Thanks to a reader for sending word about the Shaw Bijou update from the Washington Post:

“The Shaw Bijou, 1544 Ninth St. NW. Opens Nov. 1 for dinner. 5:30 to 10 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday. $185 tickets go on sale Monday via Tock.”

That would be $185 not including drinks. The reader included one word with the email: “Oof.”

So, Friday Question of the Day – here we are: How much would you spend per person at a restaurant? Presumably for many this would be a splurge so what would warrant the loosening of the purse strings? A very special birthday like a 25th, 30th, 40th etc.? New job? Anniversary? The Nationals win the World Series?

Ed. Note: We had an interesting more general FQotD last year talking about How Much do you Budget/Spend per week on Food?
