I have several foodie friends who are financially comfortable enough to go out to eat pretty much anytime and anywhere they want. Must be nice. Maybe I should spend more time with them.
At least several times a week, they arrange to meet up with friends at the newest and latest go-to spot (and there are new ones nearly each week) or spend a couple of hours at some old favorite. They fill their blogs and Facebook pages with comments about new wines, twists on classic dishes, their favorite servers/owners and plenty of banter about why one place is better than another. The arguments can get intense.
