Why would anyone name a restaurant after a girl?  I don’t understand.  And I don’t like it.  My friends wanted to take me to Audrey Claire’s for my birthday once and I insisted that we did not go anywhere that was named after a dumb girl!

Okay, so I’m a girl.  And there’s even a DUMB restaurant here in Seattle that has my name.  Will I go there?!  Certainly NOT!  I mean, seriously??  There is just something wrong with giving a restaurant a girl’s name.  Jack’s?  Sure.  Luke’s?  Great.  Pete’s?  Joe’s?  Pat’s?  Geno’s?  Good, good, good.  (And then bad but only because Geno’s are a bunch of haters.)

Anyway, back to my original statement.  Restaurant’s with girl’s names.  Weird.  Dumb.  Lame.  Ugh.  That’s what I say.

When questioned by my dear friend Melanie about this she said, “Well what about Wendy’s?”  Wendy’s?? It is so not my fault that I eat at Wendy’s from time to time.  It is a stupid name but I was cultured to go there.   I had no choice.  “Sheri’s?” she inquired.  Same thing.  So not my fault.  I mean, sure, I went there without a fight but really it wasn’t a CHOICE that I made knowingly.  I was just going where it seemed that I should go–without even realizing that I was patronizing a restaurant whose founder was clearly an idiot!  I mean come ooonnn.

And that, my friends, is all I have to say about that.
