 Can someone please tell me what the official definition of "blazersuit" is?
 Bar and restaurant recs are welcome, as they are my favorite way of gathering the pulse of a new place. Boston is a seafood town, I presume? I was only there for 2 short spurts for interviews in January. The weather was lovely!     I would rather die.
