Apologize for Anything Before Asking for a Favor

The next time you want to ask someone for a favor, try apologizing first. Apologizing for what? Anything at all, even the rain!

Through a random series of events (including a riot), I ended up here for the Burj Khalifa's NYE fireworks show (+ .5 star for the view).

Attention meat lovers! Meet other meat lovers. With over 15 different types of meat (Brazilian style), 9 different types of salad, and an untold amount of desserts (protip: get the grilled pineapple), this place embodies the excessive carbon output that characterizes wealth. But don't let this destruction of our planet crush you into guilt. It's totally worth it... for at least one night.

At first it looks sketchy, but when you realize it's the closest you'll get to Chinatown in Virginia Beach, you go for it. I'm still wondering where Numbers 1-6 are though.
