Places You Went as a Kid That You Loved

Jason English

On Fridays, I post a series of unrelated questions meant to spark conversation in the comments. Answer one, answer all, respond to someone else's reply, whatever you want. On to this week's topics of discussion...

1. We're headed for the Liberty Science Center tomorrow, which I've been talking up to my 3-year-old way too much for a place I've never actually been. (Dinosaurs! Outer Space! Water Play! Snacks!) What are some educational family outings you loved, either as a kid or as a parent?

2. OK, now let's scrap the "educational" part. What are some other places or events you fondly remember attending? I'll submit that time in 1987 when we went to the Meadowlands to watch Randy "Macho Man" Savage take on Ricky "The Dragon" Steamboat months after Macho Man had crushed The Dragon's larynx with a bell.

3. The Wall Street Journal is reporting that Nissan may revive the Datsun brand. If you were put in charge of such things, what defunct brands would you bring back from the dead?

4. I'm borrowing this last question from a Grantland podcast last month. What would you pay double for to get right away? Example: Instead of waiting in line for coffee, you could get it immediately for twice the price.
