Hey Harley, sorry for the delay here, but I wanted to make sure I didn't lead you astray so I checked with our fashion department. The consensus seems to be that its more about the fabric than the color. Don't wear a lightweight in white, but you can wear a heavy wool in white during the winter months. A lot of people we asked also said that a slight off-white is a good alternative. For the most part, the rule is antiquated, and once you leave port all rules are off anyways so suit up those whites and lace up your Sperrys!
Hey Leandro, many cards offer double points on certain things like travel and dining, so be sure to find out what kind of perks your card offers, and then try to maximize your points by using their partner vendors. Check out our interview with The Points Guy too, he knows more about credit card rewards programs than the credit card companies themselves.
Hey Sabrina, you've come to the right place. One of our contributors wrote a piece about the best way to go about securing the perfect table a while back. He says to mention the importance of the dinner when you make the reservation, always be polite, and call to confirm as the date approaches.
It doesn't hurt to stop in and make the reservation in person either (before the dinner rush of course) with a little green gratuity for the host. Heres a link to the main article: http://www.justluxe.com/travel/news/feature-893707.php
Have you decided on a location? Last time I was in Dallas a friend took me to Dragonfly in Hotel ZaZa and we had an amazing experience.
Hey Lydia, San Fran is totally the place to be for eco-friendly hotels. The Orchard and Good Hotel are both 100% green hotels, and while theyre both pretty nice I wouldnt say that they're luxurious. Your best bet to split the difference would be the Sir Francis Drake. As a Kimpton Hotel they've been consistently commended for their commitment to conservation, and its undoubtedly one of the city's finest hotels.
As a bonus, they'll give you a $10 credit for the bar or bistro when you opt in to their Choose to Conserve program. Hope this helps, let me know if you need any other suggestions!
