The Silver Lining in the Gold Rush's Summer Vacation
Jim Schutze's favorite blog points out that the sad inevitable is upon us: The Gold Rush Cafe is taking its summer break, starting, oh, now. But Jeff Siegel does come bearing good news: He says that come the cafe's August reopening, proprietor George Sanchez will have installed "a Wi-Fi connection, just like Starbucks." So if you need to find Schutze starting mid-August, that'd be a good place to start. --Robert Wilonsky
