What do you do if you're trying to become more Sabbath observant but you're not there yet? Miriam's Advice Well has some suggestions.

Dear Miriam,

I'm looking for a place for my son's upcoming Bar Mitzvah, but venues for a party sure are expensive!  Do you have any ideas how to find a reasonably priced but still great location?  

Signed,
Price Bar-rier

I recently went to a "fleyshik potluck" — that is, people were asked to bring things that could be eaten with a meat meal. I'm used to vegetarian/dairy potlucks, and I was concerned from the beginning whether this meal would allow me to adhere to my own level of kashrut observance. When I got there, I saw that one of the guests had brought a kugel that was clearly dairy. The hosts put it out on the buffet along with the rest of the food. The whole thing made me really uncomfortable, but I also understand that the host was in a difficult situation. What should they have done? What should I have done?
