Woodstock rises from the dead?

toriness 2 October 2008 61

Saw this sign outside Akuna Club today (which is on Akuna St in Civic amazingly).

It is a brand spanking new sign so WTF with the misspelling of ‘They’re’ in the ‘They’re Back’ and the overzealous use of apostrophes (yes I am pedantic about such things – and I know I’m not the only one who finds incorrect spelling and use of grammar annoying!) – but thought people might like to know that their beloved Woodstock is baaaaaaack.

I would rather they spell poorly and cook brilliantly than the other way around. Worth a try I say.

so i went today and had a $9.95 vego pizza. thin base (which is the best in my book), good amount of toppings, delicious! and you get a free small bowl of self-serve salad (choice of 7-8 salads/ingredients) with it. service was quick, and the food is value for money plus fonz is smiley and friendly as always.

i say go and check it out!!!

I’m still waiting patiently for a revue of the new Woodstock/Akuna combination. I know the spelling is awful but hopefully the food has improved. Drop in their for a pizza some day Tori and let us know what they’re pizza is like 🙂

update:

on my way to transit yesterday i noticed that akuna club/woodstock have ‘fixed’ this sign. and when i say ‘fixed’ i mean they have stuck a sticker over ‘their’ with the correct word ‘they’re’ on it. all the other errors in the sign remain. and the OTHER incorrect sign (with ‘the’re back’ on it) is still out there.

I will never again bring spelling errors to the attention of an eatery.

I’ve been saying elsewhere you need to challenge your assumptions about everything and continually ask the question, ‘What if what I believe is wrong?’

I found this out in spades last weekend.

For all the details, stop into the quite brilliant Brill’ café in Milton, north of Ulladulla and the proprietor (whose name now escapes me) will apprise you of all. His name (and whether I’ve already mentioned this elsewhere) have been drunk or sung or danced out of my conscious grey matter.

haha toriness – she joins the riot! Shall they red pen the sign on Tuesday…? Surely the work of fonz himself.

Bad grammar makes me (sic).

The view is mine that bad grammar is something that is up with which I will not put.

n’t think so, but as Danman pointed out, there are a lot of foul tempered, alcoholic grill cooks out there…

Grill cooks who get even more angry if you refuse to call them “chef”. It never got boring back in my Hospi days 🙂

or chefs that got called cooks?

always good for a laugh at the expense of the new kitchen hand…

screaming YES, CHEF at a grill cook in a busy cafe always has the desired response, usually the owner will wade in and tell the grill cook to knock it off.

getting someone else to scream it, priceless.

I can just imagine a sarcastic review sufacing at some stage:

“Roy the foul-tempered alcoholic grill cook”

Is that the same guy who worked at the Benjamin Club?

Overheard,

I’m more likely to burn the sign.
