Fellas, if you need some help getting your ladies in the mood, look no further than the sweet R&B stylings of Elgin Baylor Lumpkin. Tickets are priced per couple and include a free CD, three-course meal, and a dessert cocktail, which we truly hope is made with Adult Chocolate Milk (tagline: "Re-taste Your Youth at 40 Proof"). We hear Mr. L is quite fond of it.
