What should I do in Palo Alto tomorrow?

I'm going to Palo Alto/Menlo Park tomorrow. I'm going to have an afternoon to kill by myself -- if I only have one afternoon, what should I do, and where should I eat in the South Bay Area?

I don't have any plans between tomorrow morning (when my flight lands) and Friday, so I'll have a decent chunk of time to myself.
I've been to San Francisco a few times, and (think) I've seen most of the major sights. On the other hand, I've never been to the South Bay, and I'm having trouble figuring out what I should do out there.... If these towns are really just bleak suburbs, I suppose I can catch Caltrain into the city.
My interests are pretty broad -- generally, if Metafilter finds something awesome, so do I. Because that's not terribly descriptive, I like: Art, tech-y things, nice parks, scenic bike rides, good food of just about any kind, good coffee, cool bookstores, etc.... What are the highlights that I should see if I only have one afternoon in the area?
I won't have a rental car with me, but I do have a Zipcar membership.
