Gawker's wedding weekend review

Apparently the New York Times is on to Gawker's rating section and are trying to throw them off base. They still seem to be doing a good job of making it the straight girl's sports page.

This week's winning couple:
Ann Lee and Fabian Caceres

Ann is a private practice attorney; Fabian does equities at the NYSE. -20
Their friends call them "walking Zagat guides." Gross! -10
They got engaged at the opera. -10
The wedding party featured an "Argentine meat-carving station" and "pumpkin risotto with lobster." If we were really committed to the weird semi-sincere populist shtick we've developed here this would probably have to sink Ann and Fabian another 30, but whatever, these sound like good foods. +10
The table setting at the wedding reception included "delicate white silk butterflies," as a reference to the lady: apparently Fabes calls her "his butterfly." +10
The best part of the night was when the band did "Somebody Told Me." -5
The best part of the honeymoon was "swimming with sharks in Australia." +30 for fearlessness, good taste in animals
Total: +5
