We recently came across a funny and somewhat inspirational article at Esquire's online home. It's a directive to men on the fine art of fine dining.
The article includes 39 tips. Our favorites?
#14 A gentleman never has his cell phone on the table.
#17 A gentleman always orders after his guests do.
#20 A gentleman takes his mother out to dinner four times a year.
Some of them made us smile.
#6 A gentleman never talks about golf with women present. (Thank goodness!)
#11 A gentleman does not use sugar substitutes. (Huh?)
