OK. blog, I need your help and this has nothing to do with real estate, foreclosures, development, downtown or design. Mom and Dad are coming into town to visit next week and I need to pick a place for a birthday dinner on the 23rd.
- Dad (The Coach) – Eats meat. No rice, pasta, tomatoes, onions, salad, or vegetables beyond corn and, well, corn. Pepper is an exotic spice for him.
- Mom (The Keeb – looks just like a Keebler Elf) – She’ll go exotic and order some seafood entire with a cream sauce that will make her sick. Pretty open, but can’t handle garlic in any form.
- Birthday Boy – Would eat about anything, since he hasn’t had a meal out without a spork in a long time. Venison carpaccio would be nice.Is frightened by the concept of a blooming union THING and its impact on heart health.
They are on the road between winter in Tucson and summer in central Minnesota, so they will be living out of a suitcase without dress up clothes. I think Harrah’s steak house is out of the picture! I thought that the Cactus Grille at the Bonanza Casino might work out just fine,but they have gotten really expensive and are rivaling the downtown venues on price.
So a casual, extraordinary, reasonably affordable and memorable dinner with beef for Dad and seafood that won’t make Mom barf. Any suggestions from you epicures?
