Like Huey Lewis once sang, "it's hip to be square" (and save money). Man, first they move in on our Insider bar trend, and now our early dinner specials, what next, jeans with cuffs ?


Alinea lovers, note the savings (still steep, but down from stratospheric) and now my OpenTable 1,000 points (essentially $10 savings) might require roller derby skills to squeeze in.

 

Oh well, I still have my goldstar, travelzoo, fillaseat, and costco restaurant gift cards and oh yeah, my Marriott Rewards Offers **.

 

** - just booked a two room villa that charged $50 a piece (which of course, they disclose after the click here price) for each additional person beyond the second guest. What did they think, me and the Mrs. were going to play hide and seek?!  Why, I oughta......

          foxglove - my daughter (28) runs with some 'hipsters' and I always get nervous when they get interested in my beers, cigars, or restaurants, worried they'll drive the prices up and the supply down. I keep reminding them that waiting in line at Rose's Luxury (newest hot spot in DC that doesn't take reservations) for two hours is cool and to stay at it .

    "Well, I'm not force-feeding myself a steak at [5]:30 just to save a couple bucks, I'll tell you that!" -- Jerry to his parents in the episode "The Cadillac."
