toby's public house may or may not be opening up soon...wonder if they will be better then their big brother up the block, kitchen bar.
another new restaurant is also opening up down the block, it goes by the name of euro trip, the first thing that sprang to mind was that, should it be bad, it would quickly be known as "euro crap." you gotta consider the negative nicknames you could accrue when naming a place. heck, even plain old trip would be better. euro trip sounds so dumb, why do people think that they need to take it there?
lastly union market seems to be doing very well, i see a lot of people with multiple bags walking south as i walk north in the evening. even if they are selling $8 per pound baby cauliflower.
