    Best pub in San Francisco

    Toronado is my top pick for pubs in San Fran and its right in the middle of Haight. Awesome beer selection, good music and you can get take away from any of the surrounding shops to eat the the bar (the pizza shop next door is good at about 1am). http://www.toronado.com/ over 7 years ago

    Where are the best Vietnamese restaurants in Sydney?

    I went to Xage last week and thought it would good. Not really authentic, it was more of a modern take - but the salads were delicious! http://www.xage.com.au/ The most authentic I have ever found is in Marrickville just as you come out of the train station. I cant remember the name of it, so id head towards the one over flowing with people. over 7 years ago

    What are the best summer music festivals in Europe?

    I went to Glastonbury in 2008 and was blown away. Hire a van, take a sleeping bag and an extra pair of socks and you'll have the time of your life! I arrived in the UK 2 days prior and realised Black Mountain were playing so nothing was stopping me from getting there! Highly recommended. Another 2 I'd love to check out if (and when :) I get the chance - Roskilde Festival, Denmark and Melt in Germany. over 8 years ago

    Options for a short break (3-4 days) from Dubai?

    Hey - while staying in Dubai, I went to Oman for a long weekend and it was the perfect short break. Only an hour’s flight from Abu Dhabi and you're in total paradise! I’m not sure what kind of things you like to do on short breaks, but Oman was the first place I went scuba diving and it was incredible! Also, there were so many beautiful restaurants to choose from and you will be overwhelmed by the beautiful (and completely empty) sandy beaches. If partying is your thing then I’d probably give it a miss, but if you like turtles, dune exploring and trekking at any scale then I highly recommend it. Hope this helps Kate over 8 years ago

    Want to reserve a table in Munich but do not want to reserve a whole table - how can 4 of us do that for Sept 26 this year?

    Hey Will, Is this for the opening weekend of Oktoberfest? The best thing to do is contact each beer tent (I think there are about 34) directly for reservations. The tables are HUGE so you dont need to reserve an entire one. Phone numbers: http://gogermany.about.com/od/oktoberfestinmunich/tp/oktoberfest_beer_tents.htm You can also fill in an online booking form on the official website, although ive heard its more difficult to get a response http://gogermany.about.com/od/oktoberfestinmunich/tp/oktoberfest_beer_tents.htm I've never reserved a table, just arrived early and been lucky enough to get a seat each day! The last time I was there for opening weekend, we arrived at the halls no later than opening (9am) and didnt have a problem if we stayed in the same beer hall for the whole day. Viel Spass!

    I need help finding cheap accommodation in melbourne australia.

    Hey Hunter, Gumtree and Domain Melbourne are good places to start when looking for a flat share. I’ve used Gumtree to find 3 places and have advertsited on Domain in the past. You just have to set aside a few days to check out a couple of different houses and make appointments with the housemates, it’s also a good way to explore different areas when you're new to the area. Flat shares in the Melbourne city are pretty competitive, so make sure you give yourself a few weeks and maybe book into a hostel in the mean time.
