I request a table for 200 million.
Thanksgiving dinner place.
They serve quiet contentment.
Echo-chambers for dessert, eh!?!
Is that the door to the smoking area?
Funny thing about Buttercup – other than all the other funny things about him – his name never comes up in any conversation in our house. Certainly won’t tomorrow.
Bring the family and see who has to leave.
Seems pretty reasonable to me.
This way to the egress, suckers.
Never talk about politics or religion at the dinner table…or after dinner… or before dinner.
Some may even eat crow….
Chez Genteel being on the 42nd floor, one can hope.
The rule about “no talking about religion or politics” is a cause of our current condition (in the US anyhow). Anyone who have been told this – and obeyed – has zero experience discussing these things. So we so not have the conversational, and in many cases, the intellectual skills to even enter the discussion, much less carry on while making any sense.
I won’t claim this is a major contributor, but it has had a real effect.
Silence is acquiescence.
Because, apparently, it’s not possible to have a civil discussion about politics. sigh
Would you like to get fried with that?
Politics, no. Religion, no. Medical conditions, no. Sex? Oh please say yes.
Does the policy apply to this comments section?
If whiny brats aren’t allowed either, this restaurant will be my favorite, too. My lunch dates with cousins, though, tends to be about their latest illness and their cats. Lots and lots of cats.
Are sports still on the table?
And the restaurant only serves pablum. The sugar free, no salt, lactose free, gluten free variety. And they wonder how they got there, can’t find their way home, but blame each other. And everyone gets stuck with the check. And no one gets anything to eat but everyone gets served.
is this a rerun?
I’m here for the Argument Clinic.
Just in time for Thanksgiving Day!
What we need is a place where people do both. If people had more civil conversations about politics, things would get better
I’d love it if restaurants had “kid” and “non-kid” sections……
I’ll gladly talk politics to someone who differs from me, as long as it is a respectful and civil conversation. I’ve only known a couple of people with whom I can do this.
Looks like a good place to eat.
Nowadays, talking politics is civil disorder.

Wiley’s best. Thanks.
Mostly we just avoid it at family meetings. Life is too short to live with it 24/7.
I have reservations.
Please, may I have a table for two?
A good one to repeat before Thanksgiving.
