The Ladies Still Lunch

Businesses hold up in recessionary Texas

The ladies who lunch are returning to Tony’s, one of the top restaurants in ­Houston. So are the pink puffs of cotton candy, strawberry bouquets and chocolate soufflé on the sweet trolley.

That does not mean business is booming across the US, but anecdotal evidence in the country’s fourth most populous city suggests consumer confidence is returning and that the economic downturn is coming to an end.

“We’re actually seeing it wasn’t as bad as people expected, and people are coming back faster than expected,’’ said Scott Sulma, Tony’s general manager, speaking during the restaurant’s Friday night rush.

So, because idle housewives with rich husbands now eat again at Tony's, the recession is ending? If I were evaluating that newspaper based on this story, I would not be writing a check. Indeed, most of the rest of the article provided proof that the recession is NOT ending.

Well technically yes. Since their husbands are now making a profit, the idle wives now have permission to eat there and spend a little more freely.
