All I Need is a Walker

There is a really, really good barbecue place only a few blocks from where I live. And by "good," I mean really addictively good. The only problem is that other people know about it now--lots and lots of other people--and it's insanely crowded at all manner of hours. So Christopher and I have taken to going for what we call "geriatric dinner" around...4:30. It is slightly embarrassing to show up when 85-year-olds eat dinner but there is certainly no shame in being the first to get to the limited quantities of mac and cheese, am I right?

LOVE your top and matching shoes and purse sweetie! such fun colors!!

No shame--Jake and I eat around 5:00 every single night. Something about that work schedule of getting up before 7 and to sleep around 10 just makes geriatric dinnertime work...

Julie said...

I have that clutch, too!! I love it! I am not ashamed of the fact that I have gone to places with super yummy food at oddball hours to beat the rush. When it comes to food, there is no shame in my game!!! ; )

That is awesome. Gotta do what you have to in order to score amazing food sometimes! I love that dress....almost picked it up at Tarjay the other day but am crossing my fingers & toes hoping it will go on the sale rack soon! I just can't bring myself to buying full priced clothing anymore.

We just got a Freebirds in my town, and the line is ridiculous - my coworker and I just said that we were going to plan on getting our burritos at 10:30 am to avoid the lunch crowd...can't see anything wrong with what you're doing ;)
Love this dress every time I see it - especially enjoy seeing how EVERYone wheres it in such different ways!

Mmmm BBQ, I just discovered a pretty good place close to my house.

Love the dress and how you styled it. Simple, yet fashionable.

We eat supper at 4:30 almost every night! I love it. Because then when 8 p.m. rolls around, I'm ready for ice cream, cookies or s'mores!

wildchild said...

you look so pretty in that dress with your hair like that :)

Jess said...

Totally worth going that early. My fiance and I do that all the time. Usually means better service too.
Also, as usual love the outfit :)

Liz said...

You always look adorable in this dress! The colors look fantastic on you and the yellow shoes are just darling.

Frannie Pantz said...

Geriatric dinner? Ha ha! You crack me up. I love your yellow flats also.

Krista said...

When mac 'n cheese is on the line, I say eat it early and get all you can. I always eat around 4 or 5...mostly because I love food and can't wait to eat dinner every night.

I've loved that dress since you first posted about it! I like how you paired it with the yellow flats. Unfortunately yellow is NOT a good color on me, even though I love it so.... perhaps I could pull it off on shoes!

The last year I've taken to going to bed on Friday nights by 11pm. You're doing just fine :-)

There's no shame in an early dinner! I also just saw someone wearing that dress this morning, and all I could think was, "hey! That's Tania's dress!"

Bridget said...

love the outfit. andddd maybe you should get AARP subscription too?

jk of course.

Jenn said...

I love your outfit!! And if there's limited quantities of Mac and Cheese then you must go early enough to get some! No shame in that! :)

Elaine said...

You look beautiful!!!
The best part about eating dinner at 4:30 is second dinner at 8.

Eclectic Flair said...

You look absolutely lovely in this dress, Tania!

Nothing wrong with a little early dinner to beat the crowds...specially when it includes Mac & Cheese!

Haha if you've gotta go at that time, you've gotta go.

I guess I am a total nerd too 'cuz I would totally wear that ;) You rock that dress, girlie!!

Hannah said...

Such a colorful outfit! The flats are so cute; I want a pair of my own!

And oh, the things we'll do to get delicious food. Better to have eaten awesome barbeque with a strangely much older crowd than to have never eaten at all.

tasty moog said...

i do the same thing for my favorite places, go to dinner before 6pm. and, a popular brunch place in our 'hood gets frequented by us right when they open at 8am. i don't like waiting for my food!

sartoriography said...

There is no ounce of shame, girl, when macaroni is involved. That's all there is to it. And who can be ashamed when she looks so good, anyway? :)

Anonymous said...

I just started reading your blog, and I absolutely love it! Your outfits are fantastic!

What Would a Nerd Wear said...

anonymous--wow, thank you so much!! that's so sweet of you to say, i will glow with pride all evening now :)

kenzi said...

Nope ... like Seth (from The OC) once said, you should embrace your inner old person. Early dinners, early nights, great excuse to do nothing (ie being old) ...

Katie W... said...

Whenever I visit my mom we do geriatric dinner. I kind of love it!

Between Laundry Days said...

Hey, there ain't no shame in enjoying tasty meats... ;-)
