Watch Tuesday's show for more on this story.

Evening Edition airs weekdays at 5 PM and 6:30 PM on KPBS TV.

Four San Diego City Council members are supporting a move they say will help restaurants struggling in the economic downturn.

They want some regulations on entertainment fees lifted. However, the council members voted only months ago to boost those fees to increase revenue for the cash-strapped city.

We'll speak to Kevin Faulconer about what's going on with the entertainment permits.

The Corvette Diner is a poor example of a small family business. It's part of the Cohn Family of restaurants who dominate the San Diego restaurant industry up & down Fifth Avenue & from Balboa Park to Little Italy to Harbor Island & now have moved into the rest of the county with restaurants & food trucks. Not to mention that they operate the Hillcrest Farmers' Market & are major advertisers/sponsors on KPBS. Along with all this goes a lot of political clout.
