Eat Before You Go
Nothing ever starts on time, whether you’re headed to your best friend’s 40th party or an 8 p.m. Brazilian steakhouse reservation. You arrive famished, knock back a glass or two of pinot noir, and semi-inebriated you devour a bowl of pretzels or half a tray of croissant-wrapped mini hot dogs. Don’t become that person. Arrive at your gathering pleasantly full (you’ll be hungry by time your entrée arrives) and you can people-watch while everyone else is studying the menu or ravenously devouring hot baguette.
