Not interested in meeting new dates, but keeping this profile on for friends on the site.
I am an adventurous and affectionate man, with many interests and tastes, and would love sharing my life with an adventurous and affectionate woman.
I am eclectic, clever, and warm
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, though!)
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.)
Chocolate (dark, of course)
Home entertainment system
Art (everything from art deco to prison art)
