Janna and I were out the other night at one of our favorite restaurants: Tio Pepe in the core of New York City’s Greenwich Village.
The menu held an alarming surprise.
One of these things is not like the others.
One of these things just doesn’t belong:
Puruple Mother F*cker
Here’s the thing that doesn’t fit…
… Wait for it
“Shiraz” is a delicious type of wine while everything else on the list
is a new a hip kind of “shot” alcoholic drink!
Reading that crass list
made me wonder what happened to Tio Pepe and when I officially became
old. I can’t imagine speaking the names of any of those shots, let
alone drinking one. Itâ€™s sad how far the majestic have fallen:
Pepe was the first restaurant in New York to introduce the Pina Colada
1970. Today, they’re just as tasteless as every other nameless Village
