If Mtn View, one of the tech geek world's centers, can't sustain a uWink, I don't think anywhere can.

Ha ha, their CEO is apparently Nolan Bushnell.

It's closing? Already? That was quick... maybe I'll have to actually walk down there and have it for lunch...

@Strider Aragorn - I think the uWink in Mountain View is *already* closed.

And the ones in LA are going to drastically change...

I thought the bet was for uWink to go out of business. What if they are no longer in the restaurant business, but still building/selling technology? There's still hope.
