For a late lunch today, as tired as I was from unpacking after moving, I wanted to go to the nearest Schlotsky's (its my favorite fast-food restaurant and the ONLY fast-food restaurant I go to). It was closed down!!! So, I went across the street to the first sandwich shop I could see (subs).
I noticed a board of the "Specials" for each day of the week, when I was reading the overhead menu. What really caught my eye was "Pakalolo" (Hawaiian for "marijuana"). I asked the kid at the ordering counter if he knew what that translated to and he said, "Oh yes, the whole restaurant is based around that” and pointed to the walls.
Sure enough, I looked up (what I’d previously glanced toward and dismissed as surfer stuff photos and/or the likes) and saw posters of Bob Marley smokin' a spleef, and a poster advertising the old movie, “Reefer Madness”. Monday’s Special was “Humboldt”, Tuesday's special was "Kush", Wednesday's Special was "White Widow", Thursday’s Special was “Skunk”, todays was “Pakalolo”, Saturdays was “East Coastern” and Sunday's Special was "Afghani". Ahem.
I ordered "Da Kine" sandwich (turkey and mushroom) but wanted the Panama Red (chicken marinara). "Magic Mushroom" is a portabella, of course. It was filled with bell pepper, pineapple and pepper jack cheese, grilled.
I'll have to go back. Maybe take some conservative friends (IF I have any), to see if they notice.
I wondered if that greenish mayo had any herb in it. Sure was tasty.
