Awkward Meals: Lip and Rib

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.)
