Thai Cuisine plus Economic Musing

With Sharon back from working a couple of days in the city and me on the road part of the day, neither of us were mood to cook so we ended up going to Chantara Thai Cuisine for dinner. Located in a strip mall close to the house, it has been almost a year since we first went there. The food was good.

The odd thing was that the place was completely empty; it was a little spooky. We got there a little before 6:00 p.m. After a few minutes, I bet Sharon and Jack that no one would show up while we were there. Someone picked up some take-out food after about half an hour and then finally a couple came in and sat down just was we were ready to get our check. Even if it is a Wednesday night, it is hard for me to understand how you can keep a restaurant open with this little traffic. I wonder what impact the economic uncertainty and the drop in home values has on this type of business. Are fewer people eating out, particularly on weekend nights?
