Good it's about time there was information about food on the Internet

I was on vacation with some friends-of-friends, and made the mistake of letting them pick the restaurant. OK, we all had kids, that was kind of the reason we were on vacation -- school was out for the week.

We didn't realize that the family that picked the restaurant were this species called "foodie". Which meant they picked a restaurant that was #an "experience" #tiny portions #took forever #had no "kid food" options (remember, we all had kids with us), and #UNGODLY EXPENSIVE.

Reservations were for 7pm - already slightly late for kids. We didn't leave until 10:30.
The kids all split hamburgers, the closest thing to a "kid friendly" option. Goat meat or something. The kids all hated it. Even the desserts, usually an easy kid thing, we all... weird. Savory ice cream?
'That couple' were comparing the cocktail to something-something from the something-something-bar in San Francisco. Me: It's alcohol?
'That couple' were giddy about telling somebody about being there.
We split the huge check (about two day's worth of our food budget for one meal), then parted company, and we got snacks from the supermarket because we were still hungry.

People that like to cook and really enjoy food and its preperation are awesome fun to hang out with. I always learn something.

Foodies, on the other hand, I'd rather tie in a bag of broken glass and roll it down a hill.

You compounded it by not just saying "We can't eat here, we have children" and leaving. You had that option but didn't exercise it, and now you are a martyr to politeness.

Foodies are the next frontier?

Do you think they should be violated, subby?

Foodies are the worst kind of people. "Look at me! I'm trendy!"

Foodies should not be setting food policy.

Just no.  It's bad enough already.

Foodies are proof that America is not suffering from the 1% as some people seem to believe. The fact we have a cultural 'trend' group of people devoted to food tells me that the 1% know exactly how to placate the rest of us.
