Re: South Florida Master Thread
Howdy. I'm planning my first trip to S. FL with the wife and baby next week Sunday through Thursday. Looking for a hotel for around $250 a night. We're traveling in and out of Ft Lauderdale and as of now are planning on renting a car. There is a staggering amount of hotel choices, and so many of them look nice online and have wildly conflicting reviews, so I thought to turn to you more experienced travelers on the forums for guidance. Factors that are important to me are, in descending order:
1- clean and nice feeling
Much less important are
2- location. We like to walk and would like to walk to the beach,  and we like to walk to eat too. We're more into lunch than dinner. And, we keep kosher.
3-pool and other amenities in the hotel. We don't plan on spending g all that much time there other than in the evening, but if the grounds are pretty that's always nice.

Thanks very much for helping us out with this last minute trip!
Residence inn is not on the beach but clean and nice Suites across the street

Re: South Florida Master Thread 2019 TR

Transportation:
Like last year we didn't rent a car lyfting was and is a breeze
Average Paid per mile: $1.03 (after $20 free with T-Mobile Tuesday...)

Lodging:
Grand Beach Bay Harbour
Average nightly rate after all taxes and fees $254.17
Location wise we liked it very much although it is not on the beach we really enjoyed walking to and from the hotel each and every time, obviously it depends on your preference, Hotel is fairly new, expect everything to be Ikea style (modern, just OK quality...) was also clean, we did not deal much with the staff but they never seemed too friendly, customer service by phone or email is non existent rooms are spacious, we had a nice Bay view and our room had two showers... if we return to the area and find something affordable and convenient elsewhere we would certainly try it.

Shul:
The Shul - Chabad of Bal harbour, very nice place, beautiful mikvah, coffee and snacks multiple minyunim shachris till like 11 lacks more options for mincha+marriv

Chai Wok (was delivered from the NMB location)
We ordered via UberEats on arrival since we would otherwise arrive too late they dropped it off at hotel reception since we were not there yet, we got
- Beef & Pastrami Eggrollls (little to no meat in there)
- Dragon Roll
- Godzilla Roll
- California Roll
- Chicken Dumplings
- Edamame Salad
Sushi rolls were like supermarket grade (bear in mind we ate 2am after it was delivered around 10 which may have a serious effect...)
Average check $29.50

Kosh
For our first night we had dinner at KOSH, we took @jj1000 recommendation for the
- Korean beef which was amazing
- NY mushroom steak
- Rib eye
- salad
- Chocolate souffle
- everything was exceptionally delicious
Average Check $107.95

Cafe Vert
Delicious breakfast, French and American style, we ate here twice, we had
- Cheese omelete
- Caprese sandwich
- Pizza crepe
- Croque monseiur
Delicious and tasty
Average Check pp: $30.56


BACKYARD BBQ
Was not as overcrowded as last year and we opted to dine outside, they also had stock of 99% of the menu, we had
- Burnt ends (was substantially better on night 2, night 1 was likely a damage)
- Brisket poutine OK
- Ceasar salad
- Dino ribs mouth watering
- Frozen strawberry lemonade
- Unfortunately (or fortunately??) we got no room for desert
Average check pp: $59.16

Cine Citta Cafe
Quiet place for lunch, we had
- Vegetariana Pizza, ironically the waitress tells us it's a pie but it's for 1 person... I'm afraid the owner is heavily invested in weight watchers...
-Eggplant al Parmigiana
-Tuna Panini
This place offers very generous portions
Average check pp: $36.10

The Carrot
We stocked up on take out for our flight home
-Chicken salad
-Tuna wrap
-Strawberry passion smoothie
Average check pp: $18

BON CHOCOLATIER
(Opposite The Grand Beach Bay Harbour)
We tasted some of their delicious chocolate (@jj1000 hazelnut bomb is addictive...)
And we got a few of the creative Truffles Boxes to gift to the babysitters back home


PICTURES TO FOLLOW

My Surfside TR/Ratings (not really gonna give scores, feel free to ask for details that interests you):

Transportation:
Glad i didn't rent a car ride sharing was cheap and a breeze lyft was always cheaper, when there was surge pricing I just kept on trying after 5 minutes it was back to normal (and then right away back to surge...)
Average Paid per mile: $1.60

Lodging:
Marriott Residence Inn Surfside
Average nightly rate after all taxes and fees $228.75
Great location, brand new hotel, extremely nice staff, beautiful suites with option to link several together, definitely good for large families obviously lacks ocean view and even just a plain balcony, or better a window we can open.... If I wouldn't of kept Kosher the free breakfast would definitely be a awesome benefit, still I would look for something with a porch/balcony next time.

Shul:
The Shul - Chabad of Bal harbour, very nice place, beautiful mikvah, coffee and snacks multiple minyunim shachris till like 11 lacks more options for mincha+marriv

26 SUSHI TAPAS
We ordered via Eat24 on arrival since we would otherwise arrive too late they dropped it off at hotel reception since we were not there yet, good sushi nothing compared to what i'm used to at yakimono, same with fries, Miso soup was delicious.
Average check $27.25

BACKYARD BBQ
Reservations means you'll still wait for a table, service wasn't the fastest it's overcrowded like crazy by 8pm they were out of most items on the smoker menu, I wanted to try the Dino ribs and Sous vide but they were out on both nights I tried, smoked brisket, lamb ribs were delicious, Pulled smoked beef was a little too sweet for me, chicken poppers are great nothing special, desserts we got Grandma Dot's lemon bar trifle & Smores de creme they were way too sweet too ;)
Average check: $52.33

Cafe Vert
Delicious breakfast, cannot compare to Delice LA but not disappointed at all, their smoothie machine was broken so limited drink options
Average Check: $24

The Carrot
Delicious healthy menu we had the BAKED CHICKEN BREAST & BARBECUE CHICKEN BREAST platters, huge salads, and mouth watering smoothies
Average check: $40

B&H Pizza Typical pizza store...
Average check: $21

Re: Is it safe flying with Turkish Air It's as safe as LHR, but you gotta know yourself (and your family) if you/they are going to be paranoid and shiver to death on every turban don't do it, it's not a matter of facts it's your feelings

Re: Powerful story of brave chabad rav, victim of sexual abuse The response on the forums is amazing, on other platforms stories like this always get negative comments, it feels good to be around like minded people, what this Rabbi did is truly a public service hopefully #MeToo will pick up in our crowds so that #MeToo should become obsolete
