Ah man, the Maldives is a bucket list destination for me! One of these days, my wife and I will make it there. It’s just tough with the 3+ connections each way from my home airport, but I know once we get there it’ll be amazing!

Did you use one of the board options? Are you a Titanium or up bonvoy member? Trying to decide if it's worth it.

Looking for a hip dinner spot to take my husband on his birthday (late 30s) in Manhattan.

When I say special, not like Eleven Madison special, but something that feels cool and buzzy. Bonus points for outdoor dining option. TIA!!

Is it normal for dogs to get super lethargic and sleepy when it’s cold outside? My dog usually is so annoying during that day because she has so much energy, but lately she just sleeps allllll day. I’m wondering if it’s the weather, or maybe because she’s 1.5 and growing up? It’s weird and I’m worried something might be wrong 🥺 everything else (appetite, how she plays when she’s with friends, bowel movements, etc) is normal!
