Revolving Doors: July Was Hot

Recession? There must be one, judging by our paychecks and news today that Lola planned to shut down. Still, July saw an unprecedented (even in boom times) wave of restaurant openings.

Strange--July and August are not generally considered the best of months by those in the food service industry. Maybe rents were too cheap to pass up.

Anyway, our slightly delayed round up of last month's doings.
