It's true that Lazy Bear chef-owner David Barzelay Googled his chosen name for the restaurant (an anagram of his last name) and decided that an annual local summertime celebration of hirsute gay men at the Russian River with the same name was not going to cause any confusion. (Except that it has.) But it looks like chef Andreas Bernard did not employ a search engine before naming his upcoming pop-up celebrating his Canadian roots, dubbed Mooseknuckle.
Yes, many of you have probably used the term to refer to the male equivalent of camel toe, and it's not a new one. But, alas, Bernard perhaps only knew Moose Knuckles as a Canadian outdoor apparel brand, and he went with it. Inside Scoop editor Paolo Lucchesi first noted it on Twitter yesterday.
A Canadian popup in the Mission named Mooseknuckle? This isn't real, is it? Did they at least Google the name first? https://t.co/JDnTICvXNY— Paolo Lucchesi (@lucchesi) May 21, 2015
The pop-up is happening tomorrow, Saturday, May 23, at 7:30 p.m. at 2293 Mission Street (a.k.a. the former Hapa Ramen), and costs $49 per person. Seats appear to still be available, and the menu includes things like poutine with duck, and a Montreal smoked brisket sandwich.
