Nation's Restaurant News is reporting that Adult Only Parties are up 2% in the year ending December 2008.
The percentage change in restaurant traffic is versus the same time period a year ago.
This trend was reversed in 2006 when Restaurant Parties with Kids peaked ahead of the prior year by plus 4% before going virtually flat in 2007 at plus 1% in 07, then falling 3% in '08.
Mom and Dad are still going out for a meal but some are definitely leaving the kids at home.
