TALK TO PEOPLE!!! And take a pen and paper. Those are nice too.
I just ate at Candle Cafe on 75th and 3rd in Manhattan. Thanks to a new friend for the tip! My sandwich and wine were amazing. I also got to talking to a woman named Michelle who gave me some good suggestions for new places.
I’ll be adding more this weekend, but I just had to put this out there. As a sociologist, I’m all about the macro-level analysis of social behaviour. There’s something, though, about talking to a person one on one. If someone’s food looks good, just ask them what it is!
