    I was disappointed in the Jam. Maybe it’s the lack of peanut butter? We were there on Saturday, a beautiful warm day, between 1 and 3 and there were very few people there. It was really quiet in spite of the live music. We went to get our political lawn signs and visited the card and comics store, so it wasn’t a complete waste of time. The vendors’ vibe was a cross between panicked and pissed off. The paella guy had a huge line at Jack London’s Real Eats festival and no one was buying when we were there. Of course the farmer’s market was just closing up when we arrived, maybe it was a lot better earlier in the day. Not sure what the problem was, maybe just not enough of a difference with other fairs to attract much interest. I was also surprised that the new restaurants touted in the Jam’s PR didn’t get it together. The Frog and the Fiddle was really bare and obviously not really ready to shine and the one slated for the old Tillie’s location was not open yet and didn’t even have a sign promoting its upcoming opening. They missed a big opportunity to generate interest.
