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.

James, we really, really, really shouldn't go here.  Literally and figuratively.

Joseph, point well taken. Had not the Owl chain taken off as if did, it certainly would merit little or no note.
