Continuing a summer in which concert recaps have begun to read more like dispatches from the frontlines of war, this weekend saw more deaths, arrests, and assaults added to an already insane music festival season.

Anyway, I’m not sure what all this means, except maybe that the “End of History” moment, when you could open anything and the foodies would flock, was brief and ephemeral. The restaurant business is back to being what it always was, which is to say, a tough business with tight margins where the rich usually get richer and the others have to scramble hard but can occasionally, through smarts and lots of asskickingly hard work, pull themselves into those ranks. Bad places close, but good places do too, and a bet on an up-and-coming neighborhood is either the best idea or the worst idea you ever had—and there’s no way to know till you do it.
