what costume for a horse do you like better?
i cant deside what to do so im asking you guys....
princess and unicorn
angel and demon
aslan b/c of the movie this year
spongebob and patrick
wonka gold ticket (drape a gold sheat over my horse and write on it. i would be charlie or something)
hay bale (put a refridgerater box under a sheet and glue hay to the sheet)
pirates of the carribean
ok so what one do you like better? by the way, if you have any better ideas feel free to share them with me.
my first choice is the hay bale. do you like that one?
my horse is bliss on a stick. in other words very calm. she can have a saddle hanging under her tummy, a kid jumping around her and screaming, and i firework going off. ya know what she does? sleep. thats her favorite hobbie besides eating.
o but the point of that was she can be dressed up without any problems.
Answer: defitnetly the princess and unicorn one, it would be so cute!

What do I wear to a really expensive dinner party?
Im going to Charlie Trotters in a week, and I have nothing nice in my closet.
I also dont really have a mom to consult about fashion or anything.
Im definitely a chucky ts jeans and a hoodie type of girl.
I got invited to this fancy pants restaurant, and dont know what to shop for at all.
I need everything from shoes to accessories. Links are nice.
Im also kind of on a budget.
Answer: Don't wear anything with slick material. 90% of forever 21 dresses are like this and are not appropriate for an event like this. I would do a fairly simple dress honestly. Here are a few options
If you wear black try a pop of color with your jewelry. Teal and aqua is a really big color this fall.
There is a ton more you can do with jewelry but I need to see the dress you choose to be able to accessorize it well. This is just general right now.
Shoes like these go with those dresses. The first link is a bit easier to walk in than the other two if you are not use to heels.

Im taking my wife to Charlie Trotters in Chicago for our anniversary, 6pm or 9pm dinner?
This will be our 5 year anniversary and so Ive reserved the kitchen table for us. However, it can only be reserved at 6pm or 9pm. Has anyone eaten there and do you have a suggestion? Also, Im thinking about bringing my own bottle of wine even though theres a $50 corkage fee...is the wine pairing really expensive? Thanks!
Answer: Neither....Charlie Trotter's hasn't been good for years. Charlie hasn't cooked their for years and he's gotten real lazy in updating his selections.
I would recommend any of the other fine dining restaurants in Chicago and I would highly recommend Alinea for a true cutting edge fine dining experience featuring the most innovative chef in the City, Grant Atchez.

What is the most expensive restaurant in Chicago?
Money is not an issue. I wish to find the most expensive place to eat in the whole city. Also, any prices would be greatly appreciated, specifically of their most expensive dish. Thank you.
Answer: Not sure if most expensive, although with wine pairing it could be, but considered the best: Alinea. I think it was the only (or one of the few) US restaurant to make the Top 20 restaurants in the world. Probably can't get a reservation for a while.
It's sort of taken the glamor away from Charlie Trotter's, which is still a top restaurant and still uber expensive.
Both are "price fix" chef's choice (pre-determined menu), and it's best to do with the wine pairing (which also like doubles the bill). Both are a phenom experience, but Alinea is unlike anything else out there.

What is the current price for morel mushrooms?
Hello I found A bunch of Mushrooms this year in my woods and im planning on selling them because i have too much to eat!!! I would appreciate if you could help me figure out how much to sell them for THANKS!!!!!!
Answer: I saw a 1 oz. package of dried morels at Whole Foods the other day for around $25 - that's over $350 per pound. Saw fresh ones there once for $45 per pound.
Before you get dreams of making your living in the spring for a month or two collecting morels, you should check your local farmer's market. They often are selling morels during the springtime, and they go for anywhere from $15 to $25 or more per pound.
You could alternatively find a gourmet restaurant that deals in local foods, wild or cultivated (Charlie Trotter's in Chicago, for example), and see if they would be interested. You could possibly get more per pound, but would need to deliver it to a harder to reach area. Good luck.

Many places are famous for doing a particular food very well. How about your area? What is your famous food?
I am from Chicago and we are famous for several types of foods, from simple and cheap to the very high class and expensive. We have world famous restaurants here like Charlie Trotters and hot dog vendors who walk the streets with a large hot dog kart on wheels.
Our famous foods are stuffed pizza. Chicago style hot dogs and Polish sausages from Maxwell Street. Hot Italian beef sandwiches sometimes with Italian sausage and sweet peppers.
Answer: New England offers a wide variety of food depending on what area you're in. New England is famous for clambakes and seafood dishes. In Boston, there's Chef Jasper White's Seafood Shacks which offers a casual and friendly atmosphere and high quality seafood specialties.. There's also Legal Seafoods, ( a chain but good) which I've visited on several occasions when visiting Boston. I love Scrod so I always seek that dish out and have never been disappointed in it's taste or quality.
In many of the smaller towns in New England you'll find some pretty amazing cooks who prepare monthly suppers for their churches, to raise money. Often they will offer tasty and hearty homemade beans and ham ,and an assortment of pies.
Lots of variety in New England and loads of eateries to visit with varied price ranges.

What to wear to the Clubhouse Restaurant in Oak Brook, IL?
Im a city girl and very rarely venture out to the burbs for anything but Ive been invited to a dinner In Oak Brook at some place called The Clubhouse. Soooooo has anyone been there? What should I wear? Is it very posh like Tru or Charlie Trotters or just regular? HELP!
Answer: I've been to this restaurant more than 20 times, and I usually wear "business casual" attire (i.e. khaki pants and a button up shirt). My wife will usually wear dress slacks or a skirt and a nice shirt or sweater. People do wear jeans there, but I'd say make sure you wear nice jeans.
FYI...I recommend the tuscan sliders, chicken romano, or the seared tuna. They also have awesome spinach/artichoke dip as an appetizer.
