And I liked her more when she weighed over 115 lbs, but I'm funny that way. This may be...
BigBadBuff suggested the place I would direct you to: Black Salt in the Pallisades. Also in that neighborhood is Makoto -- great Japanese tasting menu, intimate space. Went there with the wife for our anniversary. Up Wisconsin Avenue a bit is Cafe Divan -- ok food, questionable service, but a great use of an odd triangluar space and street views of the neighborhood. There's the restaurant at the Ritz-Carleton on Church Street (between Wisc. Ave and 31st Street....
I'm going with Gnarls Barkley "Smiley Faces." Great retro feel and fantastic video. Yes, I know videos don't count in how the music sounds, but it let's you see how eclectic these guys are.
Bryce, good looking out! I'm about 3 weeks from my first born arriving (and a distinct dent in my shopping budget) and just got the 20% off. I could use a sport jacket (and some flannel pants). Thanks for the heads up.

To the original question, I think it's been stated that after 6 pm, brown is considered inappropriate. That being said, I just attended a charity event and wore brown lace-ups with a medium-dark grey suit (glen plaid with brown and light grey), blue shirt and brown and pale blue paisley tie. My "excuse" was I was coming from work to the event, but it was a good look for a less-than-formal event. Regarding brown in general, I'm pretty much over the excess of black in...
Large or XL depending on the brand and cut. I'm a 44 L, 36 W (to accomodate generous buttocks and thighs). Then again, I'm 6' 2" and over 200 lbs.
