The August doldrums

The stereotype that August in D.C. is terrible for restaurants is becoming, well, more of a stereotype than reality. While still slow, promotions and tourism are on the rise, and Congress's absence isn't as big of a deal as it used to be. A better word for the month? "Unpredictable." [WCP]
