365 Restaurants, 2 Kids, 1 Giant Fiasco
The experience This afternoon and evening were busy (as usual). My car needed new tires, so we dropped off my car in the afternnon, then I had to take Mina to hula class, which is all the way across town while Benji napped. Our original plan was to meet somewhere like we usually do, but [...]
The experience Today when Ogre asked me about dinner, I remembered that on Tuesday it’s Kids Eat Free. It was Tuesday, so we set out to find the nearest Applebee’s. After getting a little lost, we finally happened upon it. We were seated right away and noticed a lot of tables with kids.
The experience I was Mina’s chauffeur again this evening driving a ways to her hula class. Ogre and I decided we’d meet after her class and thought that our plan a couple weeks ago to meet halfway would work again, so we decided on the El Chico right by the Bone Daddy’s we went to [...]
The experience Benji awoke and seemed to be in very good spirits after his evening of fever and vomiting. We decided we’d trek out for lunch and after some initial indecision, Ogre made the command decision to try Boston Market (which Mina used to think was Steak and Shake because they both have the black [...]
The experience When I called Ogre at 4:30 to tell him I picked up Mina and was headed to my mom’s, he informed me that he had a 7 o’clock meeting in Irving. Nice heads up. I asked him if he wanted to eat dinner before and he was a little suspect with his answer. [...]
The experience Today I had a day off with no commitments, appointments or anything else that I had to do, so I thought we should go out to breakfast. Unfortunately, pickings are getting VERY slim for breakfast choices that we haven’t eaten at already this year! The only restaurant that I could think of that [...]
The experience Mina was at church with her grandparents, so it would just be the Benji at dinner tonight kid-wise. Ogre was in Irving all day, so we decided to meet halfway-ish in Addison for dinner. There’s a place that was recommended to me long a go by a good friend (the Irving location actually), [...]
The experience I’m writing this over a week after actually going there, so my recollection of the experience is not going to go so well. I know that Ogre and Mina love this place and in the past, I’ve been a little bit “iffy” about reviewing it for childsplate. Afterall, it’s Hooters. That just doesn’t [...]
The experience Today we headed out for lunch and I gave Ogre three options, he headed to Jason’s Deli, which was actually the last restaurant of choice, but would still do. We walked in and, once again, were lucky to beat the rush and ordered straight away. Benji was happy to stand with us as [...]
Can’t find the cord to the Sony Camera, will post pics when we find it. The experience Today we would be going to celebrate my birthday at dinner! Since we wanted to keep our options open, we decided we’d better hit a new restaurant for lunch. We decided on Lenny’s Sub Shop. Unfortuntely, when we [...]
Childsplate.com chronicles our journey to find the perfect family restaurant. We are looking for restaurants with excellent food and a great attitude towards kids, even the whiny, cranky ones! We will be headed out to a different restaurant every single day to provide ourselves (and you) with some entertainment and good information about DFW area restaurants. We hope you will visit frequently and use our experiences to create some fun dining experiences of your own! Watch out, DFW, the Phipps family is going out to eat!
