What about food?
Potluck dinner anyone?
No one likes to go out without being fed, so you and your companions need to choose where you would like to eat.Where you go strongly depends on what your group enjoys to eat. Do you like Italian? Chinese? Got coupons?
How about going out to eat at one of the locally owned ethnic restaurants? They have lower priced meals that taste delicious, and you would also be helping to support a community business!
Maybe you would rather have something simple such as some hamburgers. Sometimes going out to eat can be very pricey, so why not stay home with some pizzas? It’s tasty, inexpensive, and can feed many!
