New Year's Eve in Denver

My husband and I will be in Denver for New Years Eve, staying at a hotel at the airport. We're not big drinkers or partiers, but we would like to do something to celebrate without staying in the hotel all night. We love exploring new restaurants. Any suggestions for what we shouldn't miss in Denver or any events that might be of interest to us that night? Thanks!

Recommendations near Sheraton Old San Juan

We're cruising out of San Juan on November 1st and will be in San Juan for dinner on October 31st and breakfast on November 1st and are looking for recommendations for some great places to eat near the Sheraton Old San Juan. We would prefer to be able to walk and not take a cab. We like all kinds of food but are always looking to try something we can't get at home when we travel. Thanks!

Good eats in Lawrence, KS?

Biemer's BBQ (in the building that used to be Bucky's Drive-in) at 9th & Iowa has amazing BBQ. It's definitely worth a try.

What not to miss for first time visitor?

I'll be visiting Manhattan with my boyfriend for the first time over an extended Easter weekend (April 10-13) and want to know what I shouldn't miss both food and location-wise. We're staying at the Fitzpatrick Manhattan (687 Lexington Avenue) in Midtown south and east of Central Park. We would prefer to stay in Manhattan because of cost, but we're happy to use the subway, taxis or the bus. We love all things ethnic and aren't afraid to try anything. The more "New York" the better. Thanks so much for any suggestions that you might have!!!

Key West Recommendations for a quick stop

We'll be in Key West for a few hours in late September while on a cruise and we decided not to do a shore excursion there so we could have more time to get a feel for the place. Are there any places we shouldn't miss with great food within walking distance from the port? Thanks!

Fort Lauderdale - Near Best Western Oceanside Inn

We will be in Fort Lauderdale for a couple of days in late September before a cruise and we're staying at the Best Western Oceanside Inn (1180 Seabreeze Blvd.
Fort Lauderdale, FL 33316) without a car. Are there any places within walking distance from this hotel that are worth visiting? We can probably afford to get a cab if it's worth the trip if there's something we absolutely can't miss. Any ideas would be most helpful! Thanks!

The Horror ... Branson

That would be Lamberts. . . great food but definitely a place that they welcome busses.

Good food in Northern Cincinnati (near Blue Ash Business Complex)

I will be traveling to Cincinnati several times over the next few months and would like suggestions on good places to eat in Northern Cincinnati near the Blue Ash Business Complex (Intersection of Reed Hartman Highway and Cornell Rd). I'm from the Kansas City area and would love to try some of the "Best of Cincinnati". Any recommendations would be greatly appreciated! Thanks!

Krause Dining Room, Lawrence KS

Amazing! We ate there for one of their community dinners (fewer courses to try the place out) and were pleasantly surprised. We would definitely go again for special occasions!

Any good sushi recommendations in KC area?

Best sushi I've ever had is at Wa in Lawrence. It's at 8th & Mass in downtown Lawrence next door to Tellers.
