    last minute help needed!!!

    2 weeks ago I promised my wife I would make reservations for a good restaurant on NYE. Needless to say I f'd up and forgot. None of the good restaurants in the Des Moines metro like centro and splash have anything left. Does anyone have any suggestions that can prevent me from sleeping on the couch to start 2013?

    TIA

    Is she the type that would go for "I wanted to make you dinner"? AND you wash the dishes.

    Dollar menu it up. Tell her you're trying to save money for her birthday gift. And then don't forget her birthday.

    What about Irena's? I thought that was fairly upscale.

    Tell her she is so special that you instead will take her out this weekend for a two nighter in a local hotel. You could also buy airline tickets to San Diego.
