Marty and I go to a Brazilain steakhouse called Espetus Churrascaria.

“Is this another one of your Yelp discoveries?” She asked me.


“How do you suppose you say their name?”

“Don’t bother. It isn’t the real name” I said.

“Of course it is. It’s on the sign out front. It is on the menu.”


“What do you mean ‘Nah’?”

“This place is hipster. The name is obviously an anagram.”

“You’re crazy.”

“Come on.”

“I am totally serious. ‘Espetus Churrascaria’.  Clearly an anagram. You just have to work it out.”

“You are crazy.”

“No seriously. It is very hipster. They don’t want everyone to know the real name.”

“Well there’s a winning business strategy.”

“Are you being sarcastic?”

“Oh no. I would never be sarcastic.”

“Come on. Don’t be afraid of the hipster. Let’s work it out.

“Work it out? There are  … uh…18, no, 19, 19! L19 letters. You can’t just work it out. It would take forever. We don’t even have a pen.”

“Don’t worry. I have an app.”

“For the restaurant?”

“For anagrams. Just give me a second and I’ll decipher it.”

“This is so stupid.”

“Here we go…. Whoops.”

“I’ll say … whoops.”

“Wow. There are a lot of choices. How about: A Parachutes Scurries.”

“Come on.”

Characters Raise Us Up?”

“Be serious.”

“Whoa. Here it is. I got it.”

“I can’t wait.”

Hipster Aura Scares U

“It does not say that! That’s bullshit! Let me see your phone!”

Hipster Aura Scares U!! Read it and weep.”

“…Let me see that thing! … You Jackass! It doesn’t say that. It says Hipster Aura Scares Uc. That isn’t anything. You moron.”

“But very close. Had you going.”


“And the food is amazing…”
