Just Shmooze / Best Mustard
« on: October 04, 2018, 11:40:22 PM »
Until you've had a hot dog with these mustards, well, you haven't properly eaten a hot dog. By far and away the best mustards I've ever had.

This should be a much smaller scale raffle than the first. Just live for a few days and lower price points and prize:

Up In The Air / Which Flight Should I Take?
« on: August 07, 2018, 06:53:50 PM »
Positioning flight for Antarctica on Chanuka:

UA option: 60K miles.
UA CLE-EWR 5:31pm-7:09pm B73G First Class
2:46 connection
UA EWR-EZE 9:55pm-10:50am B764 Business Class seat 1D

Or
AA option: 57.5K miles.
AA CLE-MIA 1:45pm-4:43pm RJ145 Coach
6:02 connection
AA MIA-EZE 10:45pm-9:51am 77W Business Class seat 3A

UA Pros:
-WiFi and first class on both flights
-Polaris club kosher wine, food, shower, PJs
-Longer longhaul flight

UA cons:
-Need to light menora in CLE at 4:02pm (Plag hamincha, a b'dieved time but still can light with bracha) and hope there's no traffic in order to make a 5:31pm flight with checked luggage. There is a later flight CLE-EWR if I miss it, but it's an RJ-145 and has a tight connection. Unless there's someway to light in EWR or the Polaris Club daybed room :D
-767 seat
-Arrives into EZE an hour after AA

AA Pros:
-77W seat
-Arrives into EZE an hour before UA
-Can use the connection time to light menora at JJs

AA cons:
-3 hour flight in coach without wifi
-Shorter longhaul flight
-Longer total travel time

I've noticed that Kosherica has several cruises that depart on Wednesday-Friday.

Does the halacha of not boarding a boat from Wednesday-Friday no longer apply on today's cruises?

I let this go up originally and then regretted and removed it.

What are your thoughts on how DDMS comments should or should not be moderated?

Up In The Air / Avoid Spirit YQ At Airport?
« on: February 15, 2018, 12:40:57 PM »
I wrote here how the Spirit PUC is now $39.98, making airport buying savings even bigger:
https://www.dansdeals.com/points-travel/airlines/spirit/spirit-increases-passenger-usage-fee-heres-avoid-fly-chicago-cleveland-detroit-nyc-pittsburgh-los-angeles-60-round-trip/

A commenter pointed out that they now have a YQ charge that also says it's avoidable at the airport, which should mean tickets will be $55 off at the airport.

Anyone have experience with that yet?
