Sharkeez is a different sort of place which is kind of difficult to classify. The best it can be described as is a bar and grill during the day, but at night it is a hot spot for meeting people. Sharkeez is mostly geared towards young professionals, but pretty much anyone fits in there. Sharkeez has a very diverse menu consisting of mostly American and Mexican food. Everything from Char-Roasted sandwiches to fish tacos can be enjoyed at Sharkeez.

Islands is one of my favorite places to eat at. The restaurant specializes in gourmet burgers but with a Hawaiian theme. Yes, even the servers wear those great colorful Hawaiian shirts that I love so much.

Whether you do it only once or make a tradition, it certainly says you care. The cost of this Thank you depends on where you go to eat. Diners and cafeterias are more pocket-friendly whereas fancy restaurants will cost a pretty penny.
