Want to enjoy some fine dining at Mo’s Steakhouse in Indianapolis this Super Bowl weekend? You won’t be able to get in unless you’re willing to spend $200 … and that’s per person. Wondering how that’s possible without ordering expensive wine and/or champagne, I called Mo’s to confirm.
“We have steaks ranging in price from anywhere from $46 to $120,” said the cheerful woman who answered the phone. “And many of our side dishes are al la carte. And if you don’t reach the minimum, we also have a large selection of wine to choose from.”
“Getsh your hands OFF of me! I’m not DRUNK! (hic!)”
So, price gouging, or good economic sense? Mitt Romney and Newt Gingrich may have opposing views on this topic in the next debate. Maybe I’m just a hopeless cheapskate, but 200 bucks per person sounds like a lot. At any rate, Mo’s says reservations for Friday and Saturday are pretty heavy, with some availability Sunday night, so the price mandate doesn’t seem to be scaring away customers. Um, you can leave the tip.
