How do I enjoy my nights out with my hearing loss?
Plan ahead: go online and look at the menu and reviews about the food and the AMBIANCE. Open Table is a great example of using this information. Make reservations to request being seated in a location removed from excessive noise, like in a booth or outdoor patio. Dining in off-peak hours can minimize the chances of a crowded and noisy restaurant. Ask for a written list of specials. If the server is reciting to the table, ask them to come stand near you to recite the specials. Ask your friends for recommendations for those hidden gems for a tranquil meal.
