Phish Fans Not Buying Hamburgers

With hundreds of young Manhattanites fleeing the city this weekend for the Phish traffic- and mudfest in Vermont, it looks to be a quiet weekend on the NY restaurant scene -- at least on St. Mark's. Unfortunately, Coventry's finest establishments aren't seeing much business yet either. A report from the front:

Connie Kelley has hundreds of pounds of hamburger, hot dogs and buns. But she's not seeing much business at her house just outside the concert gates. She's not giving up, though. She and others say they're still hopeful that once fans settle into the campsites, they'll come in search of more offerings.
