This year I'm going to book early because the good ones fill up pretty quick. I want to go to a nice steak house restaurant this year.

I'm curious if the economic downturn will have an effect on Dine Out this year.

For myself, I've been going to 2-4 each year and plan to do the same again.

I think that there are a number of factors that will lead to lower Dine Out sales this year. The economy is one, the other is that Dine Out has really gone off track from its purpose. It originally featured great restaurants offering creative menus at decent prices. Now Dine Out is flooded with mediocre restaurants offering regular menu items at near normal pricing.

BTW by Dine Out sales, I mean by sales figures, not just implied attendance from how busy the restaurants seem.

if you check some of the mediocre restuarants' menu, it might be much cheaper eating on a regular night that dine out event

tonnes of people do that now though... especially the taking pictures part.. that i can handle... the yelling not so much.

appropriate behaviour at appropriate places i guess. if you act like a 12 year old at elixir then that won't go over too well with anyone.

and it's not called the "peace sign."

"V" is refered as "victory."

Please correct me if I'm wrong. I am not a honger!

i don't even think hongers use that to express victory, but it's just a honger thing to do.
"one, two fweee.... cheeeeeese!!!!"

sorry, back on topic. it is now Jan. 5th, and I want dibs on making resos NOW b/c they said Jan5th! *shakes fist*

I want to try Belgian food, but there is only 1 choice, and I don't want to go there.
