Raymond misreads restaurant names: Local 360

Okay, maybe this time I'm misreading it on purpose, but when I see the name of popular new restaurant Local 360, I think, "That doesn't look all that low-calorie to me. I bet their dishes have more than 360 calories."

Or maybe it's "We serve high-calorie foods five days a year. Congratulations, you happen to have picked those five days."

    Multiples of 90 I tend to take as angles. Though in this case I might take it to be the designation of a local union, not that I've heard of any running their own restaurants.

  2. @cr:

    So, they'll get around to serving you eventually?

    You could also misread it as a restaurant that connects to a non-remote Live gaming service?

    @cr: Why is it called Local 360? Because when you see it, you'll turn 360 degrees and walk away…

    (If you're considering commenting on this: don't. Google "360 walk away" if you must.)

  4. Mike says:

    Isn't the shorthand "lo-cal" and not "local?"

  5. Gabe says:

    Perhaps they just have small portion sizes?

    @JM:  The solution is simple.  Moonwalk.

    Their site states:

    "At Local 360, we care about where our ingredients come from, and how they are produced. From arugula to zucchini, our goal is to source everything we use from within a 360 mile radius of Seattle."

  8. Will says:

    At least they are better then grocery chain that make a big case about them being local and "green" and then most use definition of local and "green" as getting items for a 400 mile radius.

    Even at 360 miles they are close to Boise, Idaho.

    Looks like a union chapter to me.  Example: Teamsters Local 360

  10. Gabe says:

    Another possibility is that they source all their ingredients from the 360 area code (which covers Western Washington outside of the Seattle area).

  11. CmraLvr2 says:

    They are 5 short of a full office.

    When I read that name, I can't help thinking "But surely Redmond must have more than one Xbox in town."
