What's more bizarre than a restaurant that only accepts credit cards? One that accepts stocks in addition to cash. In the latest restaurant industry publicity stunt, Smith & Wollensky announces today that they're accepting NYSE and NASDAQ stock certificates in addition to dollars, all to help out the poor bankers who got stock-only bonuses this year instead of cold hard cash: "At this time, our best customers are being awarded for their efforts in company stock and we for one can make that valuable to them right away...We want to make the transition to a stock economy as easy for them as possible," says the release. Aw, cute. Good to see everyone is trying to lend a helping hand.
