Up In Smoke

There’s a new joint in town and authorities are not too hip on it.

Cannabis lived a short life as the name of a new sushi-bar in Pinamar.

It’s opposite our favorite video rental shop in the new and trendier part of town. We saw it on the grand opening day, freshly painted and with chairs and tables set up outside and doors open for visitors.

The owners, no doubt, were thinking what a smoking name for the joint.

But the town officials weren’t so amused.

A day later we went to return the video and there across from us the “C” was gone. It had been replaced by a “W.”

A promotion of the high life replaced by an endorsement of trying to be something you’re not: Wannabis.

    I guess that socialism is a mite bit farther from social freedom and freedom of expression than the town leaders might have tourists and vacationers enjoying. This is a funny commentary on the local administration, I think. Wait until it opens and then respond to the outcry of the establishment, I guess. Did you ever see Chocolat?

    I did see Chocolat but so long ago. I will have to watch it again.
