sounds "delicious"

Andreas saw this one at a place called Vivian's. Maybe somebody called it the "best" but Vivian is skeptical.

one starving musician came by to say: I really love your site! I'll keep my camera eye out for any unnecessary quotation marks.

Sounds "delicious"
The presumption--that ALL quotation marks use in signs are incorrect usage--is wrong. It's common practice for restaurants to post and quote "Best of" ratings --Vivian's breakfast spot is obviously a local favorite.

Just because something is common practice doesn't make it not funny. If something reputable called it the "best" it would be more meaningful if it attributed the quote.

@djb:

Nobody is making a "presumption" about anything. But an error "is" an error, and social acceptance of error doesn’t "make" it correct.

I suppose it's all the way you've been "orientated". Irregardless.

Oh man... it's like I've been looking for this blog all my life...

Then it's plagiarism, djb. You can't quote a person or magazine or whatever who says you're the "best" without citing it. That's just silly!

And, again, while not necessarily incorrect they are certainly unnecessary!

I think having a joint for breakfast is pretty hardcore.

This place is actually around the corner from my house.
and funny enough I actually think it is the best place for breakfast in Studio City, which is a kind of small city. I haven't eaten at every place of course, only being here 7 years.
But any dinner/cafe that the girls who wait the tables make a yearly calender has got to have something going for it.

I love this blog, and I've been looking for an email address so I could forward this to you:

Don't know if it's too serious, but it's definitely terrible.
