A quick note today from Hall Street Grill in Beaverton. The restaurant will be closed for renovation from October 25th – November 1st, reopening November 2nd.
Thanksgiving event listings are pouring in, and I’m starting to put together the list. Have you added your restaurant yet?
Speaking of listings, the new Dining Room Rental section is off to a booming start. I now have about 100 restaurants in the list. If you are still looking for a place to hold your holiday party, you can check them out here.
El Gaucho seems to think some people have lost their manners, and are going to be offering a series of blog posts and classes covering various aspects of dining etiquette:
- Restaurant 101
- Table Manners
- Understanding Place Settings
- How to Handle the Bill
- Technology at the Table
- The Art of the Toast
- Dining In Style at Home
- Wine Etiquette
- Etiquette for Emerging Adults
“Emerging Adults” must be the politically correct term for children. Interesting that they feel this information is needed, but from what I frequently see happening around me in restaurants, I think it might be valuable to some people. I was brought up with manners to dine at the White House, but the kids these days… It’s nice to be getting older. Now I can drop the manners and spray my food all over the dining table. People just say, “Oh, that poor old man over there must have forgotten his teeth”.
