American Express/money

So, I have no money other than what my very forgiving roommate is lending me, and no credit cards other than the temporary one AmEx gave me (I don’t know why Visa couldn’t have done that–grumble). AmEx isn’t too useful here, it seems. Can you think of anywhere I could use it, off the top of your head? How about foreign places like Warner Village cinema, Ruby Tuesday’s, TGI Friday’s or Chili’s? (Actually, I did use it at King Join…)

Being wallet-less really bites; I can’t even cash my traveler’s checks (which were not lost/stolen) without my (lost/stolen) passport.

Swensens, TGI Fridays all those kind of places take AmEx. So does Julianas if you need to drink/dance
