FOOD AND DRINK
It's the Southern take on the French Bistro.
But evidently alcohol was allowed while creating the sign.
Yum, bowels and camels early in the morning!
It plugs up the sink and wastes precious coffee grinds.
Apparently, this is a common mistake.
The plural of knife is knives.
Is the fish Chip's or are the chips Chip's?
We're here, we want the early dinner special, get used to it. And don't leave off the pickles!
Their hot what?
I need my apostrophe eraser. And my Z flipper.
Tea isn't coffee, right?
So close to what you meant, but now I really want to see the writer of this sign curtsey while fixing it.
Pick a spelling, any spelling.
Opposite: I shouldn't have to contemplate apostrophes while waiting for my arteries to harden.
