Tom Schwartz shares how the plants are doing at Schwartz and Sandy’s

Although Tom’s home plants are thriving, the same can’t be said about the greenery at his bar, Schwartz and Sandy’s, which he co-owns with Tom Sandoval.

“The plants at Schwartz and Sandy’s haven’t been doing so great. I got to be honest,” he admitted in defeat. “People forget to put them in the sunlight and water them.”

While those plants aren’t getting the best attention from Tom’s staff, he took full ownership of the situation, saying, “I got them there, so I’m kind of responsible for the life.”

He concluded about the defunct plants: “I’m having some guilt pains – they aren’t doing so good.”
