Aside from being relieved from the stress involved in food preparation going out to eat is a good way to exercise, get fresh air, see and be seen by others. Restaurants have always served as meeting points for different people in different circumstances. It could be to discuss a business deal, a job interview, a blind date or just stepping out of the house with your close buddies to have a cool time out either Brokeback way or in a platoon way.
People of a certain class say middle class, visit middle class restaurants so they can observe middle class behaviour. Restaurants have long played an important role in socialisation and even acculturation. One get’s exposed to other cultures by visiting restaurants that serve cuisine or delicacies that are alien to them. This is big business as evidenced by the proliferation of Indian delis, Italian Trattoria’s, French style road café’s and bistros, Japanese sushi restaurants and Chinese restaurants hhmn I love Chinese!!!
If you’re the type that seldom goes to restaurants or not at all, take a chance and give yourself a treat. When I say restaurants do not confuse it for fast food joints… :o( CALORIES. Take a friend out, be it your girlfriend or boyfriend even a buddy, get out and get some air and just have a nice time.
