Wow, so much cultural appropriation as far as the name, and the effort to paper it over by inverting Native American to American Native. That would've been offensive enough, but no, he had to go all out and keep Virginia Dare? Now? Really?

From the WSJ: The Fragile Economic Foundation of Dow 20,000

"And while there is little sign yet the economy has broken out of the low-growth rut of the past seven years, that too could change. If companies’ animal spirits mirror those of the market, capital spending and risk-taking could revive, dragging productivity higher."

Is this a new term: company animal spirits?

"Animal spirits" has always had an economic meaning. The term was first used in 1936 by the economist John Maynard Keynes. http://www.investopedia.com/terms/a/animal-spirits.asp

Oh, woe. So much glaringly egregious in these choices. I know the man "means" well, but there just comes a time when one needs to put aside one's "imagination" and say "Nah. I'll pass."

This is going to be a huge fail.

We actually ate there on opening day! They're in our tiny town of Geyserville, as is Coppola's Rustic. The menu was quite exotic, but the food a little bland. We're going back soon, to see if they've had a flavor tune-up. No brand tune-up yet, though!
