I was on an airplane yesterday and found myself leafing through American's in-flight magazine. Most of the advertising was about what I would have expected -- items that are useful when traveling and vacation destinations -- but there was a surprising quantity of advertising for churrascaria chains. Previously, Fogo de Chao had been the only churrascaria chain I was even aware of, but there turn out to be two or three other ones and they're all advertising in this one magazine. Seems odd to me. On top of that, just tons and tons of ads for dating services, which I kind of assumed didn't even exist anymore.
