    Suggestive name puts eatery, city at odds

    In a city aspiring to be defined by its good taste, a new Mexican restaurant, the Pink Taco, is opening with a name that some find offensive.

    Scottsdale Mayor Mary Manross was so put off by the name, a slang term for vagina, that she asked its owner to change it.

    "I don't appreciate anything that offends more than half the population," Manross said. "But he said no and heard my concern. I really didn't want to see a business with that name opening anywhere here."

    Sounding more strip club than cantina, the restaurant isn't coy about the double entendre.

    "(The name) came out of a dish (that's on the menu), but it's tongue-in-cheek. It was amusing, catchy," Pink Taco CEO Harry Morton said. "You've got to stand out from the rest of the crowd."

    I always search for threads that contain lyrics to John Conlee songs.;)

    Seriously, I was searching for threads that may explain a pink/white wire connection I've got hanging loose from my firewall and this caught my attention.

    I've got another thread about my pink wire dilemma here:
