just take it in a take out bag. i always have to do this, and i don't feel bad or uncouth for doing so. i am not going to literally throw money in the garbage, and the food is just as good the next day. sometimes when i get a really nice meal i ask a homeless person if they want the other half and i have never been met by an angry face.
