Happenings on and around OpenTable…
* We’re celebrating the 100 restaurants that have won 2011 Diners’ Choice Awards for Best American Fare. Find out if your favorite is among the honorees.
* On Thanksgiving, leave the cooking — and the dishes — to someone else and dine out!
* Dining out was a big part of my parents’ social lives in New York City, and they saved a lot of matchbooks from their favorite restaurants. As a result, I have a pretty nifty collection, which includes Maxwell’s Plum and Toots Shor’s. While many restaurants have stopped printing matchbooks, some still do. It got me to wondering, “Should restaurants give out matchbooks?” Vote in our poll.
