Something fun is planned for our Christmas meal - hint in the photo, details coming after the meal's over - but we want to hear about your plans: what and where will you be eating on Christmas? How about New Year's Eve? Will you be enjoying meals with the family at home, or are you planning something exciting at a restaurant or two - assuming that you can find a place that's open, with tables?
This week's open discussion was inspired by reader Amanda (@manda903 on Twitter), who asked about local dinner options for New Year's Eve. A quick check last night showed that some of the top area restaurants still have tables open for New Year's, but Christmas is obviously more of a challenge, as chefs, servers, and management tend not to hang around waiting for customers on the holiday. There are exceptions, of course: Chinese, Indian, Japanese, and some other ethnic restaurants are traditionally open on Christmas for those who want or need to go out.
Post your plans and thoughts in the comments section below! If you've had any especially memorable past meals on Christmas or New Year's, feel free to share them, too.
