Markets in Everything: Market-Based Beer and Food Pricing at NYC Restaurant

NEW YORK (Reuters) - "What's the value of a pint of beer? Let the market decide, says a new restaurant in Manhattan where prices for food and beverages will fluctuate like stock prices in increments according to demand."

"The Exchange Bar & Grill, set amid the bustling shops and pubs of the Grammercy Park neighborhood, is replete with a ticker tape flashing menu prices in red lettering as demand forces them to fluctuate."

Funny, I remember five years ago someone telling me about going to a bar called The Exchange somewhere in Europe -- Barcelona I think -- where they had a ticker and fluctuating prices. She said at the end of the night the cost of water would shoot up. (guessing bottled)

What happens to Happy Hour Planning?

Wow. This sounds somehow illegal. Especially in NYC. Don't they have some type of idiot "happy hour" law that would conflict with this?
