A modest proposal

So D and I just ate at a diner we like -- French toast for him, veggie burger for me. This is a seriously cheap diner -- you can get a large, filling meal for $5-$8. Anyway, applause broke out as we were eating. We looked up and saw a guy posed, very theatrically, on bended knee, facing a giggling girl. He held a ring box in his hand. A strategically-placed photographer snapped a picture.

D and I both wondered why he proposed there? It's the NYC equivalent of Bickford's or IHOP. We came up with a couple of theories:

1. It's their favorite place.

2. He figured she would really be surprised.

Proposing at IHOP...not exactly every woman's dream come true, but maybe he wanted a unique story to tell their friends and family.

I'm still waiting to find good places to eat around here. We were so excited to move to a place where they had "mom and pop" restaurants, but we discovered that they aren't very good. The search continues...

It's a little more attractive than IHOP, but the prices are in range ;)

Maybe that's where their first date was? If so, then I could find it appropriate.

He should have had the waitress put the ring on top of her Rooty Tooty Fresh n' Fruity. ;)

Did they toast with orange juice or coffee?

No toast, but lots of applause ;) Maybe some people informally toasted with their Rose Garden (a yogurt/strawberry drink).

Or maybe that's where they met?
