OK! that's it ... no more tea shops; we have a million of them. Oh, sorry, not really - just kidding; tea is good for you! But tonight I was in RWC Bubble & Wrap - totally crowded, full of people; families, techies, Seniors, kids .... It was a great, warm night for beer, ice cream, street-front dining at terrific, eclectic restaurants ...
