Book those reservations, ladies, Dine About Town starts this Saturday. Whether you're heading out for a hot date or good times with the girls, top off your fabulous dinner with live comedy at the 10th Annual SF Sketchfest. Sketchfest 2011 kicks off today, with the hilarious Neil Patrick Harris,Candice Bergen and Dan Aykroyd heading-up this year's talent. 

Surely saving a buck on dinner while supporting the arts validates a new outfit, right? We've put together the perfect mix of quirky-cute for this fun evening with a red boatneck dress, an elegant vintage-chic coat and playful cheetah print wedges.

A Field Guide to Dine About Town

That the Dine About Town is clearly a publicity stunt to drive traffic to restaurants during their slowest months (January and July, when people are in post-holiday literal and figurative belt-tightening or when they're at the beach) doesn't mean that it's not a good idea. But is it really a deal? I have a problem at restaurants, and I know I'm not alone: I like to have cocktails or wine with dinner. I like to leave a nice tip when service is good. So even though a $34.95 three-course meal is a relative bargain, there's no way I'm getting in and out for under $50 bucks.
