Haley the Intern’s Guide to Prom Dining 2014

Stressing prom? Haley the Intern understands.  So, she’s offering her fellow high school students a quick and easy “Where to Eat Guide for Prom 2014!”  Look!From Haley the Intern:

I have had my stressed out moments while gearing up for prom. So many decisions, but I’m here to help with one of those major decisions. Where to eat? On a tight budget or willing to spend that extra cash for a meal fit for a king? My list will go in order from most expensive to the cheapest meals.

1. The Miller House

This restaurant will  make you feel like you’re dining like royalty for cheaper than you’d expect. Expect to pay at least $25 per person and make a reservation in advance! I love this restaurant because every time I go there I can order something different and never be let down. Going here may be pricier than what some of you want to pay but the only way you will leave dissatisfied is if you eat yourself to the point of a food baby.

2. Colby’s

Depending on what you order the prices here can range from $15-$25 per person. I love this restaurant, because it’s downtown and in walking distance of the river, so you and your significant other can go walking through Smothers Park while before prom starts. I also love the food and atmosphere at Colby’s. Picky eater or not, you’ll find something that sounds good on their menu.

3. Olive Garden

I’m a big fan of this restaurant because it’s a place to have a nice sit down meal without getting too fancy and expensive meals can cost anywhere from $8.99-$18.99, but I’ve never paid over $16 here. This is a great place to feel like you and your date have some privacy and get great service.

4. Cheddars

This is a great place if both you and your date are picky eaters and don’t want to go broke for a meal. Expect to spend about $15 per person, give or take a few bucks. Food’s good and cheap, can it get any better?

5. Wasabi

This restaurant is newer and gives great service with low prices.  Expect to pay around $12 per person. I highly suggest their hibachi chicken, it’s my favorite. This place may look a little rough around the edges by the exterior but remember, never judge a book by its cover. Once you walk inside, you’ll love the layout and atmosphere.

I hope this helps some of you! I’m a senior this year at Owensboro High School so I understand exactly what you’re going through. Remember, make your reservations in advance! If you don’t call at least a week and a half before prom you may not be able to eat where you want to eat and no one wants that! (especially your girlfriends, boys! An angry girlfriend is never a fun one!) Also remember, ladies, keep it classy and boys, act like gentlemen! I hope you all have  and be safe!
