There is a gas leak in the building where I have class this afternoon so it was cancelled. I usually hate cancelling classes because it throws off the schedule and I have to make it up somehow but I really didn't feel like going in there today so . I still have another class at 7pm though....
I went to Cava in Delisle Court (Yonge/St. Clair) on Saturday night and it was very good. It's a Spanish Tapas type place and most of the dishes we had were great, a few were so-so... I'll try to remember which ones and post a more complete review later if anyone is interested.
It's been 5 yrs but I stayed at a couple of smaller B&B type places on the Big Island and it was great. Big resorts are fine for Maui, Kauai... but the Big Island is less about beaches and more for exploring imo.
I've just returned from a short trip to Boston and for those interested: FB has Elgin Scottish cashmere scarves for $40. Picked up a couple - very nice scarf and great value. Marshall's across the street had a beautiful 3 pc Corneliani suit in 38L. Greyish brown houndstooth flannel with lapeled vest. A beauty for $399! Frank Stella boutique is closing and everything is 30-60% off. Some nice Gran Sasso sweaters for 60% off (got a great argyle merino cashmere crew...

At least, this is the way my mother, a professional costume designer, used to do it. It's not cheap and it takes a skilled tailor. No. I would not trust any alterations tailor to touch the sleevehead of my coat...

To add further insult to injury, some of...
Nothing can beat the guy who found a brand new pair of JL Prestige shoes at a thrift store for $2!! With lasted trees!! It's in one of the other threads but I remember it vividly since they were my size... edit: here's the post http://www.styleforum.net/showpost.p...postcount=1196
What's up with the weed these days? My friend gave me some bud before I went on vacation last month and warned me it was really strong but WTF!? I used to smoke daily when in my late teens/early twenties (so nearly 20 yrs ago) and the weed today is so much more potent that i can't imagine smoking daily. Just 1/2 joint will knock me out now. Before you say my tolerance level is down, which is partly true, I can smoke less potent strands of weed and hash without feeling...
