Staying at the Ritz Carlton - Dove Mountain, AZ for a long weekend. Before coming, I called and asked what the COVID restrictions were, I was given vague information and once I arrived realized that the restrictions were more stringent than described, and the only restaurant open for dinner service on hotel property is a mile away, near the golf course. When asking the hotel how we are supposed to get there for dinner, they told us that we would have to walk as they are understaffed....

Female Fishes - looking to spend 400-500$ on a gift for my girl friend, 39, long hair, 5.7- very stylish and opinionated. She has a Feregamo clutch, LV pocket book, small butberry card case, lots of Hermès. Want to get something meaningful that will stay on with her forever! Just going through a very rough patch and want it to be meaningful that we will get through this.. ideas? Done too many Michelin stars and staycations at Ritz etc..
