Parents: jealous and angry gods (when you ignore them for too long). Sure, you can appease them with a sacrificial dinner or brunch, but the Plaza seems too cliché. So take them to 17th and Summit. This leafy microdistrict is the quaint, folksy European arthouse film to the Plaza's Transformers 3. Buy your folks crepes at Chez Elle Creperie and Coffee House; make them taste the France they keep putting off visiting. Take them to Blue Bird Bistro, Westside Local and Füd to show them the joy of local food after too many nights at Applebee's. Buy them bread at Fervere. Do this for them, because if they pick up the tab, you'll also be doing this for yourself.
