The art (and science) of selecting a restaurant

A-Beautiful-Mind-DIThis is a celebration of men.…more specifically, a celebration of my man. He is so good at hard stuff, really complicated stuff…and yet so endearingly clueless about.. well, simpler stuff.

So in an effort to be helpful to all men, not just my man, and drawing from the deep well of personal life lessons, here’s the first in a series of HOW TO guides..I’ll title this one:

A SMART GUY’S GUIDE TO PICKING A NEW AND PERFECT RESTAURANT.

#1 TRIP ADVISOR  USE IT. It’s a site online where real people write about their experiences at restaurants. Don’t roll the dice honey, read the reviews.banquet chairs

#2 BANQUET CHAIRS These are stackable seats for conferences and weddings at hotels. If you see these chairs in pictures of a restaurant (on TRIP ADVISOR) do NOT make reservations, move on to the next option.

#3 CARPETING..with a few exceptions, like maybe a ski lodge, this is usually not a good thing to see at a restaurant, especially if combined with banquet chairs.  (see exhibit A)

#4 PLACEMATS..(again, study the pictures on TRIP ADVISOR) Totally acceptable for 50s diners and burger joints; MAJOR warning sign if combined with #2 and #3.

In conclusion, if you cannot find a restaurant without carpet, banquet chairs or placemats near you, take your sweetie on a picnic or surprise her with a bottle of wine, pizza, chocolate, a movie and a back rub.. Just trust me.
