I average about $85/week for just me. I don't eat out often. I make everything pretty much from scratch and mostly eat vegetables, fruits, beans, legumes, and whole grains. Mostly organic. I do a winter and a summer CSA as well.
My rent is 17.5% of my pre-tax income. I live in NYC with roommates.

Maybe I've been lucky, but I've never had a problem in the three European countries I've visited in the last two years. All the places I went to were able to do both. Even small restaurants/bars.
@lizard For real. I had a friend once who was too hungover to eat and it was so uncomfortable for me to see her just sitting there with coffee. I kept offering her all my food.
@highjump I think they smell bite-sized ones, but it may only be available in large packs. I've seen them at work a few times.
Oh man! I work a few blocks away, but have been busy all day so I'm just seeing this now and have dinner plans. See ya next year. Happy billfoldiversary!
@lalaland I thought the same thing.
