    Post a man about town

    From Emma Noble: Why are the Majors ignoring my autistic son? | Mail Online

    Emma's wariness is quite understandable. She'd been dating James Major - a sometime nightclub entrepreneur, who had failed to make his mark as a novelist, a businessman or even a man about town - for just two weeks when they were photographed together in 1998 at a post-Bafta nomination party.

    What does "man about town" mean?
