I get tired of things closing.
Two months ago, my favorite Thai food joint. Last month, the little Italian bakery in the area where I worked.
Then, just heard one of the truly elegant venues for live music in St. Pete, the venerable "Dave's Aqua Lounge"... a dive bar of the highest standing. Sigh. Breathed its last.
Not a lot of unique places I love to haunt in the Bay Area any more. Not recession proof. Plenty of chain resturants, naturally. Still, I can get tickets to the Bucs games (because no one else wants to see them) and tickets to the USF Bulls games (because no one else wants to see them; bad football juju in the TB area).
But, I can go to 3-4 days of the Clearwater Jazz Festival this weekend. And see Tower of Power. And Amos Lee. And Brandi Carlisle. That'll do.
