Anyone have knowledge about the current state of the Restaurant industry in San Diego. Contemplating where to live in California while I finish up school. Have several years experience in serving and bartending.

Can you make $200+ dollars on a weekend night?
Do restaurants seem to be hiring?
Do restaurants slow down greatly during certain parts of the year? In central NJ, the slow seasons are summer and after x-mas.

Input from people with first hand knowledge is greatly appreciated.

I know several restaurants owners. None are hiring right now. Yesterday, one owner told me he gets about a dozen resumes in the postal mail everyday. He tosses the out-of-town resumes and files some of the others.

You're not going to get hired by mailing resumes and most places aren't hiring due to the recession. For the few places which are hiring wait staff or bar staff you are MUCH better off to actually go inside the restaurants, meet the owner, and introduce yourself in person.

I will be in person when I apply to these restaurants. My unemployment has me covered for some time, while I job search out there.
