Here’s a recession special so complicated we’ll just turn it over to the publicist: “Starting today, Monday to Friday from 4:30 p.m. to 6:30 p.m., Sandro’s pastas are priced at the first three digits of the day’s closing of the Dow Jones Index while the Dow is below 10,000. So if the Dow closes today between 7,500-7,600 the price of any pasta will be between $7.50-$7.60, or about a third of the regular prices of $19-21.” And what, free dessert if a CEO offs himself?
