  1. What about restaurants open for Christmas dinner! There are seniors and young people who for various reasons would prefer or have to do that.

    See if you can make up a list before tomorrow. I know there are not too many.

  2. Thanks a lot for the recommendations! Really excited to check out what’s good in those places. I don’t think I am going to have enough time to visit all of them but the one I want to visit the most is Ainslie. I’ve heard so many nice things about it that I just can’t resist and will definitely go there. I was deciding between Ainslie and a few other ones that are not on the list, but thanks to your advice I’ve finally made my decision! Thank you again and hope to see you there as well! I hope I still have time to make a reservation!
