We went out to dinner tonight. Not upscale, sort of between bar food and upscale. meaning a good glass of wine was $8. It is Wednesday and it is about 15 degrees outside with about a 10 mph wind and clear. Overnight falling to 5. Burrrr.
The restaurant was full! We spent over $60 for two, it was nice, but not flashy. 1.5 drinks, no appetizers. The place was packed. Recession, we got no stinking recession. Then I remember that 90% employment should account for something, and in the big O its nearly 95% if you believe the numbers. Did I mention the restaurant was full?
Markets up 3, whee, anything traveling north is good. I am sure that in some areas some folks are hunkering down and God love them. Peace out.
