DDF DO Board / Airport Lounge DOs
« on: March 31, 2015, 01:02:57 PM »
Saw a similar thread in FT; post here if you're willing to guest some people into a lounge OR if you are looking for access.
Suggested format for posting information:



Please note that in some airports (LAX, for example) it is possible to reach both the former CO and UA lounges and in others it may not. Please specify which lounge(s) to which you can provide access.

Got in an email:

Seems like right now it's only available for use with a debit card  :-\ But maybe that will change....

General Discussion / Best Value Skiing in the Northeast
« on: November 04, 2014, 01:15:57 PM »
Looking into possibly going skiing for a week in January with some friends. Any recommendations within a 5-hour drive from NYC that give you a bang for your buck? Minyan would be nice, but not a dealbreaker. Not going to be there over shabbos.

Is there any place in this city (or actually the entire east coast) to find Diet Barq's Root Beer? It's by far the best soda out there.

General Discussion / Help out a DDFer with a Torah venture
« on: March 31, 2014, 09:50:23 PM »
I just launched a Torah website designed to make Torah more shareable and accessible through social media. The goal is to reach people who would otherwise not be spending so much time learning by making articles that are engaging and informative, while being creative and quick to read.

The website is
