Sex and the recession

So, apparently, New York City is still being marketed in the Sex and the City manner in which this ad suggests:

Hot pink! A martini glass! Good times! All is well! Spend money!

Anyway, I'm glad a little reality worked its way into the top left-hand corner of the Cemusa ad on Second Avenue near St. Mark's....

Ha! Gino ALWAYS charges $5 to hem pants ($7 for a cuff), recession, depression, no matter. He hasn't raised his price since I started going to him 15 years ago. 14th St bet A/B.

Of course, you have to factor in additional $5 because he never has them ready the day he says, so you have to go into Blarney Cove for a drink to wait for them to be ready.
