A note on tomatoes

A good tomato is such a treat. Supermarket tomatoes usually fail to qualify as good straight out of the produce aisle. In case you have not figured this out yet, you can dramatically improve a grocery store tomato by letting it sit in a sunny window sill for a few days. It will turn redder and sweeter. They must pick those things practically green otherwise the tomatoes would be rotten after travelling by train from California. Or do they take American Airlines?

Random question I figured you might have a good answer to: I'm looking for a quiet spot with a bar to go for drinks this Monday night. It doesn't matter if it is a restaurant, but I'd specifically like to find a cozy place for two to have some drinks and just relax. Preferrably quiet, definitely don't want the college-drinking crowd there.

Any suggestions? :)
