Due to poor economy, we will be dining out but not at a restaurant. Instead, it's a pot luck at another family member's home.

It's far cheaper to eat when you don't go to restaurants. No poor service to fuss over, no tips to pay, and you can ask the chef for the recipe.

well.. you should tell him that it ain't right that you're always cooking so unless if he's preparing the x-mas dinner then buffet it is! ;)

btw, Thinking buffet too.

We always go to my parents, my mom cooks the turkey and we all bring the sides... makes it a lot easier on everyone. When the turkey comes out of the oven we just heat all the rest of the food up, its the practical way to go.

I think it would be weird going out for dinner on christmas. And living in a smaller city, there probably arent many places you could go out to eat.
That's my 2cents worth

Mandarin is the way to go even though its not really for the holidays,
at least you get unlimited food and deserts and for a cheap price.
Also they have pretty good beverages.
