Thanks for the tips about the starting brands!! Now just need to find a shop to smoke in...
After reading this thread, I went out and tried a gimlet along with a Manhattan. Maybe she didn't make it right or maybe that's just the way it is, but the Manhattan was DAMN strong - almost like whiskey on the rocks! I was thouroughly impressed by the gimlet. It was smooth and had the just the right touch of lemon. After one Manhattan and 3 gimlets, I was feeling very nice. Next time, I'll be sure to try and Old Fashioned and a Mint Julep.

Excellent! Just made reservations at GT and will cancel Daniel's on Monday. The dress code is business casual. Does that mean jeans and button down shirt? Or trousers w/ belt and a shirt tucked in? BTW, can you gentleman recommend a bottle of wine? I am not too up on this stuff and would rather ask here than the waiter. Price range ~50ish.
