You Know the Economy Is In The Shitter When...

...there was no line whatsoever at Tartine when I was there 20 minutes ago. It's like Night of the Living Dead in there. I could hardly believe it. Pizzeria Delfina had space at lunch time, too (although that could be attributed to the new rocktastic location on the other side of town). Bi-Rite Creamery was a ghost town. This sitch right here is creepier than Uncle Fred.

I was at Oliveto today for lunch, and there were 4 table seated. 4. In a place that is usual business lunch spot, there were all 8 of us feeling lonely. Definitely hitting the fan...

Yup. It's getting bad. Sam and I were able to get seats at Coi at 8pm, no problem. And later, Orson was DEAD.

Citrus Club in the Haight Friday night was packed, though almost fully emptied by 10:30pm.

Oh, and that was the first time I've eaten out since August (at It's Tops).

Haven't seen you in a long time but I've been freaking out because now there is always parking on Clement Street which is where you go when the economy is bad!!!
