Don't like the snow? You can make a bookmark with the following text instead of a url: javascript:snowStorm.toggleSnow(). Clicking it will toggle the snow on and off.
Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!

I find it amusing that the disconnect between one cultural indicator of economic class (dress) and other indicators of economic class (being able to afford $80 a plate for one meal) causes people such consternation, but declaring that going out to a museum should involve a dress code strikes me as needlessly regressive.

$80 for a meal. What are they serving, gold plated lobsters?

You ever hear of a wine flight, son?

No.

$80 a person with drinks is REALLY easy to do. Hell, I know some small plate places around here I could break that without drinks.

Also, often when you're paying that much for dinner you're paying as much for ambiance and service as for the food itself. Which is why people get annoyed when some fuckstick shows up in his Speed Racer t-shirt.

And shit, I've payed $40 or more just for a burger, fries, and a couple beers.

Ive paid for food you wouldn't believe. Bananas foster on fire prepared off my table's edge. I've watched seasonings glisten on fresh game meats which I subsequently ate. All those meals will be lost in time, like tears in the rain. Time to dine.
