"As Close to Heaven as the Suburbs Get"

I am not that in to most suburban streets—I’m more of a city gal, but I love N. Main Street. The little outdoor mall—Broadway Plaza, is great. The Eats right by the corner of Mount Diablo are fantastic—a China Bistro, CPK, a Sushi place, a Mediterean place and a Mexican place. Further down there are also some pricier Italian places, but by far the best joint is Tomatina’s, affordable and yummy—I used to meet up with my high school posse there.

Parking, if you can’t find it for free, is inexpensive. There is a very good Barnes and Noble there (free parking underneath if its not full), a nice though busy Starbuck’s, a ballet studio where my best friend spent years practicing her plie’s and jete’s. The highlight of the street, for me, however, are two shoe stores—Foot Candy and Deliciousz! Oh, if only I still had my paralegal job!
