I guess you can't handle being rich.
The billionaires that have security, drivers, personnel assistants, the list goes on. They have no privacy
In that case, I don't want to be rich.

Encore is also great for families because of their waterpark.

Interesting. What makes one place more ideal than another for a sukkah?

I have 5 men with a bal koreh in Bella Vida potentially if anyone wants to do a minyan.
No problem with carrying on Shabbos as you build the Sukkah up against the garage.
Sonoma is nicer than Bella Vida IMO.

Why are you looking for Bella Vida?

Anyone know if Bella Vida community has a minyan for Sukkos?
There was no Minyan last year.
Minyan last year was in:
Encore
Reunion
Championsgate

Encore homes are ideal for building a sukka

Just called Hertz to change something and the recording said that you can modify reservations online for free and if you choose to do it over the phone a 5% call center fee will apply.

Is this new?
I'm not sure about 5%, I believe it's $10.

The nerve of them!
Boy would you hate flying EK F, NH F, or SQ F.
Stick with AA J! ;D
Seriously @Dan
It was much.

I went to Tabernacle on Monday night.

We made reservations lest week for  6 people for 06:30 PM. They called the morning of to confirm reservation. When we got there, only 4 of us showed up. They sat us at the bar until because they were "getting our table ready". When we were seated i immediately wanted to order appetizers but was told that "chef wants the entire order is at once". Honestly I don't care what the Chef wants. I'm freaking hungry and I want food now. I'm not interested in waiting until everyone decides what to order and then wait again for the appetizers to come out. I kind of feel that if I customer ask for something, you say yes. Especially when their meal is more than your weekly salary. In general I felt that the service was very intrusive and I felt that I was constantly being surveilled. I mean as soon as I finished my glass of water it was already filled. Empty plates were instantly cleared of the table. It felt really creepy. We didn't have any privacy. The service also felt very pretentious. Especially how they explained the history and story around the Caesar salad. It was very much.

The food was delicious though.

I ordered

Lamb Rilletes (Order Again)
Spare Ribs (Skip)
Flanken (Okay) 
Beef Jerky (Okay)
Surprise Steak (Delicious, Tad Salty. Order Again)
Potatoes (Skip)
Fries (Okay)

They also take things off the menu. So not necessarily do they have everything that is posted online.

Anyone aware of no cancellations within 7 days of the flight?
I wasn't aware and now I cannot cancel the flight, they will only give me travel credit minus 79 dollars per ticket!
Anything to do about this?
No. The regulation only requires a refund beyond 7 days out.

You have to open a Ask a non Lubavitcher anything thread for that.
LOL
1) Can anyone advise if the shuls other than חב"ד are Orthodox? If so, to what level? 
2) Does the local חב"ד have a good relationship with the other local Jewish community?
FTFM

This is a game changer for me.
I generally don't fly spirit into/out of FLL because of the cost of getting there from MB.
Now that they will service MIA I will definitely be flying spirit more.
This will definitely impact Frontier.

I fly frontier all the time.
Never had a bad experience with them.
Additionally, you cannot beat the convenience of Trenton. It's a quarter of the stress of any major airport.

Hey guys - any advice for spending 4 weekdays (June 14th) in Florida right after Sheva Brachos?

Flying to FLL, thinking of renting a car and staying at the Confidante, but also have Marriott points.

Any suggestions on what Area/Hotel to stay, things to do (besides try all the awesome food).

Thanks so much!
Don't rent a car. You'll pay a fortune for parking.

Since I already have a sunpass account, I prefer updating the account with my rental car license plate than taking my EZ-Pass and risking forgetting it behind.
Agreed. Adding you plate won't help for E-Pass.

I've been there. Unimpressed. Menu is also very small.
Anywhere else?
