This was no exception! The place was loaded with loaded ‘personalities’ … Tomata served ice-cream, potato salad, and p-nut butter sandwhiches. The decor was charming, too. Streamers fashioned from the yellow-pages, making the place look like the cocoanut grove in it’s hey-day. Very rowdy sphaghetti fight in the kitchen. Damages estimated at: $78,000,060.54…” -Pleasant Geham
