Signage FAIL: Quiznow

There is never any shortage of signs/banners/flags displayed outside the Quizno's on Fenton Street, but recently they've posted an intriguing handwritten sign out on the sidewalk advertising their new delivery service. I never really thought twice about the sign until I happened to glance at it in passing and noticed the inclusion of the curious word "Quiznow".


I have gone over this sign countless times in an attempt to interpret the meaning of Quiznow. Is it an amalgamation of "Quizno's" and "now", as in "Quizno's now has free delivery"? Did someone incredibly misspell Quizno as Quiznow? Or, is it two words (Quiz now), the sign's author having neglected to include last three letters of Quizno's? The more I think about it, the more my head hurts...

Unrelated, but in case you didn't already see it on Facebook, check out this Fillmore concert t-shirt fail, spotted in the wild:

The "Mary's Hairstylist" appeared to be in the middle of a remodel when went past this block this morning. No idea if the current tenant is staying or not.

If you place an order with Quiznow's based on that sign to be delivered to your home, you're pretty much asking for trouble.

Corporate Bar & Grill, nee Piratz Tavern, is yet again "Closed for renovation." Will probably go back to the pirate theme, as by all accounts the corporate thing is a freaking disaster.

Nothing says reputable, trustworthy business like a handwritten sign. Case in point: the "We pay cash for homes/old cars/your liver" signs all over the place.

Wow, per the South Silver Spring blog, Scion Restaurant in Dupont is expanding to an East-West location. That's huge, considering how few dining options there are on that side of the train tracks. They won't be rivaling Fenton Village anytime soon, but it's a key first step and a great addition to downtown Silver Spring in general.

Uhm...how far is two milles?

Well, they did spell it correctly on the bottom of the sign, for whatever that's worth.

I'm not a fan of Quiznos, but geez folks, don't be so dense. If you can understand "Groupon Now" and "Living Social Instant," then surely you can understand what they're getting at with "Quiznow."

Is that Zach Galifianakis at the bar?

I wish 100 Montaditos would displace Quiznos in DTSS.

Anyone else been to the Stage Burger Lounge yet? We went last night around 7 and were glad to see we weren't the only people there (HATE eating in places when there's no one else there!). Burgers were pretty good. Mine wasn't the best burger I've ever had, but pretty decent. I'd go back, as I'm sure things will continue to be refined.

Also, in other Silver Spring news, the skybridge between the two United Therapeutics buildings was brought in on a large truck yesterday. According to one of the construction guys, it will be installed on Sunday. Looks pretty sweet, and definitely looking forward to seeing the finished buildings.

Stage Burger Lounge has pre-made patties which aren't the same quality as Fuddruckers'. These patties have 90 degree angles on them: pre-fab.

Been to Stage Burger twice, once on opening night and again today. It was OK opening night, but huge improvement today. My burger was amazingly juicy and flavorful. The one issue might be a bit too much bun for the burger; Spiro and I talked about it and he says he wanted buns with flavor and character, and these were the best he could find, so I guess it's OK. Today's experience was great and they were doing a brisk lunch business, so I wish them the best. I'll be back to try other things...

Vagrarian said...

I didn't see any 90-degree angles on any of the burgers. I've eaten at Fuddrucker's; it's OK but I think Stage is better.

I went to Stage Burger today for lunch and I loved it! My burger was big and juicy and the sweet potato fries were yumm-ay! We did have to wait about 10 minutes to get our food but I think that's because they make them to order. It was almost full when I went at 12:30. The bun was a little big, but that's something I can overlook.
