Restaurant's Risque Rubric
Scottsdale, AZ, is abuzz about a restaurant chain that wants to open a Pink Taco Mexican Restaurant store in this upscale city. The company's flagstaff store is in the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas. After initially favoring its establishment, Scottsdale Mayor Mary Monross is now opposing it after being alerted by some citizens that the name is a bawdy term for a part of the distaff anatomy. Linda Perez, a spokewoman for the restaurant counters that it is named after an item on the menu. If the mayor is correct, it won't be the first time that a restaurant chain has cashed in on a double entendre.
