Why are people always so miserable?

I was with a handful of friends and everyone had a good time. The worst part for most of us is waiting for each other because invariably one or two of us ends up talking to people we run into and it holds the whole group up, but no one complains, we all just wait for each other.
We met new people and old friends, we enjoyed food, drink, art and music. I'm really not sure what the downside was. Some of you suggested that people stayed home because the weather was cooler. But unless you are one of the galleries or people depending on the crowds to make a living, why do you care? With less people, there's more for us who show up. But there were a lot of people out, so for those of you who say there was no one around, I don't think you were around, so you cannot be the judge of that.One person left a comment that he wasn't engaged enough and wouldn't return. But I did call his name out five times that night and he was so into the scene and so engaged in people he was with, that he didn't hear me. I called out to him twice at the Arts Festival Gallery and three times as he walked through Florentine Plaza. He never heard me because he was so engaged.
The restaurants were full on Commodore Plaza - Strada, Lulu and GreenStreet were crazy crowded and with LoKal, I don't know where they put all the people. The galleries had people coming and going, some had large crowds like Blu Moon and the Arts Festival Gallery and some not so much. The Arts & Minds School had large crowds all night, mostly listening to the live music out on the plaza. CocoWalk was crowded, too.
At the very end of the night we passed by the Bookstore and Open Mic Night had people enjoying that. So really, it is what you make of it. I know my friends and I had a great time and I am guessing the people we ran into felt the same, or they are all good actors with their smiling and laughing and eating and drinking and partying.
I think it's really what you make of it. If you want 10,000 people out on the streets, well, that's not going to happen, but if you want to enjoy a night out in the village, FAM Night is perfect for this.
