Director Sanvers prompt: pre-relationship-ish, already complicated fake date with Alex and Lucy (because of feels) gets even more complicated when they meet Maggie mid-date. Dealers choice on date location and outcome.

It’s a stakeout, Alex keeps telling herself. Doesn’t matter that the restaurant she’s in has a five month waiting list, the complimentary glass of champagne probably costs more than a month’s rent or that her date is Lucy Lane. Lucy Lane, who just walked in wearing a low-cut red dress and a smile that makes her eyes sparkle like the bubbles in the champagne Alex knocks back to hide a soppy smile.

It’s just a stakeout.

On this date in history: SOS was adopted as the International Distress Signal on July 1, 1908.⠀

A few years prior, the 2nd International Radiotelegraphic Convention had chosen the Morse code distress signal — three dots, three dashes and three more dots (· · · – – – · · ·) — as the standard international maritime distress signal.⠀

While the term SOS is believed by many to stand for “save our ship” (or “save our souls”), that’s not actually the case. It was really chosen simply because the way the distress signal is sent when using Morse code was hard to confuse with anything else.⠀

Unfortunately, if you’re stranded, you most likely won’t have a two-way radio, but if you do, it’s probably equipped with a means to send signal beeps. If so, use the Morse code version to try and send out a rescue SOS. If you’re stuck without a radio, find a large open space and do it the old fashioned way, by spelling it out with tree branches or rocks. The good thing about this kind of rescue signal is that it doesn’t need to be managed. Once you have it built, you can walk away and concentrate on that signal fire.⠀

Even though it was replaced by the Global Maritime Distress and Safety System in 1999, SOS is still universally seen as a distress call today.

Say you want to escape the doldrums of daily life — but you can’t quite afford a trip to Hawaii. Why not to head to your local tiki bar for a sample of the South Seas?

These faux-Polynesian, palm-thatched rum palaces that were all the rage in the 1960s are now making a comeback. Leading this nouveau-tiki movement are Lost Lake and Three Dots and a Dash in Chicago, Lei Low in Houston and Latitude 29 in New Orleans.

The newest, hippest island-themed establishment in Washington, D.C., is called Archipelago — and it’s tiki-kitsch to the max. There are glass fishing floats hanging from the ceiling. A lamp in the corner is shaped like a sexy hula dancer. And by the bar they’ve got a shrine dedicated to our favorite Hawaii-based TV private investigator, the ‘80s-tastic Tom Selleck.

Let’s Talk Tiki Bars: Harmless Fun Or Exploitation?
