We're preparing a traditional Thanksgiving turkey dinner today because that's when we could gather all of my in-laws, who are coming down from Wisconsin and the far northwest suburbs of Chicago. On Thursday, my wife and I went to a hotel restaurant - I did do the turkey thing but she had a very nicely-done pork chop.
This place deserved a Michelin star - more than Longman & Eagle.
Widespread Panic - maybe the 15th best band to come out of Athens, Georgia but revered by its fans as perhaps the best band ever; Pink Floyd - After Syd Barrett's departure, the band became a vehicle for broadcasting Roger Waters' boring neuroses (while "Dark Side of the Moon" was great, most of their other output is sheer tripe); Ray LaMontagne - why this guy is popular is a mystery; Phish - See Widespread Panic above; Dave Matthews Band - The only thing that he's...
Following on the holiday theme, we're planning another holiday hotel lobby bar crawl for Saturday, December 18th - probably starting at the Palmer House in the afternoon and ending at the Ritz-Carlton or the Drake (whenever). So far, "Burton", "Francisco d'Anconia", "ykurtz", "Xiaogou", "Globetrotter" and some other local SF'ers have expressed interest. PM me if you'd like to join us.

I think the car's performance and road feel outweigh any image issues. Unfortunately for me, my better half will not drive a manual transmission (even with the M double-clutch in "auto" mode).

But that's my opinion. Maybe you can explain your choice to me, I'm just new on SF, and learning from other people is a good thing. And what's the brand of that Tie? My thinking was that the red ground and blue/gold paisley the pocket square contrasted...
