Thomas pretty much said it all, except make sure you sear the steak at high heat, then move to a cooler portion of the grill, especially if you like it a bit more done. If you want to add flavor to less than choice cuts, use a rub instead of a marinade. A simple one has (in order of proportion) paprika, cumin, black pepper, and cayenne. Use 2:2:1 but 1/4 as much cayenne as blk pepper.
I think tradition is a good thing, I had a traditional "prayer meeting" at my bachelor party, with a lot of "Lawd have mercy," "Good Gawd," and "Amen!" The fact that I knew one of the "deaconesses" was an added bonus. But, I digress. . . . If you want to do something different, go to a ball game or take a boat day-cruise. I once went to a bachelor party with a female "best mate," and she went traditional: picked him up in a 60's convertible, cigars, scotch, strippers...

I'm sure I will have one every couple of days. Oh yeah, "It's My Life" or whatever by, I think, Gwen Stefani. 1.) Behind the Music: New Edition has been running on VH-1 for a few weeks, so that might explain why "Cool it Now" is cropping up. 2.) I saw that...
Quote: Originally Posted by Avers What's your experience with shirts by Hugo Boss? How do they compare to shirts by Hickey Freeman, HSM, Ike Behar, Polo?

I have a Boss Black Label indigo shirt I picked a few years ago that is still one of my favorites.
My league drafts on the 4th of September. Your draft looked solid, but trading for Brooks as a viable option at QB is akin to hoping Clay Aikens will become the George Michael of his generation, even though he has Rick Astley written all over him.
Gentlemen: A very informed and enlightened thread. My personal experience is that God is what is possible in the world -- good, bad, transcendent, and depraved. There is faith and there is religion. Faith is belief beyond tangible experience. Religion is man's attempt to codify the ethereal and indefinable that is faith. I am in awe of people of faith, for they believe in the possibilities of existence and beyond. Religious people scare the hell out of me. And it's...
Thrift/consigment shops are another way, in addition to eBay, to get some of the value back on them. Probelm is that if the suits stick around for several weeks, you may not get enough to make it worth your while. Then again, I usually donate mine and write them off of my taxes.
6'2", 220 lbs. 25" thighs from track, weightlifting, and a brief infatuation with beach volleyball (largely in my mind). I've been buying pants at least a size larger to accomodate (and the butt) them since I was 21. Even when I was down at 195, they were still out of proportion to my waist. You're fine.
I've been hearing about this policy of taking credit card #s with reservations and then charging if the party cancels without sufficient notice. But you're down members of the party? That's some BS. I mean, life interrupts. . . illness (yours, a guest, your child), late night at the office, missed flight. WTF? If it's a no show, blackball 'em --most restaurants in urban areas are using computer systems anyway. Otherwise, it's the cost of doing business. It' not like the...

Remember how many new shows Fox put out when it first tried to compete with the big boys? But I digress. . ....
