One of the Springfield restaurant owners recently told me that within the last year, 600 new restaurant seats opened in Springfield (I think I have that right).  I agree with Kerry about the 20 year average pace, but the pace is accelerating.

Funny not to hear the word "gentrification" in this discussion.

People say a lot of shit.  The number of new resteraunts sets is not a known thing.    We could look at fire Marshall capacity; that's known. 


What was the total capacity 5 years ago?  What is it today?   To me, I see activity, places closing and reopening.  But I don't there being a double digit growth in capacity over the last 5 years.
