  1. Eh I'm still at the sign em up for everything and see what sticks age. At least at lower ages it's just clinics so if they stop going nobody cares, and it's quite cheap for the ones run by the town. For my older one it was a bit more annoying as a lot of the more casual clinics didn't really happen during covid, so post-covid there's a weird split between kids who got private/parental/travel instruction and those who did nothing. We've had more luck with things like tennis where it's done by skill level rather than age group.
  2. I'm glad my family is unathletic. Though it's a bit annoying as there doesn't seem to be any room any more for kids who just play for fun. I don't think my town has a rec soccer league any more, it's travel or bust. And it was a bit nauseating watching the other dads kissing up to the coach (who is also the HS coach) at the kindergarten lax clinic.
  3. My wife only had a fever. Weirdly she didn't test positive until after she had symptoms. She only tested because I got it afterwards. Kids both had it and were asymptomatic. Ironically I was the only one who had a booster in the last year and had the worst (though still mild) symptoms.
  4. Staying near place Des vosges. Have young kids so no offal or tasting menus otherwise anything goes. Tentatively booked Norma, we are going to the countryside for a bit as well so happy to do something not-very-french for a night.
  5. If anyone has any recs for spots near the Marais open Sunday dinner...
  6. I had just come here to ask the same question!
  7. My favorite vegetable! Considered going here in spring but we will have kids with us and all indication are that the waits between courses can be....considerable. While they are excellent eaters patience is not their strong suite and I'd rather not just have them sitting on their Switch for 3 hours.
  8. Only member of the family with a fourth booster, only one to have any normal covid symptoms (still, super minor flu-ishness that resolved in two days). So does anyone actually know if there's any chance that one is continuous if you're still throwing positive tests 5 days after symptoms resolved?
  9. Thanks. Will look around, our kids are 5 and 10...so getting to the "older" range. Seems like trains are the way to go in the mountains there and Switzerland as well....driving could lead to divorce.
  10. @Behemoth after years of reading this thread we are finally going to make it to the Dolomites at the end of August. Now to figure out the details....we will be flying in and out of Milan. Current idea would be 4 nights at the Holzner with the other 4 "free" nights split between Venice and either someone on the lake or maybe just more time in Milan, or maybe two nights in Merano? As I've never been to Venice I don't want to skip it this trip as who knows when we'll be back. Q also for @Anthony Bonner, did you rent a car? Is it necessary? It seems like the trains can get us to and from Mil
  11. Looks fantastic. If you decide to stay a bit in Montalcino we loved the Giglio. Great views from the room, amazing breakfast spread, restaurant was great and great wine list. And cheap. This was 10+ years ago but recent reviews seem similar.
  12. Perhaps turn one of the side trips into a couple night stop? As others said driving around the countryside in Italy is lovely. We picked up a car in Florence and then spent some time in Tuscan hill towns (stayed in montalcino but tons of places) before returning the car somewhere outside Rome and training in. Could just cut a few days off Rome/Florence to add 2-4 night in Tuscany/Umbria. Especially in the summer it's also nice to be able to walk around those towns at night when the tour busses have left!
  13. Sounds great! Location definitely a factor in London, you definitely realize with kids how BIG it is.
  14. The Atomix/Atoboy team new place Naro just opened in Rock center as well. Supposed to be more traditional Korean influences...tasting menu only.
  15. Besides the food the Harry Potter studio was awesome though. If they like Indian we liked BiBi a lot - sort of modern-ish. Plenty of veg options.
