I’m sure this has been discussed. I’m looking for date night location ideas, in a safe walkable area - anywhere in the metroplex . I have a few, let’s add.
Bishop arts - nice place. Recommend.
Lower Greenville - pretty nice place.
Trinity grove- kind of boring, somewhat sketchy on the bridge.
Sundance square (FW) - boring /dead atmosphere .
Grapevine downtown - decent, lack of restaurants.
I’m staying at a Courtyard with S/O and we opted for $20 per day F&B credit rather than the 500 points. I know you can’t save/rollover the $20 to the next day, but what exactly is a Marriott day?
A normal 1 night stay is ~ 4PM to 11AM, so is that the day? I’m wondering because I’m worried I screwed up and didn’t utilize a day’s credit, and want to make sure I don’t miss out for the next 2 days.
Paid with points, 5 nights, Monday-Saturday. Below are charges to the room so far:
Monday: drinks at night Tuesday: breakfast Wednesday: dinner Thursday (today) breakfast Friday: TBD Saturday: TBD
Based on this, did I miss Tuesday’s credit (since nothing was spent Tuesday afternoon-Wednesday noon)? And have I not used Thursday’s credit yet (since Thursday morning may still count as Wednesday day)?
Will Greenville County and anti-soccer fans in the Upstate of South Carolina fumble the bag on the new soccer stadium proposal for Bridgeway Station? Is the upstate even trying to grow if they say no? Why are they so stagnant? Are we not tired of driving hours to see a successful team?
Give me your recommendations. Thanks in advance!

. For more info
about the concert series. Experience the poetics, music, dancing, and community of Chicano "son jarocho," which is a musical and dance genre with roots in Veracruz, Mexico, and a history shaped by Spanish, Indigenous, and African traditions. In the U.S., the tradition has gained traction due to its accessible, collective, and often politicized practice. Las Brujas Chicanas is a son jarocho music collective of students, faculty, and community members emerging from the UNM Dept. of Chicana and Chicano Studies. Since 2016, Las Brujas have been cultivating this music through workshops and fandangos on campus and -- since 2022 -- master musician Laura Rebolloso has been teaching the group. In June 2023, the collective will be performing in Paris, France, and this concert is a way for them to share what they are working on. So bring your lunch and join the "fandango," or celebratory communal gathering in which band members take turns singing, dancing, and playing! * This event is sponsored by the UNM Maxwell Museum of Anthropology, Latin American & Iberian Institute, Dept. of Music, and LGBTQ Resource Center.

I woke up this morning and had notifications saying my cash app card had been declined due to insufficient funds for 3 separate very large charges. The first and second were at 4:03 & 4:05am from Geico in Washington DC for $3,323.50!! The last one was at 4:15 from Greenville Casualty Insurance in Greer, SC for $555.72 I don’t live in either of those states and neither company is MY insurance company. I have no idea how they got my card information. I already claimed that card as compromised and ordered a new one. I can’t dispute them since they never went through, but I was wondering if anyone else has experienced the same thing or something similar recently?? I would like to know if these people are hacking my account bc I slipped up somewhere or if they are hacking a bunch of accounts in another way.
