xmas gift help - great place in East TN?

I love turning to food given my lack of ideas for gifts :)

My folks live in Kingsport, and I'd like to set them up with a very nice meal in East Tennessee as a Christmas present. I'd say ~$175 would be the target price. They would have no problem traveling to Knoxville if necessary. Thanks for any advice :)

Good eats in the greater Atlantic City area?

Just moved into South Jersey to work in AC, and I was wondering if anyone had good recommendations? I searched, and seems like a lot of the talk is about tourist spots in AC itself - being I'm not a native I have time to fan out and try some other venues. I've seen Knife and Fork, Dock's Oyster House and Little Saigon and White House Subs mentioned a few times. What other suggestions for AC, Margate, Brigantine, Egg Harbor, Mays Landing, or any other nearby locales? (All price points appreciated)

White House Sub Shop
2301 Arctic Ave, Atlantic City, NJ 08401

Dock's Oyster House
2405 Atlantic Avenue, Atlantic City, NJ 08401

Little Saigon Restaurant
2801 Arctic Ave, Atlantic City, NJ 08401

rehearsal dinner suggestions - crystal city and beyond

Howdy folks,

I unfortunately only stumbled across this board today; having recently moved away after years living in Arlington, I wish I had seen it long ago!

I'm getting married in Crystal City in May, and I need to plan the rehearsal dinner. Ideally, we would like to be in Crystal City, but anything metro accessible (probably on the VA or close-in DC) could work as well. We have several out of town guests who won't have cars, so anything else would be tough, but we could arrange car pools if we really needed to because the restaurant was just too good.

We expect 40 people at the dinner, and we had targetted $40/person all-in, estimating 2 drinks per person. I know this is pretty limiting, and we could probably squeeze that number up some, but $60 would be a hard, hard limit. Getting under $50/person would make things much better off.

MIL doesn't like Indian food, and 1/4 of the family is of Hawaiian/Asian decent, so they aren't fond of "American" chinese food. Other than that, no cuisine restrictions.

Thanks very much for any advice!
