [more inside]

San Francisco bike riding

I live down in Monterey but I have this Thursday off randomly and I'm thinking of doing the following: Driving up to Ft Funston with my bike, parking at Funston, riding to the Golden Gate Visitor's center, doing the SF Public Library walking tour and then riding back to Funston. Is this an insane idea or doable? [more inside]

Twin Cities for visiting family this July?

My wife & four kids & I will be in St. Paul for a long visit in the middle of July. What should be on our schedule -- both things new in the last few years, and time-tested favorites? I grew up in St. Paul but moved away a long time ago; we bring the kids out in the summer to spend time with family. We haven't been out in a couple of summers, so I want this one to be awesome!

Hotel recommendations in SF for a romantic getaway?

My ladyfriend and I are going to San Francisco for a romantic getaway, and I'm trying to find the perfect hotel. Looking for something in the four star range, more or less. I can't seem to find any consistency in the hotel reviews except for the five-star hotels. Any recommendations? Views aren't necessary and I'm flexible with location, but a clean and comfortable (luxurious?) room is a must. Right now I'm looking at the Palace Hotel and the Argonaut, any thoughts on those?

Help us survive Vegas on Independence Day

Next week I'll find myself, my partner and our respective mothers in Vegas for the Independence Day weekend. Whilst we're all down with a bit of a spin of the wheel, and some slot time, we're less-so pool party and nightclub people. I read a lot which suggests it is basically going to be pandemonium for the weekend. Help a fella out, and show a pair of 30-somethings, with their late 50-something mothers, how to have fun in Vegas during the holiday weekend. Thanks!

Nashville, Friday night on Broadway for the less rowdy

Travelling to Nashville this weekend for the first time. We are seeing a show in the early evening, I think it’ll be done around 9:30. We want to see live music at bar afterwards and are considering hitting the Broadway strip. Difficulty level – amongst our group are some non-drinking 60yr olds who will not be very comfortable with college kid rowdiness. [more inside]

Tips for a first-time music festival attendee?

I've never been to a multi-day music festival, but this fall's Basilica Soundscape in Hudson, NY looks like it might be perfect- the price is right for camping, it's not terribly far away or hard to get to by Amtrak, and it won't interfere with my school schedule. What would experienced festival-goers recommend? Has anyone been to previous Basilica Soundscapes? [more inside]
