It's true those people are just the salt of the earth, just struggling to send their kids to the kent school and poly prep

I had to keep scrolling up to confirm that it was not an Onion article.

NYT: Sales at Sit-Down Restaurants Suggest a Rising Economy

One caveat of the article is that they do not distinguish Le Bernardin and Red Lobster: both are considered "sit-down restaurants" for statistical purposes.

Wait I thought this thread was about the high(ish)-end restaurant recovery in NYC? I have a hard time seeing a nationwide index of Applebee's sales as being a meaningful indicator of that. Certainly the economy in the US has been improving - I don't think anyone has argued about that.

Ooh lookie what I said 15 months ago

And to restate things once again - I am not unoptimistic about about the economy, certainly not for the nation as a whole - I am admittedly less sanguine about the NY area just given the large % of GDP that comes from the Financial Service industry but certainly for many people things will get better - and I would appreciate it if you would remember that before you claim I said things I never said.

My assertion is, and has always been, that the entire high end of NYC - whether it be restaurants, luxury goods, or Real Estate is unsustainable and has more declines in demand ahead of it. I don't think places like, well Cabrito or Fatty Crab are in this category.

I just didn't see the need to start a separate thread for that. You would have had the same gloom & doom response regardless of where it was posted . . . wouldn't you?

Let's all give Bonner a break this week, shall we? The tournament isn't going well for him and he's got to vent somewhere.

I think you need to interpret what I'm saying in a reasonable way.

Show me where I've been gloom and doom about something other than NYC? I mean you literally don't know what you are talking about.

Adrian - look at the time stamp on that - it was before the game. I'm always happy to call Oakapple out.

Besides its not like it was the first round this year.

Well, NYC is all we talk about on this board. If you're sanguine about, say, Topeka, how would I know? Condolences on your NCAA woes; my team lost too.

Yeah - I really just think its NYC that is facing a problematic future in the US. I thought I'd been pretty consistent in saying that over the last few years here.

The tourney sucks until your team outperforms.
