Mourning the Summer That Wasn't

The Star takes stock of how the restaurant industry has faired during this mostly foul-weathered summer, and things aren't pretty. Seasonal waitstaff worry that the tips they depend on to last through the winter won't add up to much with only two weeks until Labor Day. A possible scapegoat: 'singles'. Gone are the tables of 30-somethings with bank rolls, replaced by a youthful crowd who roam the late-night scene, 'apparently more willing to spend their money on booze than creme brulée'. [EH Star]
