Random Gripe

It really f#$*%&# annoys me  when restaurants list something in their menu as a specialty but don't know how to spell the name of the dish.

I have a bunch of gift certs from Restaurant.com I got dirt cheap (80% off their already fabulous prices!!!) and I was looking at the menus for somewhere to go tomorrow. 

So I'm looking at the menu for this place called Christine's Creekside Inn and it lists a dish called "Shrimp and Scallops D'Avola." 

I'm like "D'Avola?  What the hell is D'Avola?"

Based on the description, I'm guessing they meant "Diavolo" or really, Shrimp and Scallops Fra Diavolo, which means "of the devil."  It's a spicy dish, you see.

Stupid, stupid, stupid.

And I'm just as bad because I just spent 10 minutes blogging about it.

not only did you spend 10 minutes blogging about it ... but you also had a couple of typos and misspelled words yourself. LOL!!!

Mine are typos from typing quickly... theirs are just idiocy.
