Awesome Chicken Infiltrates Poconos

Here in the Poconos, the names of businesses fall within two groups. In the first, a place is known by its proprietor and his wares, as in Bakker’s Marina and Fluff’s Diner. In the second, a business names the goods it sells but in a “cute” way: Awesome Chicken, ‘Lectric n’ Plumin’ (a little crazy on the apostrophes, there), Venture Inn…

and our favorite…. Tuck ‘Em Inn.

    We should have a contest.

    I claim the “Big Belly Deli” in Jersey and the “Dew Drop Inn” in I-don’t-remember-where.

    I think Dew (or Do) Drop Inn, Wander Inn and Stagger Inn have been done to death. My favorite local name is “That One Place” (Fenton, MO)

    Tuckahoe Inn (Beesley’s Point, NJ).

    Game, set, match.

    I forgot, there’s also a place here called, “The Other Store,” a thrift shop. OMG and a kitchenwares shoppe called, “Misc. Essentials.”

    How about the Wheeler Inn (Wheeler, OR)? Complete with mannequins and barrow above the awning.
