The Comment of the Week
I thought this was an interesting comment by BaltBabs under Portion Control that got almost no discussion.
Since you brought up restaurants cutting back in a bad economy, I thought I would ask about other tactics restaurants are using (if you want to call them tactics) to make it in a tough economy. I go out regularly and I've noticed some shady stuff going on. I don't know if it is coincidence or what, but in the past month or so I've been to at least four bars/restaurants that have overcharged me. I don't think it had anything to do with the crowd, as none of the places were packed or short on servers. Each establishment overcharged for two glasses of wine. I typically dine with my boyfriend and we both drink wine, so it could be pretty easy to not catch if we didn't check the itemized bill. I just find it odd...four places each overcharging for alcohol. Don't know if others have experienced this as well.

I also want to mention the Robert of Cross Keys was in great form this week. There were about three comments of his that had me laughing out loud, including but not limited to his take on where to dine out to celebrate Earth Day:
I was thinking about just going outside and grazing for dinner. Unfortunately, we are now in the season of pesticide application at Cross Keys.
