    What are some interesting places to visit around Palm Springs?

    Hitting up the tramway is worth it, it's pretty crazy the difference in temperature a bit of altitude can do. Slightly tangental, but if you're hungry at any point when you're in Palm Springs you should hit up Big Mama's Soul Food http://www.bigdansbbq.com/ I love this place and always go there whenever I'm in the area. Hell, I bring bottles of his sauce back with me to Australia. It's at http://maps.google.com/maps?f=q&source=s_q&hl=en&geocode=&q=Big+Mamas+Soul+Food,+Cathedral+City,+CA,+United+States&sll=-33.867139,151.207114&sspn=0.047108,0.082483&ie=UTF8&hq=Big+Mamas+Soul+Food,&hnear=Cathedral+City,+Riverside,+California&t=h&z=16&iwloc=A about 9 years ago

    Where is the best place for EPIC RIBS in SYD

    Sadly, there is only one place for truly epic ribs in Sydney. Hurricanes http://www.hurricanesgrill.com.au/ I've been on an ongoing search for ribs and other Southern US food in sydney over the past year, leading mostly to disappointment. Hurricanes: Epic serving size of pork babyback ribs, sauce is good and sometimes great, meat is usually tender but is not smoked (sadly). Good value for money given we're in Sydney and the generous serving size. Tony Romas: Smallish serving size, can usually do babybacks or St Louis style spare ribs. The sauces are a bit too overpowering, and there's nothing remarkable about the meat. Value for money is pretty mediocre. Mid $30s for the ribs. South Restaurant: Serves abysmal food. The cooks don't understand the process of cooking ribs, doing things like leaving the membrane on the underside of the rack, so while the meat falls of the bone, it sticks to the membrane, less than pleasent. Sauce is mediocre, and the meat isn't smoked either. Their buffalo wings/coleslaw/pulled pork sandwich/tacoes are also of a similar nature. All 3 options cost around mid $30s, but the difference in what you get is huge. Hurricanes all the way. If you don't want to go to the effort of cooking them yourself, Hurricanes is the only answer. I've resorted to going to hurricanes when I'm lazy, and cooking them myself when I'm not (though you'll need a bottle of Big Dan's BBQ sauce http://www.bigdansbbq.com/ and a smoker of some kind). about 9 years ago

    CO flight from Houston to Buenos Aires. what is best business class seat row and which side?

    Hi Anita, Seatguru shows the rest rooms are only at the front, but the front bulkhead style seats apparently have "some drawbacks". I'm pretty sure that'd be due to high traffic/being too close the the rest rooms, but really, how much traffic are you going to get with each restroom serving about 12 people? I'd personally just go one of the front few rows. http://www.seatguru.com/airlines/Continental_Airlines/Continental_Airlines_Boeing_767-200.php Either side is going to have some spectacular scenery on the flight down. I'd bring up google maps and choose which countries/side of the plane would interest you more. http://maps.google.com/maps?f=q&source=s_q&hl=en&geocode=&q=houston+to+buenos+aires&sll=-33.867139,151.207114&sspn=0.066493,0.132093&ie=UTF8&ll=-5.965754,-72.685547&spn=75.487381,135.263672&z=4 over 9 years ago

    medication have to be in its original packaging to travel to usa

    My doctor originally told me that I needed to have the prescription labeling & original packaging when I travelled into the USA (with just some anti-biotics). Customs never really looked or cared though. I'd generally err on the paranoid side though if it's important medication though and just break it up after you get there. I wouldn't want to have to try and get replacements upon arrival if they confiscated them. over 9 years ago
