(Continued from below) - This is how countries who now resemble old, worn out Cuba's, began their slippery slide from a once robust economy. The prices begin to soar & businesses begin to cut corners. It was nearly empty in this restaurant that used to have a line out the door only six months ago...and it's new year's night. Other "large chain" restaurants in the area had 2 hour waits. The food & ambiance at this restaurant has always been unbelievable...and they have the best catering! But it looked as if they're understaffed now. It was very sad to witness ANOTHER business going under, as so many have in our town. Empty plaza, after empty plaza...all down Main Street! The sad thing is that it doesn't have to be this way.
