Speaking of being out of touch…
I looked at the restaurant list in Water Tower Place in Chicago – if you’re not familiar with it, Water Tower place is a vertical shopping mall in the center of the Miracle Mile on North Michigan Avenue. It’s probably worth mentioning that a significant portion of the tourists are Asians, since they still have real money.
Welcome to “American Girl”. It’s the strangest concept I’ve ever seen.
Presumably before you arrive, you have purchased your authentic American Girl Doll for $110 For your daughter along with a few hundred $$$ worth of doll outfits, along with matching outfits for your daughter. Her doll is in for quite a treat – getting its hair styled, trying on new outfits, having its picture put on an issue of American Girl magazine, watching its “mom” eat a tic tac toe pizza and drinking a glass of pink lemonade, and appearing on the exclusive Celebration Screen.
For lunch, that’s $22 per person plus tax and gratuity.
So what do you think this means?
