In 2002, I carried out the following fact-finding interview at the Lip & Rib restaurant, downtown Berkeley:
Me: Could I get a Coke to go, please?
Her: Uh-huh. That will be one dollar.
Me: Okay. Say, uh--
Her: Would you like a straw with that?
Me: Uhm, no, I, uh, but I do have a question. What's the "Lip" in "Lip & Rib"?
Her: Oh that's-- You know how when you eat ribs, you smack your lips? It's like that.
Me: So it's not-- Uhm, Okay. Cool. Hey, thanks.
(This was arguably not as interesting as my previous meat marketing interview.)
