Getting together for a weekend with 7 other high school friends in Denver in early November. Looking at Westin downtown, Renaissance and Hyatt. Any recommendations for night life and hotel in Denver?
I loathe American Airlines. Old airplanes. Too tight connections. Rude AF desk staff. Incompetent flight attendants. 🤬
Hey team need some help - I’ve flown United since I was a child, and naturally I’ve flown with them through and through my consulting career. I just flew on Delta for the first time and it was so much nicer than what I’ve been used to. What’s loyalty like here at Delta - and is it worth status matching and becoming Delta loyal? NYC based if that makes any difference. TIA!!

How’d vaccines become political??? I remember back when it started thinking “imagine how poplar vaccines will be when they come out, and we’ll all be able to stop worrying avoid Covid”. Now here we are, but with so many nay-sayers, we have delta on the rise. How’d this happen???

Rolex Sub, Sea-dweller or Deep Sea? Haven’t tried the latter two in metal and concerned that 43mm and 44mm maybe too big for my wrist (7 inches). But love the last two more. Can I wear it at work?

Folks who’ve left ClearView, how is life on the other side, and how long did you stay before you jumped ship? It’s a week where I’m burning, and the fact that I feel so isolated during it makes me want to quit consulting altogether. Would also like to talk to some of you if possible. Never thought I’d say this but I honestly feel unhappy in my job, and I wonder if it is just WFH related - and whether it might get better once the office opens up.
