AYLOR, but electric lights are not so simple to use for shabbos, even when there is no other choice (stuck in the hospital), many hold you can not make a bracha on them. For havdalah, you can use 2 matches.
I should have been clearer that I was looking for a match-less solution.  We'll continue doing it the old way, but with a tray we bring from home.

Would be Batel.
This is dated, but the halacha hasn't changed, and most of the facts haven't either. C&S did sell this year, as did restaurant depot.
I haven't researched shoprites this year and can't confirm if the rule of a kosher experience means it's not Jewish owned is still true.

2 if normally it is used primarily as an entrance to the dining room.
If ppl primarily enter the DR from the foyer, then it would be 1

This. Right side going into DR
And if it's equal?

And this.

You would go through the kitchen to get to the DR but not the opposite.

There is a gra that indicates not, but it's not uncommon, and any posek I've discussed it with is ok with it. You should have a shomer for Maariv perhaps

Assuming that one should make a "Kiddush" for a newborn daughter, does it have to be a Kiddush, or can it be a meal during the week, or does it even have to be a meal? Can I get an ice cream truck to come to my block for friends and families?

Thanks

The custom is a kiddush. It's not an obligation.
An ice cream truck is not the custom
