Central District for tonight with caveats

seattledebs | May 6, 2008 10:35 AM

Okay, my brain is stuck. I'm trying to get people together for a birthday dinner tonight (Tuesday May 6, 2008) in the Central District, and it's starting to feel so much like herding cats that maybe I should just settle on dishes of cream and tuna for dinner. Sigh.

I'm looking for something that will be tasty and inexpensive, and I'm stuck on what. The problem: my original idea was Ethiopian food, but the plan is to go blues dancing afterwards, and someone pointed out that strong-smelling food you eat with your hands and close partner dancing are probably a bad combination.

I'm looking for something in the Central District (not too far from 12th/Cherry). I'd like something inexpensive (or with a significant number of inexpensive entree options), since I have friends who are students or underemployed. I don't want Tamarind Tree, because I always feel funny after eating there (sugar? MSG? I have no idea). I don't think I'm in the mood for Chinese. And I don't want a diner/burgers kind of place.

Which means I'm stuck, unless I just tell people to bring toothbrushes and wash their hands before dancing, and get over it. Other brilliant ideas? Anyone?
