Nothing says come on in, stay awhile, like this welcome sign

Welcome sign
I guess quality, comfort, friendliness, are just not a part of their brand.

Wow, emphasis on the "take out" - as in "get the hell out"!

Hey, I think I know this place...I see that sign and laugh...at MLK and Fremont...right?? What a great sign.

This defies the warm-and-friendly atmosphere in Portland! What a hoot!

I wonder if you do loiter, does the person behind the register yell and you and say "CAN'T YOU READ?!?"...

"Their" brand?

Whose brand?

[Is probably misunderstanding...]

That place is rockin' at night -- good DJs.

I think there was a shooting there about a year ago. Then the sign popped up.

I pass that sign multiple times a day. Cracks me up every time.

@ Alan Cordle: Yeah, it used to say something about fried fish I think.

LOL...it used to say "Soul Food" I think...until load o' shootings and fights put them on the bad side of the police. Then that sign went up. I pass it every day on the bus.

Hee. I love how the small print mentions their big screen tv. 'Cause, you know, it's damned hard not to loiter in front of a big ass tv set.
