That's good fish.

Franklin's (Hyattsville, MD) is one of our favorite local restaurants. After church on Sunday I had "Fidel's Favorite," a tasty cuban sandwich, while Becky had the pasta special with sausage and broccoli rabe. Nobody at our table was a big enough spender to go for the Grilled Atlantic Salmon, however. I know the economy is rough, but does Franklin's really think this is the way to increase profits? I guess if gas prices are falling, maybe people will be more willing to pay twelve-hundred dollars for some salmon.

Isn't that called lemonade?

The picture's a little fuzzy, but it says "Lemons--Perfect for orange juice." 

This, of course, flies in the face of generations who have followed the tradition that orange juice is best made with oranges. Good for Giant for shaking things up!
