At the Dog's Tongue...

Untitled

... let it all hang out.

ADDED: Noticed much later that I'd left out the word "Café" in the post title, and now that I think about it, The Dog's Tongue does sound like a restaurant name. Here's an item in L.A. Weekly about the current restaurant name trend based on animals. There are many that don't have a "Café"-type editng. So for every BrewDog Pub, there's a The Fat Dog. For every Black Cat Bakery & Cafe, there's a The Black Cat...
The Thirsty Crow...Wolf & Crane...Wolf in Sheep's Clothing...The Fox and the Goat...The Raven and the Swan... The One-Eyed Doe, The Fat Cow...  Black Hogg... Pigg...  Flying Pig... The Blind Donkey...
But I have to concede that this trend doesn't include examples where the name is a part of the animal, like The Dog's Tongue. There's no Crow's Beak or Wolf's Tail or Goat's Head (try the soup!).

This would be disturbing if you two were cat people.

The Hombres classic southern riposte to Bob's "Subterranean Blues". We used to make up our own stanzas at hootenannies as it went around the room. Those were the days...oh wait that was yesterday.

We have a canine-ish Aardwolf Brew Pub here in town.

There used to be a restaurant in LA - long before the trendiness trend - called Tail o' the Cock.
