What time do you all eat dinner?

I have always been curious/entertained how other people eat. Just wondering what time an average weekday dinner is and what time you go to bed. It seems like some people can eat at 8PM and can sleep comfortably by 9PM while others eat a 5:30PM and go to bed at 11:30PM. What's your pattern?

  1. Dinner sometime 7:30 (early) to 9, bed by 11. We ate really early tonight, around 7.

    Left to my own devices, I'll often be making dinner at 10:30.

    1. weekdays, usually between 18:30 and 19:00
      saturday, it depends if I have people over, if that happens, it will be around 20h
      sunday, I eat a bigger breakfast/brunch so I only snack.


      1. Usually between 7-8. I go to bed between mindnight-1.

        If I make a dinner reservation for a weeknight it's usually 7 or 7:30; weekends it's 8 or 8:30.

        1. I usually eat dinner around 9 - 10, and go to bed around midnight.

          1. With Mrs. O working downtown and usually getting to Pasadena sevenish, we generally shoot for 8:00. That gives us time to eat in the den and watch one of our TIVO'd shows, since the ones we like don't come on live until around our bedtime, or a movie or series on DVD. Sometimes when Mrs. O has a project of her own in production, especially if it's close to deadline, she'll ask me to shoot for 9:00 or even 9:30. When we eat out that's usually around 8:00 too.
