Quiet Recommendations

Any area is fine, as long as it is not too far outside of the cities. For budget, any place that has entrees for less than $30 or so should be fine!

Quiet Recommendations

Hi all-

In about a month or so, my Grandparents will be visiting me in the Twin Cities, and I'd like to take them out some place really special to eat. I need to be very picky about where I choose however, as they are both very hard of hearing, and often get discouraged at places that are loud, as restaurants tend to be. They are somewhat adventurous, though I'm not sure how well they would do with some of the ethnic varieties we have here in the cities. We will most likely be going out around 7 on a Thursday night, so I'm looking for some place that will take reservations as well.

Thanks in advance for your suggestions!

Cheap Vodka

I have a snotty friend who likes to complain that, "cheap vodka gives her headaches" when ever we are at parties and guys offer her free, cheap vodka, mostly just when it is a brand that she doesn't recognize. I realize that her statement might actually be true, however I believe that her headaches are more a result of her not knowing how to properly mix a drink when using less filtered vodka. I am hoping that someone more knowledgeable than myself can provide a good answer to this and rebuttle to her being brand crazy as opposed to quality crazy, so that I can finally get her to stop making us both look so bad!
