    This is one of the most practical pieces of advice I've seen on this board!

    I do this too... seems like it's becoming more common .. or I'm now going to restaurants where the waitstaff doesn't roll their eyes if you don't order a drink! I can never finish the cold drink anyway. emoticon

    We have also started doing this an ice tea at 2-3 dollars we have a family of 5, a beer 6-7 dollars, this cuts 10-20 off our bill

    I agree, I only order water with lemon wedge when I go out.
