There are lots of cool little diners in the area. Indeed, diners and Dunkin' Donuts seem to account for a disproportionately large percentage of local caloric intake. And yet the populace is --by and large-- slender. Curious. Cheese, beer, and ice cream are also important local players, factors which could have --and HAVE, in the midwest-- led to a girthsome citizenry heaving to and fro like so many perambulatory manatees. Yet here, not so much. They are liberal, by and large, perhaps they fret the pounds away over nonsense. As opposed to retaining fat out of hubris. The politics of lard! :)
I haven't eaten at any of these cool little diners, by the way. I'm being cheap and preparing alpo out of cans and ruining fruit pods and stuff to get my sustenance.
