Dining Out For Life — Leson’s restaurant parlor game (play along!)

On Thursday, April 30th, restaurants around town are banding together once again to help in the fight against HIV and AIDS, donating 30 percent of all proceeds to the Lifelong AIDS Alliance. Dine out for life at participating restaurants and you, too, will be donating to the (local) cause. I just had a look at the big, long list — one that includes restaurants I’ve never been to, plenty I haven’t been to in way too long, and others I regularly frequent and never need an excuse to go back to. Which got me thinking: let’s play a parlor game! Grab a pen and paper (in case you forgot, a pen is a writing implement with ink in it, paper is a small portable surface made from dead trees). The rules?

1) Review the Dining Out For Life participants: open this link

2) Make three lists, choosing five restaurants for each for a total of 15 restaurants.

3) Compile your three lists with these thoughts in mind:

“I’ve never been, but hope to change that, soon.”

“I’ve been away too long and meaning to get back.”

“I eat here often”

OK, ready? I’ll show you mine, if you show me yours:

Never been: King’s Hardware, Mioposto, Portage Restaurant, Sutra, Table 219

Been away too long: Hi-Spot Cafe, DeLuxe Bar & Grill, Eats Market Cafe, Restaurant Zoe, Ristorante Machiavelli

I eat here often: Cafe Presse, Licorous, Lola, Quinn’s Pub, Tutta Bella
