Since we are in that interminable period between spring and fall practices, please indulge me. I am not from Ohio or have ever spent more then a few days in a row there. I do dine out with friends from Ohio fairly frequently and they always, I mean always ask for separate checks. Even in "upscale" restaurants. It isn't that they need to watch every dollar either. For Ohioans and non- Ohions both, is this strictly a state thing? Or is it common to other parts of the Midwest? Thanks.
