Hi Dad!

I guess my Dad really does read this. He sent me this link today:

A story about Top Pot and Starbucks new collaboration.

[info]breklor should be particularly interested in this:


"There's the story about its name: For years, the Klebeck brothers stored a sign for
an old Chinese restaurant called "Top Spot" in their mother's backyard.

Around the same time she became fed up with the ivy, raccoons and squirrels it
attracted, they were looking for a name and a sign for their new doughnut shop on
Capitol Hill.

As they carted the sign along Interstate 5, "S" blew off and was crushed by a Mack
truck.

That's how Top Pot got its name."
