Heading to Cleveland and Pittsburgh at the end of the week to watch some baseball.  Any suggestions on food places in both cities?

I’ve had to scrap three vacation plans this year (only one directly because of coronavirus). At this point I’m probably just gonna do a national parks road trip of the Mountain West. Can drive it and doesn’t involve being near people.

I haven't made any plans for holiday's until I know what travel restrictions will be between countries. I would like to try to visit my folks at some point but also have to consider that carries additional risks for them as they are quite old.  But I want to visit as they are quite old.  What to do...

It is also very unlikely that I will take a single work trip this year when I normally take a couple of trips to San Diego, Japan, and Melbourne each within any year.

One upside of this whole thing is I've been able to save up some PTO. Got 8 vacation days and 2 sick days (sick time is especially scarce for me since I usually have to use some whenever my kid gets sick) banked right now, and accruing one of each every month.

Coming up would be my two prime travel months, so nothing going this year. Next year, thinking either the Amsterdam-Berlin trip I've been putting off or the Karlovy Vary film festival and a few days in Prague. I have only left North America once - Hawaii. Yes, that counts, Hawaii is not on the N. American continent, it's not their fault a certain someone saw and conquered. But it's time to REALLY get off-continent soon. 14 years and I finally have at least somewhat enough $$$ to do so.

If anybody every passes through SG, do like me know, happy to be a guide or meet for drinks or dinner.  Saltine, still waiting for you to make it after a few chances.  But you know, when it is safe
