Re: Israel Master Thread: Things To Do, Places To Eat Bad experience today with Bentzi Jeep tours. Booked months ago and he confirmed. Decided to reconfirm the night before via email just in case. He asked to start an hour earlier. So I rearranged my schedule, rented a car for the trip to Mitzpe Yericho, and guess what, he wasn't there. Called him on his cell and he claimed I had no reservation. I forwarded back to him his emails and he later replied that's it's my fault for not confirming by phone. Note, we never spoke by spoke prior. 

What a waste of money on a rented car, gas and time.  Going tomorrow for the Kotel tunnel tours. Got to be better.

No Talia's in the wiki? I know it's not the favorite place here, but with all the groupons, I figured there would be some reviews. (And that someone would add their opinion to the wiki.)

What to get?

It's not worth it.  I had a coupon on a Groupon and still feel cheated. Would like to see a class action lawsuit for their false labeling of filet mignon and prime rib.

Re: Interesting Articles...
I have seen numerous people politely request to be moved next to someone of the same gender and it has almost always worked. Would you want your daughter sitting next to Trump on a plane?

Rather Trump than the Puppa Rebbe's Gabbai.

Re: Pesach Program in Greece Cancelled Just Now!
I was there.

The program was complete chaos and disorganization. I was there last year as well and while the food was awful, there was plenty of it and we had a nice time since the property is gorgeous and we enjoyed the crowd. This year was just ridiculous. Not enough food, no tea room, nobody to talk to about the multiple issues.

Regarding the article above, the story was that the hotel gave the program a bill of about $250k at the end of the program for services they claimed they provided (on top of what the program had already paid them) which the program claimed was inaccurate. The program owner slipped out of the hotel at 4AM after chag.

We checked out early since our flight was early afternoon and all was fine. About 1pm the hotel realized that the owner of the program had skipped town and so they started detaining guests and refusing to allow them to leave the property without paying extravagant amounts, from $5k-$35k per family...

The property is about a mile or more off the main road. There is a long road (about 5-10 minutes) once you get off the highway to the property. There are 3 security checkpoints along that road and they do not let you off the property without a pass from the hotel showing you are paid up in full.

As far as I know everyone left, paid with their Amex cards and are planning to dispute these charges.

...followed up by, "So you're not an atheist, you're an ignoramus!"

That line is awesome and effective on those that are frum - not those that are OTD.

In Brooklyn, making $200k a year with 10 kids, you're struggling...

Crazy but true.

People calm down. You can see from the indictment that this happened many years ago.  They may have made mistakes, looks llike they went off of programs, but the FBI is still here to catch. It's not like they recently had these programs.

Didn't they get off the programs after the investigation began?

+1 I say there should be a policy, anyone getting a tuition break has to give their tzedakah money to the school and not to the flashy tzedakahs orgs.

How about: if you get a break you still owe the rest to be paid later (at death if necessary).
