Swineless Sunday: Arnold’s

If you’re heading from Jacksonville, Florida to St. Augustine by way of U.S. 1 (which I highly recommend, by the way, as it’s more interesting than taking I-95 and you get a glimpse of “old Florida”), you’ll pass Arnold’s Lounge on your left just before you get into town.

"It's got a good beat and you can dance to it!"

“It’s got a good beat and you can dance to it!”


I love this sign. When I see it I immediately think of things like “American Bandstand” and doing the Watusi. Not that I’ve ever done the Watusi. But after watching this YouTube video of it, I think it’s a dance even I could manage to perform at least halfway correctly. Now I’m in the mood to watch “Hairspray” (the original, not the remake: John Travolta isn’t fit to tie Divine’s shoes, if Divine was still alive, that is). “They put me in special education just because of my hair!” Great stuff, y’all.

Penguins and Pico


Because when I think of tacos, I totally think of penguins.

Pigporter Andrea sent this picture in from Vancouver, Washington. The reviews at http://www.yelp.com/biz/tacos-n-cream-vancouver sing the praises of this food truck, so now I can’t wait to try a taco (or three–I’m not shy) when I go out to Washington State this summer. Apparently the “cream” in the name refers to the food truck’s homemade ice cream, which as far as I can tell is not vegan, but I’m sure Andrea would be happy to eat some of it for me and tell me how it is. She’s so selfish–I mean, selfless–like that.
