Diners to waiters: Bag it!

One of the more euphemistic terms in the restaurant business is "doggy bag." Both waiter and customer know that leftover food ends up in the microwave more often than in Fido's bowl. And more Americans are exiting restaurants with brown bags than ever before. A new survey by American Demographics magazine indicates that nearly two-thirds of Americans take their leftovers home. The reason? Restaurants have increased the size of portions to attract patrons. Enough to share with Fido, perhaps?
