As for just sitting around and listening, I chose convo as a place to do this. Naturally when you go in there to eat at a busy time there is a commotion as the loud crowd lines up to get food. I heard chairs moving, eating utensils hitting plates, glasses clanking. Sometimes you could hear the food sizzling if you were close enough to whatever was being prepared. Once an awhile a unique laugh would rise out of the continuous drone and catch my attention. The register would beep to acknowledge that someone has used a meal plan, and if they were running low it would beep a few more times.
