LOS GATOS—To simply file away under "glorious signs of summer": please note that the Manresa outdoor patio is now open for business. [EaterWire]
BAY AREA—Hard to believe, we know, but according to a lawsuit, the four local Hooters locations are being accused of taking advantage of their waitresses by stealing their tips and all kinds of other labor violations. Also, this might be the first and last time you see Manresa and Hooters mentioned in the same place. [Chron]
THE HAIGHT—All those grand plans for that 34,000 square foot Whole Foods location in the Haight have been officially scrapped. As for the reason, the (would-be) developer blamed "high city fees and the economic downturn." [BT via Curbed]
