How about...

Dingleberry's, an Eating and Drinking Establishment

We've Got Crabs!

Phlegmonade

And (from SNL, for those old enough), don't forget the Trough and Brew, where you get hosed down between courses, as well as the jingle for Del Stater's Rabbit Hut:

Come on in to the rabbit hut

We'll turn you into a rabbit nut

OK, this is for real:

What’s in a name? Depends if you’re a viral infection or a new lower east side restaurant. EMedicine lists Epstein-Barr as acute infectious mononucleosis. However, Epstein's Bar on Stanton and Allen is a new burger joint/bar opened by Eric McMannes . Could this be the beginning of disease named restaurants? Lupus Lounge? That's why I always avoid Italian restaurants that begin with Il this or that.

7) Putts and Sluts (Driving Range/Topless Bar/and All U Can Eat Fusion!)

We've discussed this exact idea at school - but we decided upon "Skanks and Shanks"...

(...which, now that it's written down, lends a certain female max-security pen air to the whole thing. Perfect.)

I have to say, no matter how many times I read this thread, I always find something new that cracks me up.

How about what really happens when you eat fast food: In, Out, Down and Through Burger.

Or the newest place for surf and turf: Scrods and Scrotums.

"the bleeding anus"--this could be brazillian themed depending on what you go to brazil for

"pearls of phlegm" (edit: this could also be a dish at the french laundry)

"membrane and mucus"--mmmmm membrane and mucus...i might eat there

"poopin' fresh bakery"

"der spermshack"

Eschewing the scatological references, there might be such crowd pleasers as:

Caribou Fat Cafe (which would inevitably draw the ire/law suits of Caribou Coffee..)

So would that make the bistro around the corner from me at 1126 Walnut Street the "Caribou Nonfat Cafe"?

Of course, there are a few actual places which have chosen some unusual names and their locations:

Ghetto Gourmet in Oakland, California

Cabbages and Condoms near Chiang Rai, Thailand

Lizzie Borden Bed and Breakfast, Massachusetts
