    Since I am a Taurus and love food (although other signs may indulge a bit I think I am a great appreciator!) I think of the dining hall (in my mind's eye of my vision of community) as that center.

    And there is something about breaking bread together that helps people bond together.

      I am a Taurus too.  Yep, love of food is our common trait.  LOL

      of a common dining hall is definitely true.  Look at the gatherings of the various dkos meetups.  Every one of them involves breaking bread together.  

      I am a fan of the Tedeschi Trucks Band.  I have read that one of the things the band does when they get together at Susan (Tedeschi) and Derek (Trucks) home studio for practice or recording sessions is that they eat dinner together family style.

        just between you and me, that it is important that a community bonds together like a family and families do better when they eat together often.
