Comments of the Day

Katharine Shilcutt had a bad experience at Royal Oak Bar & Grill this weekend and told us all about it. Lots of readers were outraged on her behalf, while others already had an issue with this place: the name. Said Montrosian:

I'm surprised no one has commented on the name. I think it's awful. Blah. Suburban. Not Montrose.

CMN chimed in:

Now I can only pray this isn't the beginning of a trend. As long as places like "Privilege" keep multiplying on Washington, hopefully we're safe and places like this will promptly fail in Montrose.

Privilege is waaaaay worse a name than Royal Oak, so Montrose has that going for it. What are some other name possibilities for Washington bars? Pretension, maybe? Prestige?
