    Does fish and chips at the beach count? I eat out maybe once every few months, can't afford to do it more often.

    generally 3-4 times per week. Sometimes more. And that's really just dinner and sometimes lunch on the weekends.

    Once a month maybe twice a month. I know how to cook and I am not above using cheap convenience products like Ramen,precooked sausage patties, canned vegetables and other stuff.

    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    I eat out on a relatively daily basis. Cooking for one sucks and is a waste of time.

    Usually 1-2 nights a week will be some sort of food-like substance I throw in a crock pot, plug in, and turn on while I'm asleep or at work the next day. Any other time, my meals come with sauce and ketchup packets.

    I couldn't answer the poll because I only eat out once a month if that. Working at multiple restaurants when I was young ruined me so I try to avoid eating out if possible.
    I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on whats being proposed here, hed agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute. - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

    I would consider lunches to be valid, since I eat out for lunch 5x a week, but otherwise, we do eat out (or bring in outside food), probably 2-3x per week. When you have busy schedules and lots of people doing lots of things, there just isn't time to cook many nights.
    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.

    I buy lunch at work once a week and usually eat out with friends on weekends once. So if we count lunch, twice a week.

    When i had real time (not counting my time spent on this site), i would eat out around three times per week.
    It is not very unreasonable that the rich should contribute to the public expense, not only in proportion to their revenue, but something more than in that proportion.

    I find this hard to believe if it truly is evening dining. Even the retired folks in my area probably dine out once a week at the most. I wasn't area people had this kind of extra money during the present state of the economy.

    Perhaps my region of the country is different than the rest?
    I eat out maybe once month. It's too expensive to eat out more often than that ...

    Hopefully you didn't see partially eaten salads recycled off of plates like my wife did when she worked at a restaraunt! I've heard if one only knew what gets dropped on the floor and picked back up!

    I once got severely ill at a Holiday Inn restaurant within 5 minutes of eating a hamburger. I was ill for several days -- puking and the other end. It was a board meeting and strangely this was an extra hamburger no one ordered. No one else got sick. It was a taxidermy board meeting and have to wonder if someone in the kitchen was an animal rights activist or something.
