(08-06) 18:53 PDT -- The number eight is considered so lucky that weddings on Friday, Aug. 8 - 8/8/08 - are in high demand. Minutes after the city clerk's office in San Francisco started taking reservations, the date was booked.
"There were people camping out on our reservation system, waiting for the clock to hit midnight," said Karen Hong Yee, the director of the office, which takes reservations up to 90 days in advance. "We tripled our current capacity and are doing 128 weddings that day.
"Sometimes New Year's Eve gets popular, and Valentine's Day is always big, but we haven't seen this much of a demand in a while."
