Denver ? Low humidity, cool air at night, functional downtown/metro area ... housing should be pretty reasonable, although I haven't checked lately.

I'm in the camp that considers a button (or two) left unbuttoned on jacket sleeves to be tacky. However, I think it's only a matter of time before leaving a single one unbuttoned evolves into "correct" or "proper" and this looks like the first step: http://www.boingboing.net/2011/05/15/RTR2D74H.jpg It's one thing for Mr. MBA at the hip bar to be doing it, but the CEO of GS has nothing to prove to anyone. He might just be clueless in the style realm, but however...
Here is how I would spend 8 days ... Fly from SFO to NYC. Arrive around 5 or 6pm. Stay in midtown, have a nice dinner and see a show. Next morning, have a nice run in central park, do some shopping, get to the airport for an 8pm flight to Zurich. Stay at the park hyatt for two nights. Eat rich continental food. Do lots of walking. Then rent a car and drive south (1.5 hours) to Davos. Stay at the Arabella Sheraton (with starpoints ?). Do some hiking. Next...

I'm looking for a very good, very high end wine shop in San Francisco that isn't geared exclusively to californian wines. I've been to most of the good shops where I live, in Marin County, and not one of them had even a single bottle of Cahors, and some of them did not even have Ch√ɬĘteauneuf-du-Pape. Where should I visit in the city ?
I will be buying this book and intend to read a fair portion of it.
All of the sushi restaurants in Aspen (there are three) have been serving wonderful lamb chop dishes, which sounds very odd and wrong ... but it works. I have had some tremendous meals at Matsuhisa and Kenichi that consisted of sushi apps, salads, sashimi and so on, and instead of moving on to a big roll or a yellowtail collar, etc., we had wonderful Colorado lamb chops as the main course. These are wonderful meals every time - especially as it allows you to properly...
