Reverse Flight Bump

So we booked a flight from San Jose, CA to Washington DC for a friend's wedding this April with Frontier Air. We just got an email from Frontier saying that the first leg of our trip (San Jose to Denver) was rescheduled up by 24 hours. This means we need to take an extra day off work to sit in Denver's airport over night, which is not awesome. They don't seem to be very interested in finding us an alternate or much compensation. What can we do? [more inside]

Adult Fun In Downtown Orlando

Mrs Ashtray Elvis and myself have some time to spend in Downtown ourselves. We need a place to stay, cool paces to eat and stuff to do. We have 48 hours, no car and would preferably like to walk where possible but are open to stuff further afield. There seems to be some information out there but most centers around the theme parks.

Safely eating in Korea and Japan with seafood allergies

I am super allergic to seafood as far as allergy testing has shown. I'm in the US and avoid it religiously, with yet to get a reaction. (Thankfully!) Let's just say it's probably epi-pen bad. I'm planning to travel to Korea and Japan in a year. I went to Korea for a month and was okay. I mostly ate rice, meat and desserts. I want to know if anyone with similar allergies and travel experiences have tips to stay safe. Locals who know about Japanese or Korean food would be appreciated too. [more inside]

Has anyone used a Boosted Board or similar?

Caveat, never skated and this is in NYC. I want to use it for commutes and going those extra three blocks. I almost bought a hover board but those seem to have been a gimmick.
