When you go out for chow, it doesn't always have to be with somebody, sometimes it's kind of nice to have a few minutes to yourself. Here are a few places to get quality lunch by yourself, without getting looks of pity.
Remember the ending of the movie "A Christmas Story" where the family had to settle for duck at an oriental cafe because it was the only place open? I remember a holiday far worse than that! Years ago when my wife and I had all of our family members snowed in at their homes and all we could enjoy was a can of Sparks and some beef jerky from the convenience store
If you don't consume the holiday required minimum of one plate of corned beef & cabbage and one Irish Car Bomb, then you may as well not wear green and get yourself pinched to death while you're at it.
