It is either irony or a cruel joke that in a city so dominated by the automobile we don't have enough parking for most restaurants and bars. Valet parking is universally hated, but often condoned simply because walking five blocks from the nearest available parking space to your restaurant leaves us drenched either from rain or sweat -- did I mention the humidity? It's bad enough many of us have to pay for parking AT WORK, but tacking on $5 for the valet or, God help you, $20 for a parking space near a sports venue is robbery...or the price we pay for freedom. I forget which.
