Is going to someone's house, where they will teach and supervise board games, a marketable idea of a midwinter vacation activity?

Any recommendation for a place that repairs cell phones? Needs some soldering.

If you need to take a flight to get there, then yes.   Otherwise it's not in enough.

Would love to take my kids to see Reb Moshe Hillel while he's on town. Is there any way to know where he may be beforehand as opposed to seeing pics and reports after?

Not sure if this will help, but this is from Hefkervelt:  Rav Moshe Hillel Hirsch shlita will spend shabbos in Lakewood in the Kol Aryeh neighborhood 14ty st and hope chapel area.
