    Re: Are these sentences correct? Please help

    A better title for this thread would have been Busy bars and restaurants.

    1) Usually my restaurant is quiet at lunch time but business picks up in the evening.

    2) Business is usually slow on weekdays for most of the restaurants in this town.

    3) What night is the busiest for this bar?

    4) On what night does this bar get crowded?

    5) This bar is busy/happening on what/which night? This construction does not sound natural.

    Rover, please answer my questions;

    1. Why would you change slow with quiet? When a business is slow, doesn't it mean the same thing that the business is quiet? What I'm asking you is that they both refer to the business is not as busy.

    2. This bar is busy/happening on what/which night? Would this sentence sound more natural if I ask "Which nights of the week this bar gets busy?"

    1. Business is slow but the restaurant is quiet.

    2. 'On which nights of the week does this bar get busy?'
