4. Dining without whining
Finding the perfect place to meet a client for lunch in a strange city can be a chore, and truth be told, today's plethora of user-driven Web 2.0 sites can be hard to navigate and often contain contradictory information.
Not so the original user-generated restaurant review guide, Zagat.com. The site allows you to search eateries in 85 U.S. cities by criteria suited to your needs -spots with king-of-the-universe views, say, or quiet dining rooms good for talking turkey. Membership costs $25 a year; for a few dollars more, you can download Zagat to Go to your smartphone.
