What has been your experience with Chabad Houses? Are there any ones in particular that you'd recommend? At the ones you've been to, were the participants mostly regulars / in-towners or guests?

I've been to Chabad houses in lots of places, from Anchorage to Venice. They are quite different from each other -- some charge you for meals, for example. The one in Venice is probably the strangest of them all with all the Yechi stuff and the ton of Israelis - Chabad and not, but they fed us and were nice to us so I appreciate that.

I've been to a bunch, some great, an some less so. If you'd like recommendations PM me. The crowd varies depending on the specific chabad house.

Mais oui. How can one be a snag if one knows nothing of the other side? :)

Extensive research. When we sit down for that drink someday, I have a lot to tell you... :)

Snag, are you well-traveled or was it particularly Chabad Houses you were visiting?
