There's a hot dog stand here serving great Sonoran style hot dogs called "Weiners by Beaners."

Some of the best in town...

"Fast Wok" - Chinese take out. I've actually seen this, although I don't remember which city it was in. Probably Chicago area.

If I saw a place like that, I'd probably go in for a perm and coloring just to support them.

A few Asian restaurant choices that come to mind:

Hung Far Low Portland, OR

Pho Bich Nga Vancouver, Canada. Not meant to be clever, but gives me a chuckle.

Pho Ton. Portland, OR and Vancouver, USA (sorry no pics)

There is gutter company around here called CR Gutters. Their trucks are very bright and under the CR Gutters logo it says "We're hangin' around your neighborhood!".
Then there are alot (seriously tons) of espresso stands around here with bikini girls serving coffee with great names like "Hot Cups".
