And another question: Is Bill Pay even working for anyone? When I click on "Pay Bills", I get, "Due to technical difficulties we are unable to process your request at the moment. Please try again.

We apologize for the inconvenience."

I registered a RC yesterday and did't receive the confirmation email yet. Any reason why it's taking so long?

Anybody know how much time do I have after activating a temporary red card till I have to register it online ? Does the card expire after a certain amount of time ? Thank you in advance...

If you don't register the card, then it's a non-refundable gift card. From the back of the RC flap, "Temporary Card subject to terms and conditions of enclosed Cardholder Agreement. It cannot be reloaded, used at ATM's or used internationally. Funds do not expire. For full functionality, you must successfully register for a prepaid REDcard account..."

You don't think that TPG, RC, LM, or Mike's can make an excellent steak?
Or Shallot's, Ditmas, Pat's, Herzog, etc?

Never had anything inedible served from one of those places, but have had several inedible items served from HG.

Only truly excellent steak I ever had in Florida was Chops. Though Rare was pretty close once.

I'd have called your experience 1 for 4 or maybe 1.5 for 4.  In other cities I rarely bat under .750

Maybe add shiloh to the la list. When i was in la, i felt that Shiloh trumped Pats in everything (ambiance, food, service). when i went (2 yrs ago) they had a cowboy steak for two that was one of my favorite steaks

Also, rare steakhouse was much classier than rare bistro, but they prob downgraded due to their clientele. we always have a nice experience and some great food, whether its a meat or chicken (even the chicken fingers are awesome!). even though it wasn't on the menu i was still able to get truffle fries which are really good

Was at Eden Wok last week:

Pastrami Egg Roll (3.95) - I liked it a lot, even though it tasted 100% fast food
Crispy Shredded Beef (19.95) - ok, nothing special, sauce was good, meat was crispy enough to enjoy

There's a separate restaurant thread
http://forums.dansdeals.com/index.php?topic=20953.0

Thanks. Didn't see it since expected NYC instead of Manhattan. BTW are there separate restaurant thread for destination, because until now i would just put restaurant TR posts in the trip master thread? (ex. boston, south florida)

Has Singleton on shabbos, pretty underrated scotch:

As of Now: (Updated)
Best Scotches
For 40-60: The Singleton
For 60-80: Balvenie 14yr Carribean Cask
For 80-100: Glenlivet Nadurra

For 40-60 go with Balvenie 12 Yr Single Malt Doublewood or Cardhu

IMHO the Balvenie 12yr tastes too much like glenlivet 15 which Singleton trumps; didn't try Cardhu yet

IMHO swap the Nadurra for Compass Box Hedonisim

Didn't try it yet. It's on the waiting list :). Sounds very interesting given the fact that it's a blended grain scotch

Family trip to Boston today:

Left Motzei Shabbos, stayed by relatives in Newton, 20 min out of Boston.

On Sunday, we started by heading to nearest target that carried RC and bought up :). We then headed into the Boston Harbor area. We parked in the underground garage of International Place (87 Purchase St Boston, MA 02110). Parking was flat $10 for the day on weekends (It's a gov. building so you have to show driver's license). It was a really nice day. We walked up Purchase St. up to S Market St. The kids went on the merry go round, we saw street performers (which is always nice), then went to Quincy Market. Visited Cheers, which was very cool, saw a lot of cute boutiques, and just hung around the area.

We then headed to Taam China for dinner. (No lunch specials on Sundays :(). Here's the rundown: It's a decent Chinese atmosphere. Waiters could be nicer (like Dan said). Some of us needed the bathroom afterwards. Main Course portions were smaller than usual, but their prices were appropriate. Now, the food:

Appetizers & Soup:
Egg Roll (2.75) - Smaller, nothing amazing, but great for its price
Beef Teriyaki (8.95) - sweet glaze on them, which complimented the beef sticks nicely
BBQ Spareribs (12.95) - Expensive for only 2 pieces, but amazing, came with honey glaze ??? (possibly due to asking for the food to have no msg)
Pecking Ravioli (pan fried) (7.25) - Really good, thick dough, juicy meat, sweet & spicy side sauce
Chicken Fingers (7.50) - Very oily, no taste
Egg-drop Wanton Soup (2.95) - Classic, very good
Hot & Sour (2.95) - Perfectly spicy, definitely would get again

Main Course:
Chicken with Fresh Mushroom  (12.95) - Very good, chicken decent, mushrooms very good, interesting sweet white sauce
Beef with Broccoli (14.95) - a little too much glaze/sauce but still good, beef very tasty, broccoli crunchy and tasty
Happy Meal (15.95) - Very Good, chicken, beef, veal, veggies all great
Szechuan Crispy Beef (15.95) - Amazing, very crispy, pieces are bigger than usual, and a little spicy which makes it perfect
Chicken Lo Mein (8.95) - Nothing special, simple thin noodles, with bland chicken

Desert: (for Birthday) got a slice of cake (5.95) - After tasting it, I apologized to the birthday boy for getting it for him

After dinner, we headed back to our relatives' home, and left shortly after, to go back home
