The economy has finally caught up with Santa Claus.
After serving nearly 2,200 people in its sixth year last year, Christmas at Claudia's will have to scale back for 2011.
"This year we won't be able to provide dinner because of the recession," said Louise Riley, the manager at Claudia Sanders and organizer of the event. "The restaurant has just had a really tough year."
But, Riley said the event would not be cancelled, because of a last-minute meeting.
