and my wife doesn't understand why I'm reluctant to pick the dining establishment ...

i pick the restaurant, i just usually don't pick anything so offensive or hideous as "wing hoes" (i would be too afraid of accidentally looking at a hoe...gardening is a PRIVATE fetish in my house, for she and i only)

I want to visit all 3 of those restaurants.

Because my wife and I get too focused on whatever we're doing at the moment, we're usually not hungry when we're supposed to be. So when we do go out, we usually have to take turns sniping down choices till we both arrive at one we can live with. Lots faster than the old method of spending a half-hour trying to find one that sounded appealing.

Sounds like my wife and me trying to decide what movie to watch...cept I'm the difficult one.

My wife often wonders why I this is a standard conversation:
Her: "What do you want to eat?"
Me: "Food."
Her: "What kind, ass?"
Me: "The kind you eat."

Jiggly Mcsickfingers, I find it interesting you emphasize the phrase "PRIVATE fetish" but yet you are announcing it online. Granted, there's such a thing as Internet courage, and we can't really track you down, or pass rumors, but still.

isn't "private fetish" a little redundant?

You don't understand: Jiggly has set himself up as the 5th panel. He's usually funny. Usually

I'm not sold on Rex's Rib Round-Up, but I want to go to the other two. Wing Hoes especially is just enjoyably upfront about its business model - hot wings and hot women. How can it go wrong?

at the end, we finish eating some pizza that was like a month in the freezer.....

Perfect system: one person chooses 3 establishments, and the other picks from the list. If all 3 are unacceptable, than they must pick 3 and have the other choose.

Three is too hard. One makes a suggestion, and the other can only veto it if the other has another suggestion. Descriptions of what you're in the mood for can help.
"What would you like to eat?"
"What kind?"
"Hot food."
"How about [Thai food place]?"
"Bleh, Thai food. I meant temperature hot. How about [pizza place]?"
"No, that is not the #1 pizza place in the world and therefore I will just be disappointed. How about [steak place with the 2-for-1 coupon]?"
"Sounds good."
