As a few friends and I visited our other friend in San Jose, we had a hard time deciding where we were going to eat lunch. Finally, after many suggestions, we picked to eat at the first restaurant we saw: Red Robin. When we first walked in, I was surprised that there weren't customers waiting in line especially since it was around lunch time. However, I wasn't complaining. We were able to get our table quickly and order exactly what we wanted in less than thirty minutes all together.

(December 12, 1918 – March 29, 1999) was a well-known jazz vocalist, a baritone singing a mixture of blues, ballads, popular songs, and jazz standards.
He was born Joseph Goreed in the small farming town of Cordele, Georgia, on December 12, 1918. His father, Willie Goreed, left the family early on, but Williams' mother, Anne Beatrice Gilbert, who was 18 when she had her only child, provided a strong emotional bond until her death in 1968. Soon after Williams was born, his mother moved them in with his grandparents, who had enough money to support an extended family. During this time, Anne Gilbert was saving for a move to Chicago. Once she had made the move — alone — she began saving the money that she earned cooking for wealthy Chicagoans so that her family could join her. By the time Williams was four, he, his grandmother, and his aunt had joined his mother in Chicago, where they would live for many years.
