Really In A Pickle

Pickle suit, that is.

Seen during our recent visit to the newly-opened Mr. Pickle's Sandwich Shop across from The Pruneyard.

TSG has wanted to visit Mister Pickle's for many years, as our usual route to Yosemite passes by the location on the corner of 4th and South Livermore.  We always wondered how Mr. P's offerings might stack up against Togo's or Subway or Gunther's Deli. 

So, after all these years of not stopping in Livermore, we got our chance to sample the curiously-named eatery's menu.  We tried a BLT w/avo on toasted sliced sourdough, and it was pretty good--not worth writing home about, but still decent fodder for our kind of blogpost.  To be honest, now that we have the pickle guy pics, it's doubtful that we'll be stopping in again.


TSG encountered a possible sandwich-shop match made in heaven during our San Fran ramble this morning.  We can only hope that Mr. Bread doesn't get jealous.

As goofy mascot suits go, that pickle suit is pretty good, actually. Wonder how uncomfortable it is for the wearer?

Also, all things considered (such as the general unwashability of such a suit), who would ever want to be the SECOND person to wear the suit on any given day? That could be pretty nasty.

How doughy!

Yes, if only an Uncle Bread shop would open, these folks could all have a mighty get-together.

Don't know if you do Facebook, but Engleknot Face is on there. As a fictional character, anyway; they didn't believe that "Engleknot Face" was the actual name of a real person. I was mildly offended, given a world of 8 billion people or so.
