We have certainly gone the pizza route lots of time and that is an option. However, I have also seen us try to walk into restaurants - overwhelm the place move all the tables and wait forever for service, lol-So I like to plan ahead, if I can, and give us a nice option where we can eat. I thought we're in TX let's eat Tex-Mex.
Originally, we were all going to be parked downtown at the car show, and I heard about these two awesome restaurants down there, and I thought I'd see who wanted to go and I'd make some reservations. (Those of us who were in Bowling Green during the POCI convention last July would understand because we wandered all over town trying to get into a restaurant.)
After I posted, I found out that we can't stay parked downtown unless we are attending the concert that evening. If you are going to the concert, you will pay a fee to be in that area. So since I already had this post rolling, I thought I'd find another locale.
This dinner is not a big scheduled Bandit Run event. I just know that in the past what starts out being a couple of us going to eat, turns into 50, lol. Birds of a feather flock together and all that. It makes it a whole lot easier, if I phone ahead and tell them to bring in some extra staff and throw a few more taters in the pot. Plus we usually have a great time. (Ask Wayne (Snowman) about the steakhouse in Bowling Green, lol.)
Basically, everyone is free to eat where they please. Some folks may decide to pay the concert fee and stay downtown, some people will pick up fast-food, and some folks will want to head out to a sit-down restaurant. So for those folks, I'll make us some reservations.
Bottom line is it's your vacation and you should do whatever makes you happy.
