One of our favorite things to do is get dressed up and have dinner at a nice restaurant. We are able to do this just as we have done everything since retirement - by looking at things differently and thinking out of the box.
Here are some of the ways we save money while enjoying a nice meal at a restaurant.
We have found that by eating during off hours you often get very good seating.
Early and late dining also allows you to enjoy your meal leisurely as well as time for more intimate conversations. Eating early gives you time to do something else afterward.
One of our favorite restaurants is located along a river front where there is often free entertainment - concerts, bands, art shows, etc. We enjoy walking along the river after dinner and taking in the free entertainment.
Fine dining is available and affordable even for retirees. We just have to be a bit more discerning about our choices. Bon Appetite!
