Default Unique ways of serving food

There was a family pharmacy in Pittsburgh, PA that closed over thirty years
ago, and the owner closed the door, and it sat unused for that time. One of
the owner's son decided to reopen it as an ice cream store since it had that
nice marble counter. It has been a success. He has one of those large jars
of pickles on the counter. One day someone wanted a pickle to take with
them, but the son did not have anything to put it in. Then he realized that
he could use one of those disposable gloves to put it into. After that one
of the ice cream stores specialties, so to speak, is a pickle-in-a-glove.

Anyone have any other unusual ways of serving food. (Keep it clean).

Tom

Naked Sushi has been around for several years, but was a very
old concept long before someone tried to market it.

Ever seen "Tampopo"?

Just a weird question that springs to mind here - why on EARTH would
an icecream store have a jar of pickles on hand? For the convenience
of all those pregnant ladies? (For that matter, why would anyone buy
one?) lol

I worked at an ice-cream shop all thru high school. We always had pickles.
But, I'll admit .. I worked there 3 years and I think the same pickles that
were there when I started, were there when I left. If the place is still open
(over 20 yrs later) I bet they would still have the same pickles lol

My thoughts exactly. I don't mind an occasional
kosher pickle spear with a Reuben or some other
sandwich, but that's about it. I don't want no
stinkin' pickles nowhere near my ice cream. :-)
