Saw a restaurant/bar called "I don't Care", perfect for when you ask the wife where she wants to eat.

Skinny Dick’s Halfway Inn.

When I was a student at the Univ. of Arkansas, there was a honky tonk on the edge of town called "The Tea Table." No tea, just beer, set ups, dancing and fighting. grin

Nearby small town has a bar named The Gym. Used to be a headshop (back in the day) that was called Pipefitters.

Bar in the college town where I grew up was named "The Alibi".

The sign for Tasker's Well-drilling company on Route 4 in NH boasts "Our Business Is Going In The Hole!"
