My self-summary
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
What I’m doing with my life
I'm a lawyer by day, active in artistic and public interest organizations, and at night a confirmed urbanite.
I’m really good at
Multitasking and doing way too much.
The first things people usually notice about me
My blue eyes and my smile.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
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, 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.)
Six things I could never do without
My children (two in early 30s)
Chocolate (dark, of course)
Home entertainment system
Art (everything from art deco to prison art)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
the meaning of life. And what I'm doing tomorrow.
On a typical Friday night I am
Last Friday, for instance, I went after work to a River North art gallery opening, then to a new Italian restaurant, then to a North Side theatre. Eventually to bed
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I'm not! In fact, you have to tickle me extensively to find out anything of a personal nature about me.
You should message me if
you're interested. I am very open minded and have enjoyed meeting new friends and loves since my divorce a few years ago. I am attracted to a person with native intelligence (academic degrees are irrelevant), a love of life, a passion for experiences, and a deep appreciation of sensual delights (food, wine, music, theatre, art...).
The two of us
