Quite often I will have to go out to dinner with colleagues. The choice of food often ends up being something that I hate. It often the new "Ethiopian" restaurant or the "Polish-Mexican" bistro. It drives me crazy. Any descenting opinion and it makes you seem "unenlightened". Lately, we all agreed to go someplace a bit more neutral. I am not sure why Americans always feel the need to be trendy and try the most ridiculous cuisine. What's funny is that I do like a variety of food but I am not driven to push the envelope of exotic (weird?) food at every opportunity.
