I know that the Mastersaid "There is no private house, (said he,) in which people can enjoy themselves so well, as at a capital tavern," and I see the point, but I had a good dinner tonight and sat at the table finishing my wine as my family got up and went about their evenings (or "up and went about their evenings"), and I felt superior to fine dining establishments. I was doing nothing for a moment; and to do nothing at a restaurant is to make a spectacle of yourself.
