What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I'm a lawyer by day, active in artistic and public interest
organizations, and at night a confirmed urbanite.
I’m really good at

Help your potential matches find common interests.
Movies: (favorite DVD sets)--Alfred Hitchcock Collection (esp.
Vertigo), Preston Sturges Classics (esp. The Lady Eve), Peter
Sellar's Mozart/DePonte opera set (esp Don Giovanni), Peter
Seller's Pink Panther Collection, Godfather Saga
Books: Currently I'm a big fan of Michael Chabon, particularly his
"Amazing Adventures of K&C", but his non-fiction, too. Among
classics, I keep returning to Poe, Twain, Joyce and Nabokov.
By the way, if you have not read "Lolita" by Nabokov, you really
should. It is an awesome book.
Music: I'm a fan of almost all types of music; to paraphrase
Ellington, there's good music and bad music in every genre. I
attend live music regularly, more than weekly, and can be spotted
everywhere from Schubas to Hideout to Lyric to Green Mill to
Ravinia to Lollapalooza.
(I stay away from Green Mill on the nights they have poetry slams,
Food: I'm a foodie by birth (family was in business), and my local
favorites range from Alinea through MK to Green Zebra. I also am a
bit of a wino.
(NUM Green Zebra .... I'm the rare kind of fellow who can go out to
eat without needing a large portion of red meat to be happy.)
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.

Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Last Friday, for instance, I went after work to a River North art
