No Vacation

When I saw the storefront display of floating sunglasses and mannequins in bikinis, leis, and grass skirts, I assumed it was promoting a travel agency. In fact, it was in the window of one of New York's most successful divorce attorneys. The bartender across the street explained the lawyer gets most of his business from miserable stockbrokers going through midlife crisis.

From all reports, the clever way of circumventing the bar's restriction's on advertising works well ... but only for the lawyer.
