    Makes it a great opportunity for Rick at Spier, Ideyi at LF and Jok at GTA Shoeshine.

    And hopefully some other people can realize an opportunity.

    Spier has gotten a lot more business than usual from me. [​IMG]

    Anyone have any recommendations for NYE? The ideal for me would be a black-tie optional near downtown, preferably with live music; we're into dancing the night away, but not very clubby.

    Saw this but don't know about black-tie and Bee Gees. There's also this out by the airport, but again, I'd prefer downtown... surprised there isn't something at one of the swankier hotels.


    Newer to town (relatively speaking), so definitely appreciative of some local wisdom.

    The Old Mill is not by the airport. It is between Bloor West and Kingsway. It is right on the subway line, with free transit running all night on NYE I would strongly consider it. (Subway station - Old Mill)

    Any idea if there are any local or online CAD retailers that would stock MERZ B. SCHWANEN henleys?

    Right now the ones I like are at NMWA - but the conversion is killer...

    If anyone has had good dealings with EU based shops, and who ship postal. Please share.
    The EU gets some really great brands and the EURO is 1.50.

    Anyone here have a recommendation/good dealings for where to buy SNS Herning?

    Thanks. I messed up the 2nd link (duplicated the first). Was meant to be http://reggaemania.com/the-new-years-eve-black-tie-affair-delta-t-o-airport-west/

    The Old Mill one is in the running right now, as is Brassaii; though I shudder at their definition of "sophisticated formal attire".

    Careful with Brassai--their service can be a bit dickish. I have a handful of free drink coupons from their last fuck-up but my aversion to them hasn't yet been overcome by the prospect of free drinks.

    When you get those free drinks, do you have to sign forgiveness papers? I mean you can have drinks and still be angry at them :)

    No anger here--I lack the energy and commitment to carry a grudge! And it takes very poor service for me to become annoyed.

    In any case, I'd rather pay for a drink at a bar I enjoy rather than put up with a shitty vibe just to save a few dollars.
