I'm looking for a place to watch Game of Thrones tomorrow night in New York, preferably Manhattan (or near a subway/bus that will actually be running), somewhere relaxed with drinks that are NY reasonable to cheap. Any suggestions?
My friend who lives in Toronto and I in the U.S. have a longstanding annual tradition of watching the Derby together while chatting online. However, this year there is a snag - she recently gave up cable, which is how she was previously watching it, to help with the household budget. I'm trying to find a way for her to watch online.

I want to ride around on my bicycle this summer, with two phones mounted on the handle bars (or somewhere I can easily view them) that can keep the phones dry for a few minutes and have a way to keep the phones cool in the southern heat. What do you suggest? [more inside]
I've been sewing more and more garments for myself lately, but I'm having trouble finding patterns that I like. I know about the more well-known, big pattern companies out there, but a lot of them don't really suit my style. I've had more luck with independent designers recently and I want to find more!

I have three months full time in the pottery studio coming soon, and I welcome your help in developing a syllabus (as it were) of goals/projects to take my pottery game to a more advanced level! [more inside]
I would like to replay the entire Halo series, once, with my husband on our local system. We don't have an xbox (but we do have a good gaming PC). It's been years since I paid attention to anything xbox or the world of halo. Can you please advise me the best way to get the hardware and software I need to make this happen? (Renting is acceptable if that is still a thing, so is emulating if it actually works).
Where can I get a firmware update/battery reset for my Faraday pedal-assist bike in New York City? There seems to be one dealer that services ebikes but they have a long waiting list for service. [more inside]
I’d like to find a group to play D&D (or other RPG) with in the northern part of Seattle! Seattle folks, any tips for a transplant on how to find a new gaming group around here? [more inside]
I've got a photo exhibit coming up. Nothing major, the walls of a local coffee shop. But you know, I want it to look good. What are my options for ordering affordable prints online, hopefully with a matte option? Everything from 8X10 to 20X30. [more inside]
At last year's academic conference a small group of friends played BattleDecks /PowerPoint karaoke and had the best time ever. We'd like to play again. I'm soliciting great slides for this. [more inside]
I'm looking for fun activities for that a 7-year-old - with very limited range of motion of her upper body - can play with an 8-year-old who has complete mobility. [more inside]
Can you recommend an iOS app (10.3.3 max) that allows you to record your location in the most rapid, direct, and idiotproof way possible? Something like a button that takes up most of the screen that you just tap once and done. It needs to save the location as lat/long coordinates. Ideally, it would have an option for displaying the recorded location in degrees and decimal minutes, but any of the degree-based notations would be acceptable.
I have been into Tiki Culture for the past several years, I even have a Tiki Bar in my house! Yet... when trying to create ideas for an annual party (as in 50-100 adults), I'm a little overwhelmed about what to do without it coming out tacky yet... I don't want to spend a fortune. I love coming to Metafilter for ideas, so any tiki-heads or party planners or just general advice is greatly appreciated. [more inside]
So, this time last year, I was embarking on what would become a 9-month streak of practicing piano really consistently 6 days a week at a very low intensity of practice session length (~15 minutes). I was doing well at being consistent and sort of letting that be its own reward, but not making a lot of progress. There were some life changes, my income went up, I moved, and I got a teacher! And now that I have an external force of motivation, I... somehow cannot practice to save my life? [more inside]

If you were injured in an NCAA tournament and received onsite X-rays (!?), who’s paying for that? The player’s health insurance? Is it in-network or out? Do teams have a separate insurance policy? The tournament? Is the player out co-pays or deductibles? What happens with a serious injury that requires hospitalization? I’m watching basketball and SO curious.
My wife is in the market for a new bike, and is leaning towards a comfort bicycle. Any brand or model recommendations? [more inside]
