Tuxedos: An Endangered Species in So-Cal

Tonight marks the triumphant return of 30 Rock — this little blogger wouldn’t miss it!

One of my all-time favorite scenes goes something like this:

TINA FEY: Why are you wearing a tuxedo?

ALEC BALDWIN:
It’s after six. What am I, a farmer?

As an Angeleno, I can’t help but daydream about a world in which formal functions are de rigueur. Yes, we have our galas and fundraisers, but black-tie weddings and parties are extremely rare here in Southern California.

(Even sport coats are uncommon, which may explain why our fair city rarely makes the party pages of Town & Country magazine.)

Speaking of glossies, Esquire has a few tips on tuxedo etiquette, should your fella be in the market for one.

And if you’re headed to a black-tie bash anytime soon, please write in and regale me with details.

I adore dressing up, and I’m wilting out west!
