SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. - The name of a new restaurant in Scottsdale is stirring up some trouble. The Las Vegas-based Pink Taco Mexican Restaurant is scheduled to open its second location in downtown Scottsdale in June.

Nearly half a dozen people in the upscale city recently expressed their objection to the name, claiming it's a derogatory slang term for a portion of the female anatomy.

In late April, the city received four e-mails, three of which bore no names, objecting to the restaurant's name.

One of those e-mails stated: "The City of Scottsdale has a very fine reputation around the world. Let's keep the standards high. Let's let what plays in Vegas stay in Vegas."

Scottsdale Mayor Mary Manross has said she is offended by the name and went so far as to ask the owner to change it, although he refused.

Restaurant spokeswoman Lisa Perez said the company's name comes from one of its menu items.

Perez said the company has not received any complaints or objections about its name.

The original Pink Taco is inside the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas.

The Scottsdale City Council is scheduled to decide Monday whether to recommend the restaurant get a liquor license. If granted, the restaurant's application would then be sent to the state liquor board for review.



Awesome name for a restaurant, "Pink Taco". I don't see why they are offended. If they don't like it, just don't go, the restaurant won't do well and they will close. Capitalism wins again.
Whining pansies.

Would you be offended by a restaurant name like that in your neighborhood?

Bell: slang

The head of the male organ; I've got a big purple bell.

The clitoris. A female sexual organ; The famous pop song, "Ring My Bell", is regarded as an euphemism for cunnilingus in urban legend.

Not to mention you would have to ban every "hot dog stand" everywhere.

That's an awesome name, though.

I bet the people who objected to the name of this place are fucking crazed womens' rights activists.

Hahaha, there was a kid that used to go to the same school as me and my mates who we used to call 'Bell End', because he was a bit of a dick.
I can't even remember what his real name was, or if I ever used it, he was just 'Bell End'.
At first he hated it and used to go crazy give us verbal abuse every time we said it, but eventually he got used to it and it was his accepted name.

Hahaha just found this pic on the internet. WTF? :toothy12:

You might want to say it's NOT SAFE FOR WORK! Dumbass.

I doubt it. I think it was religious men who did it. Just like I've never met a guy who objected to hot dogs, I've never met a woman who thought taco was somehow bad.

Crazy Feminists for the win!

Doubt it's crazy religious people, they probably wouldn't even know that pink taco meant vagina.

Gotta be feminazis. Fundamentalists are too sheltered to get the reference, whereas the womyn who roll their own tampons are so sex-obsessed that they will get the reference (even if its not there) and will take it as proof of an age-old patriarchal conspiracy to oppress alllwomen, everywhere..

You know the really sad thing, though? I'll bet the food suxxx.

I wonder how they'd react if thePINKARATE (http://www.pinkarate.com) organization decided to set up a school in their area.

Since pink karate isn't a common euphemism for vagina I doubt they'd give a flying ****.
