Frum's stance on this is, as Manton has noted, not surprising to anyone who has been following his latest ventures. His blog, New Majority (now FrumForum), is in an all-out war with the Tea Party movement and his stance regarding Palin have garnered him lots of attention. I personally believe that Frum is an extremely intelligent and articulated man. I disagree with some his stances but I wholeheartedly agree with him on quite a bit. He has been straying away from the...
I had a barley soup that also had smoked meat and lardon in it. A bit unusual for me, but surprisingly good and tasty. Also had slow-roasted pork shoulder with baked beans and root vegetables and a glass of a decent Bordeaux. Earthy meal...
I'm still intrigued by the demographics that this place attracts... I mean, being cheap doesn't mean that it's going to be bad, but the fact that it is so easy to join raises questions. As for being able to invite friends there, that's just normal for a club, in my opinion. I mean, you join a club to have a good, quiet place to bring clients who aren't necessarily members... Is their other bar, Sidecar, any good? I might try that one...
French caramelized onion soup and mac'n'cheese at lunch, and then chicken pad thai at dinner. Fairly normal day!

Gin and tonics with a dash of cointreau Beef tenderloin, gorgonzola black olive butter, vegetables, whipped potato, bordelaise sauce A glass of red Côtes du Rhône The beef was well cooked and I liked the gorgonzola butter. Sauce was a bit subpar. Overall, a good meal.
I would say the Gable is still a rather classic suit. It is not too 'fashion-forward' or anything like that. The lapels are a touch narrower than on the Alton, but nothing too narrow.
Would you send it to me too? I am in Toronto a couple of days a month and I always have some time to kill -- that could be fun! Thanks...
I mostly wear Samuelsohn suits and I am very pleased with them. The Alton is fuller, more traditional cut that is quite forgiving. I am wearing a navy one right now and it makes for a quite good power suit. They can also take quite the beating. The Gable cut is more modern, slimmer and with higher armholes. It is a very nice cut. It is now over-the-top slim, but it has a beautiful silhouette. As far as I know, those are the two cuts that they have right now, though...
