It sounds so reasonable but the reality is so different.... what do you do if you find one you really like? Hell what if you find that "one" dish at a restaurant? Say that it was really good and then good-bye because you had a "plan" and one fine restaurant didn't fit in it?
Change the plan? There is only so much money that can be used for eating out, it doesn't happen every night.
The reality is we go to ones we know we like and are affordable almost half the time & a new one the other times. Such is our life.
One of our favorites is the horse race track. They have a nice buffet at the track upper dining area (around $15), tables with screens to watch the action and a button to push if you want someone to take your wagers & don't want to walk the 50 feet to the cages.
$5 drinks, linen table cloths and $2 to wager on a horse is actually cheap entertainment.

The horse track is attached to a full sized casino & that's always a lot of fun. One thing I have noticed is the 'Penny Slots'. Cheap entertainment right? For a lot of the machines it is but when the penny slots have minimum wagers from 25 cents to 80 cents I have to wonder. It's still another fun place to spend $10 in entertainment money!
