Need a tux for Thursday night

Heather Whitestone, welcome to Pittsburgh

Former Miss America visits for gala to benefit DePaul school for the deaf. We'll be there, Oct. 7, 2004.

From Sept. 20, 2004

Tips on getting a tux for a black-tie gig are welcomed. The tux is for me. The retirement isn't mine. I'm already retired.

A friend says one should go to Florida and shop in second-hand stores to uncover bargains and goodies like this. Furs too, if that's your cup of tea. The yankees (sorry Sox) go to Florida to retire and die. Then lots of their things end up in re-sale shops. That advice won't help for this week's function.

One upside, other than a date with my sweetheart who gets invited to such occasions, is that our photo could show up in the PG's seen column. Snicker. Or, I could take our photo and post it here and replace that copyleft illustration of digital guy.

There is a tux shop on Highland Avenue that was able to get me fitted and ready to go for a tux in under 3 hours (15 minutes for a fitting and then told to come back in a bit to pick it up). The owner is the sole employee and he seems to have good style and a good selection.
