  1. Most definitely it's okay at Playground. I can't speak to Chapter One.

    1. lol, yes, you can wear pretty much literally whatever you want to the Playground.

      Once you go to the Playground, you will have a good chuckle at yourself for even asking this =)

      Chapter One is probably the same way.

        No, that's certainly not true.

        They might kick you out if you wore a tux.

        I know they would at Chapter One.

          What makes you think that? Have you actually seen them kick someone out wearing a tux?

          I've worn a t-shirt and shorts there before, and I've worn fairly formal attire.

          Seems like you can put on anything at the Playground, so long as you love food.

              Ah...

              Ok.

              Sorry.

              It seems like a lot of people will go to any length to discredit anything I say on these forums, so I never know when anyone is joking.

                I thought it was a relaxed place? ;)

      2. The dress code for both is "please wear clothes".

        Jeans are absolutely fine. I've even worn shorts to Playground. This is Orange County, there are precious few restaurants where jeans and a nice shirt would be out of place.

            I think you meant:

            "This is Orange County, there are precious few restaurants where shorts and flip-flops would be out of place."

            lol

            Orange County is many things, but formal is not one of them. I wonder if there is anywhere in the world that disregards formality more than OC? It's hard to imagine.

              It used to be, several years ago, the Ritz Carlton Dana Point was more formal than it is now.
              Shoes were required in the lobby, a dress shirt and tie was required while dining in the formal dining room and something went haywire when they started attracting tourists who think nothing of going barefoot with no shirt throughout the entire property.

                Sad that RC used to be a very nice place when it first opened.

                Unfortunately it's getting harder to find people with any sense of etiquette or class these days.
