You ever have a song that just …
(That’s OBVIOUSLY me and OBVIOUSLY a big sword, right?)
I think Crockett tried to get me to go see the National once or twice, but I could be wrong about that. A lot of bands have names like that, kind of, ya know?
Speaking of names, what the ever loving fuck is going on with the ampersands in restaurant names? Allow me to present an incomplete roundup of new or relatively new restaurants in the Denver area:
- Stoic & Genuine
- Work & Class
- Salt & Grinder
- Beast + Bottle (counting it, pronounced the same)
- Colt & Grey
- Williams & Graham
- Z Cuisine & A Cote
- Mercantile Dining & Provision
- Guard & Grace
- Rooster & Moon
- Olive & Finch
NOT A SINGLE ONE OF THOSE IS MADE UP. I left off some older ones like Eat + Drink and Hops & Pie, because I think they were pre-bandwagon, but fuck it, let’s count them too.
(Should I have warned of a curse heavy post?)
That’s a baker’s dozen with a mere 5 minutes of research. Is this happening in other cities? Is this a sign of something? Are aliens that are shaped like ampersands trying to acclimate us, perhaps?
If this name generator didn’t already exist, I would have wished that it did.
