I have some younger cousins staying with me for a week or so. They're in their early 20's and haven't quite developed a discerning taste yet. What does this mean? It means that usually their choices are more influenced by quantity rather than quality, leaving me in a bit of a quandary when I take them out too eat.

I thought about this for a bit and came up with a possible compromise. Many restaurants offer up specials on their menu on certain days of the week. These specials offer up some decent food at an excellent value. For example, the burgers at Murph's Pub on Mondays, 1410 Bier Haus on 17th Ave has their pizza special on Tuesdays and the former Block Sixteen had a steak special on Wednesdays. I doubt any restaurant would have any specials for Fridays or Saturdays, but you never know either.

Does anything else come to mind? Hopefully, this will help me avoid the fast-food chains and also expose my younger family members to better dinig establishments. Thanks!
