Did you know? - Black tie is a dress code for formal evening events, and is worn to many types of social functions. For a man, the major component is a jacket, known as a dinner jacket (Britain and the Commonwealth) or tuxedo (mainly U.S.), which is usually black but is also seen in midnight blue. A woman's corresponding evening dress ranges from a conservative cocktail dress to the long evening gown, determined by current fashion, local custom, and the occasion's time.
Black tie dates from 1860, when Henry Poole & Co. (Savile Row's founders) created a short smoking jacket for the Prince of Wales (later Edward VII of the United Kingdom) to wear to informal dinner parties as an alternative to white tie, the standard formal dress. At that time, lounge suits were starting to be worn in the country, and the new dress code was an evening lounge suit intended for use in a relaxed atmosphere out of town.
Linda was dressed to kill! Love that hat!
Did you know? - Bonnets are a variety of headgear for both sexes, which have in common only the absence of a significant brim. Bonnet derives from the same word in French, where it originally indicated a type of material. In the twenty-first century, only a few kinds of headgear are still referred to as bonnets, most commonly those worn by babies and Scottish soldiers.
Neal looked so good Donna had to shield her eyes!
Did you know? - Sunglasses or sun glasses are a form of protective eyewear designed primarily to prevent bright sunlight and high-energy visible light from damaging or discomforting the eyes. They can sometimes also function as a visual aid, as variously termed spectacles or glasses exist which feature lenses that are colored, polarized or darkened. In the early 20th century they were also known as sun cheaters (cheaters being an American slang term for glasses).

"Best lasagna in the world... Reminds me of when I was a kid!"
Did you know? - Lasagna (or lasagne) is a classic Italian pasta casserole dish which consists of alternate layers of pasta, cheese, a sauce, and often other ingredients. As with many Italian dishes, significant regional variations exist. In some areas, the sauce is likely to be a simple tomato sauce or a ragù; in others, a Béchamel sauce. Ingredients may include meatballs, sausage and sliced hard-boiled eggs.
The word applies to both the dish and the sheets of pasta used. Lasagna is singular, whereas lasagne is plural. In the UK the plural term (lasagne) is used for the dish as it is made from several layers of the pasta
