When the business name is the owner’s name, it’s a good idea to proofread the sign before it goes to the printer.
Bancroft Way, Berkeley
Come to think, it’s always a good idea.
(Note that “Smokehouse” and “Bar-B-Que” are also misspelled on the smaller sign.)

At least they got "home-made" close. There used to be (still is?) a billboard on I-55 in Illinois for a small-town cafe that advertised "ho-made pies."

At least they didn't spell it "barbeque." I can live with the whimsical spelling of Bar-B-Que, but if the whimsy is gone, spell it "barbecue." Thanks for the impetus for a rant I've been dying to express in this, the season of grilling.

And what I really want to know is, how's the 'que? I'll forgive anything at a good pit.

Duchesse: Can't help you there. I've never eaten at Looney's, nor have I seen or heard a review.

One wonders...is the owner's name "Loony" or "Looney?" Enquiring minds want to know.

AlexandraFunFit: It's Looney. Follow the link in the first sentence of the post.
