We've been invited to an evening wedding in Seattle area at a swanky hotel which is black tie. Not our usual venue at all. Neither of us wants to spend lots to dress for a single social occasion. And my husband is a big guy with a long torso and short legs, so he is not easy to fit anyway. Thoughts on where to go and what to do to get dressed affordably?

Seattle area telecom: Can anyone suggest a battery distributor/warehouse that stocks deep cycle lead acid batteries of the type suitable for a DC UPS?

4g Wireless broadband in Seattle: I'm considering replacing my Qwest DSL with 4g wireless broadband. (A cable modem solution isn't available in my building.) Also, I think I'd be purchasing the home modem version of the plan upon which I decide. I have plenty of mobile internet with my iPhone. Fast enough to stream netflix is my benchmark. It seems like Sprint is the best deal. What say you? Thanks!

I'll be on a trip to Seattle on Sunday, 11/7 -- the day that my hometown team the Atlanta Falcons will be squaring off against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Since I'm guessing that the Atlanta-Tampa Bay contest will not the be featured game on the local Seattle Fox affiliate, I'm wondering ... Is there any place in Seattle (I'm thinking sports bar, I guess?) where expatriate Falcons fans gather? Heck, I'd even be willing to go to place where expatriate Bucs fans gather. Or just a sports bar in general where they might show all the games on various monitors. Thanks!

Helping a friend out by driving his car up to Victoria from the San Francisco and leaving it there for him. Looking forward to the trip, but stymied by finding an affordable 1 way trip back to the Bay Area in mid-October. Flights from Victoria are about $300, which isn't horrible, but we would rather take a ferry back to the States and fly back from there. [more inside]
On the hunt for the best place to take an old friend to dinner for *really good* bbq pork fried rice in the general Seattle area.

My painter is recommending Rodda paint for our house exterior. I like that Rodda is a regional company here in Seattle. But I can't find any reviews on their quality. Nothing in Consumer Reports.

My son loves little trains! We took him to the model railroad exhibition last winter and he was completely entranced. He's only 2 so heavy museums with lots of stationary artifacts aren't so interesting to him -- he wants to see things moving! But we don't have the space (or frankly the inclination) to maintain a model railroad in our home. Is there a place in or near Seattle where we can see model railroads year-round?
