Reverting to ‘booze culture’

Richard Core Jul 21, 2008

Has the “Mad Men” TV show made drinking at the office hip again? Ad Age has a feature out today that says in-house bars at advertising agencies — “seemingly a relic of 1960s Madison Avenue — look to be all the rage once again.”

Several of the office locales have unique themes, decors and names you’d expect to find associated with regular happy-hour hot spots. Our favorite name: the Mindshare agency’s “Brain Drain.”

We’re here to help you navigate this changed world and economy.

Our mission at Marketplace is to raise the economic intelligence of the country. It’s a tough task, but it’s never been more important.

In the past year, we’ve seen record unemployment, stimulus bills, and reddit users influencing the stock market. Marketplace helps you understand it all, will fact-based, approachable, and unbiased reporting.
