Sitting at a red light I noticed this sign and really didn't know what to make of it. When I think of the very British Mother Hubbard from the nursery rhyme (a grandmotherly type who shops for all sorts of food and treats for her dog), I associate foods like jams and casseroles and cakes and biscuits. I don't think of Native American food and I don't really make the connection to Mother Hubbard and Day of the Dead at all! Am I missing something?
I'm a transplanted New Yorker who loves the Tucson climate. On New Year's Day I have a bit of fun calling my (snowbound) east coast friends to announce that I'm drinking coffee while sitting on my patio. (:
I think I remember that place as a diner kind of joint that served eggs, waffles, pancakes - regular American stuff. Maybe it changed owners.... that is weird about the Day of the Dead image....ReplyDelete
Yes, I do recall a place like 'anonymous' talks about, that was not fancy and was in a strip mall kind of area on Grant...ate there maybe once or twice. Aha! I went to the .com address and more is revealed!! However, I still don't get the Dia del Muerte sign?!ReplyDelete
