My friend has recently moved to Vienna, VA with his family. Family consists of my friend, their spouse and two kids aged three and six. I'd like to send a gift voucher as a housewarming gift. Difficulty: must be available online (maybe GiftRocket?) They are all set for household goods etc, so looking for fun local activities or restaurants they might enjoy as a family. I don't know the area at all so have no good ideas - can you help?
I'd been sick and cooped up in my urban house for a couple of weeks, and need a change of scenery now that I feel better. I desperately want to go overnight camping and day hiking somewhere within 4-5 hours of the SF area. Where can I go that isn't heavily smoke impacted right now? [more inside]
I'd like to play an RPG next week with my 12-year-old kid and their cousin of similar age, that I would GM for them. The ideal game is simple to set up, yet with enough choices to get them a bit invested in their characters, and something where we can complete a satisfying arc in around 3-4 hours but if it turns out we all love it we can keep a campaign going afterward. Milieu is less important than a fun, easy-ish mechanic; we're none of us hardcore RPG-ers. What games can you recommend?
DOT, Jr. came to swimming a little older than his peers. But with some attentive lessons from a local swimming school, he's now solidly average and fully capable in the water. Now he wants to learn to run faster. He wants to know: are there lessons for that? [more inside]
I'm staying in Mayfair, a tube ride of 30 minutes or so is fine. Would enjoy a wide variety of items to peruse, and some interesting food stalls. So far Spitalfields market is looking good, does it have one day better than others? I have 2 weeks in September, one Saturday is already taken. Thanks!!
In Tim Powers' "The Stress of Her Regard", there's a mention of a drug that gives everyone the same hallucination. Is there really such a drug? [more inside]
I'm mostly a shower singer, but get great pleasure from singing, and have experienced a problem with my singing voice my whole life. In the middle-high range, my voice cuts out, and I can't produce any of the notes in that range. [more inside]

Fantasy football sounds like a lot of fun- except I have no interest in football. Are there other ‘fantasy _____’ leagues a person with other interests can join?
I'm thinking of setting up a science-fiction/fantasy group that'll meet up in real life. I'm thinking once a month we'll meet in a local pub and just talk about various sci-fi/fantasy things. And of course I want a cool name, something that'll attract attention on a flyer, but also be inclusive and not so sff that it'll put people off. I was thinking just Mullingar Science Fiction & Fantasy group, but that doesn't really roll off the tongue. [more inside]

I've been re-visiting The Street's first two albums, and he mentions drinking Marlon. I have done some googling, and have found a Marlon cocktail (that sounds disgusting), but I doubt this is what Mike Skinner is referring to. What is it? A brandy (he likes brandy)?
I have flat feet, so I need to wear hard orthotic inserts in my shoes. I make this work well enough with most shoes by removing the liner that comes with them, and replacing them with thin shoe liners (e.g. by Dr. Scholl's) with the orthotics on top. With boots (work/winter/hiking boots), it's a whole different story. I haven't been able to make this work yet, and I hope the hive can help me out here by giving their own experiences (and hopefully success stories) or good ideas and advice. [more inside]
