If the economy is so horrible, why isn''t it obvious?

Bostonian here. Bars and restaurants are crowded here every night of the week. Over the weekend, I tried to get a parking space at the mall to return something from the Apple store, and the parking lot was jam-packed. The Apple store was crammed with people. \ Are people just in denial? Spending money they don''t have? Not affected?? I don''t understand. Who are these people who haven''t worked in 99 weeks, who work 30k/year jobs? My neighborhood bar, dry cleaner, coffee shop, etc. does not seem to be suffering. \ I don''t mean this post to be snotty. I am genuinely curious - do people just spend and go out anyway, even in economic distress? If I were unemployed, I would be home eating frozen burritos.
