Everyone keeps saying that dining in is a better option to dining out, and for most of the year, this is true. Holidays, however, are a different story. Gathering at a restaurant with family during the holidays is better than eating in, and DeSimone’s Steakhouse is here to show you why.
Avoid the Holiday Shopping Center Rush
Anyone who’s ever been grocery shopping during the November and December months knows it can be a struggle. Empty shelves, long lines and crammed parking lots are just hints at the holiday shopping fiasco. Meeting your family at a favorite restaurant allows all of you to avoid this ordeal and still enjoy a pleasant meal together.
Hosting a Gathering Can be StressfulIdeally, everyone who comes to a family get-together contributes equally to the effort. Unfortunately, hosts of the gathering tend to carry most of the weight of the endeavor. Preparing the house for guests, making food and cleaning up afterwards can all lead to an exhausted host. Going out to eat is much easier on everyone involved, as it simply involves showing up.
No Cleanup AfterwardsEven if the host isn’t left with all the cleanup, cleaning up is no fun for anyone involved. After you’ve indulged in your scrumptious holiday feast, the last thing you feel like doing is cleaning up the dining area and kitchen. Getting together to eat at a restaurant completely alleviates this obnoxious yet inevitable chore and allows you to completely give in to your food-induced coma.
Everyone Gets the Food They WantWhile everyone in your family might be bringing their own dish to your potluck-style gathering, some of your guests may have certain food restrictions. A cousin may have a dairy allergy; a niece could be trying out a gluten-free diet; an uncle might be vegan. Whatever their restrictions may be, it means that they more than likely cannot indulge in most of the foods offered at your family meal. At a restaurant, each family member can order whatever dish they like, catered to their specific dietary needs and preferences.
Focus on the Family, Not the FoodWhile it may be traditional to spend holidays at home with the family making home-cooked meals, more and more people are beginning to catch on to the idea that dining out actually gives you more time to focus on your family. Preparing meals at home for the whole family is incredibly time consuming. And while you may all be under one roof, you might not really be getting to spend the quality time together that you’d like. Try going out to eat together over the holidays for a change, and see if it lets you focus more on your family, and less on your food.
