Social Dilemma-Should There Be A Dress Code for Nice Restaurants?

posted by Jaime Roberts - 

Today's social dilemma happened after I went out to eat for my birthday to a really nice restaurant here in the Capital Region.  It was the Black and Blue over on Western Avenue in Albany.  Now this is a nice restaurant.   I had never been there, but it was clear that it was a place that required a little more dressing up than I usually do.  So I dressed up a bit.   And you know me, I'm not a dress up kind of girl, but when you go to a nice place, you dress the part.   So we're in there and getting ready to order and our table just happens to be in a place where I can see people coming in the door.    And as more and more people are coming in, I see that they're dressed in all kinds of clothes.  Some men have baseball hats on and they're not taking them off, women are wearing ripped jeans.  Yes, they're the kind that you buy ripped, but still.    Others are wearing short shorts.   Now again, I'm no prude and I'm the last person to give fashion advice to anyone, but it just didn't seem right to me.  That you would come to a nice place, that isn't inexpensive by the way, and dress like that.  So I asked the waitress and she said they preferred that people get dressed nicely but they won't turn anyone away.  I don't know, maybe I'm old fashioned but I thought getting dressed nicely was the way to go.  So let me know, am I wrong about this.  And it's okay if I am.  I'll still dress nicely when I go to a place like that.  What do you think?  Is it no longer a requirement to dress nicely when going to a nice place?  Please tell me on the 98-3 TRY Facebook page.
