    In any case, I do not stop to eat, I do not pass Go, I do not collect $200. I do my business then get the hell out.

    I hate Phoenix.

    Therefore, I will likely never be an expert on an establishment that does not also do business in Tucson.

    Nonetheless, if they want to stretch the connotation of the Pink Taco, I suppose they also could with the Pink Panther.

    I can't see why it would be any more derogatory than Hooters. I mean, come on!

    I think there is nothing wrong with the name Pink Taco. I agree with Scribe though, Avoid Phoenix at all costs. The desert gets depressing to look at.

    Hey, as far as I'm concerned, if the product is good, then I'd more than likely give them business.

    At least then, I could always brag that I had.......

    Besides, isn't one of the main marketing concepts to give consumers something to remember you by, above your competition? Instead of a catchy jingle, song....it happens to be their name.

    AZ/Top....either of you ever been?

    What's in a name?

    SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. - The name of a new restaurant in Scottsdale is stirring up some trouble. The Las Vegas-based Pink Taco Mexican Restaurant is scheduled to open its second location in downtown Scottsdale in June.

    Nearly half a dozen people in the upscale city recently expressed their objection to the name, claiming it's a derogatory slang term for a portion of the female anatomy.

    In late April, the city received four e-mails, three of which bore no names, objecting to the restaurant's name.

    One of those e-mails stated: "The City of Scottsdale has a very fine reputation around the world. Let's keep the standards high. Let's let what plays in Vegas stay in Vegas."

    Scottsdale Mayor Mary Manross has said she is offended by the name and went so far as to ask the owner to change it, although he refused.

    Restaurant spokeswoman Lisa Perez said the company's name comes from one of its menu items.

    Perez said the company has not received any complaints or objections about its name.

    The original Pink Taco is inside the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas.

    The Scottsdale City Council is scheduled to decide Monday whether to recommend the restaurant get a liquor license. If granted, the restaurant's application would then be sent to the state liquor board for review.
