    All,

    I propose dining out Saturday, May 30 at 6:00 p.m. down at Virginia Beach Town Center. I'm looking at several restaurants listed below:

    Romano's Macaroni Grill(Italian) $$
    California Pizza Kitchen $$
    Cheesecake Factory $$$
    Keagans (Irish pub/restaurant) $$
    McCormick & Schmick's (Seafood) $$$
    Redstar Tavern $$
    Ruth's Chris Steakhouse $$$$

    If someone has a favorite, let me know.

    Harold's Family Restaurant would be more in line with my predilections.

    All of those others are national chains. I like to support truly local businesses.

    Keagan's is the only one you've listed that I think might be a regional chain, kinda like Kelly's Tavern (which you also failed to mention).

    Harold's is in the same building (around the corner) as Barnes & Noble and FYE (formerly Planet Music). I would rate them at $$ for price. My wife and I eat in there regularly and they are smoke-free, if that matters to anyone.

    From your list the only one I could conscionably patronize would be Keagan's.

    Smoke-Free definitely works for us! I also like to support small businesses when I can. I live in a very small town with a town market, a post office and a few churches. No sidewalks and no streetlights. We definitely support the "Little Guy" ehenever possible.

    All of the above were suggestions that I found for Town Center restaurants (which probably only advertised the big hitters). I'm game for any place in that area. I just like being able to walk around there and public parking is free in the garages.

    Even though I'm new around here, I would love to go and I actually have the 30th off. VA beach isn't that far for me. Any of those places sound good to me.

    Have moved the wife and kids to Oklahoma City already and have no life outside of work. I'd love to make it to another dinner again. Not been to any of those places but have to the area many times. Count me in.

    Harold's sounds like the winner, but I'm good for anything but Ruth's. Stupid name, and even worse prices.

    Harold's has good food, Red Star is awful!! Hopefully either my brother or I can make it... Our shop is only a couple miles down the road, but we're open until 8 on Saturday..

    If it's at Harold's and my wife hasn't gone into labor yet, I'll most-definitely be there.

    How about Wing King On VA Beach Blvd? Prices are $ and the food quality is $$$. They also have live music later on Saturdays if anyone wants to stick around.

    Harolds sounds good to me. Has anyone OC'd there before or had issues? I just don't want to show up and have them turn us away before we even have the dining out. I suggest 7p.m. for those working late to possibly make it.

    I OC in there whenever the missus and I dine.

    Again, if she hasn't gone into labor by then, I plan to attend, maybe +1...

    Either my brother or I should be able to come, but it would help if we knew where, and whether the plan is for 6 pm or 7 pm.
