Not About Food 24

when the person needing to use their indoor voice just possibly *could* be a chowhound...

Hubby and I are in Vegas, so of course after the long drive from Reno we had to unwind by eating at LOS. (A quick side note: chowfind on the way down: check out the place that sells Jerky in Beatty. Great home-made jerky..especially the sweet-spicy. Not cheap, but good jerky never is...great road food. You can't miss it: look for the huge sign that says "JERKY")....anyway, dinner was great as usual (Our stated goal is to eat our way through the menu, never eating the same thing twice.) But this isn't about the food. There was a group sitting near us who were talking so LOUD that everyone in the restaurant I'm sure knew their entire life stories. I could tell you their dog's name, and what he likes to eat (apparently he doesn't eat dog food...). And its hard to be so loud that your voices are really noticed in a busy place like LOS. I was reminded of the posts about the "indoor voices." But what bothered me most was the loud discussion of the menu items, and one of the group who was telling the others all about the restaurant. Enough was said (and overheard) that I realized it is possible she learned about the place from this website. As soon as I realized that, I resisted my earlier impulse to say something to somebody (waiter? the party themselves?) about the noise....I was afraid a post would show up here talking about what a great dinner they had, except for the person who insisted on interfering with their good time by asking for a little more quiet in what is usually a crowded and not quiet restaurant....So, folks, should I have said anything? Is there any other way to subtly tell someone to tone it down a bit.....
