Spot on, although the prostitution didn't come into play the last time I was there.......unless you count the several rounds of drinks that I bought........

Fisher Island

Have to be in Miami for wife's work and wanted to add on a nice weekend.

Has anyone been to the Fisher Island Resort? Looks more relaxing than being right in the middle of South Beach.

While we are at it...

Does anyone have any thoughts on places to stay in Greensboro NC?

Disneyland

Of the various packagers of Disney deals, Disney.com, Alaska Air kids fly free, expedia, costco etc etc et al. is one any better than the other, i.e. cheaper for what is essentially a fungible vacation package?!?!?!?

I should have said in my roundup: I welcome any additions or subtractions. We don't get to go tasting very often these days and both Napa and Sonoma have seen a huge influx of tasting room money in the past 10 years, so I'm a bit out of date.

I thank Less's date (and by association less) for this recommendation.
