My husband and I haven't been downtown to eat much the past few years because we have had little kids. Today my sister randomly asked if our kids could spend the night with her this weekend, and my mother-in-law invited them to stay with her overnight mid-January. We're hoping to make the most of these opportunities. We're looking for suggestions of great places to go on Friday nights without a lot of notice. We're open to suggestions for brunch/lunch on Saturday as well. It's been a while since I've paid attention to what places are popular these days, and the names I know seem to be already booked for this weekend.
Thanks in advance for your suggestions!
