While walking down Wilson Boulevard towards Clarendon the other day, before I hit the 7-11, there was a plaque in a field by the sidewalk. It noted a failed restaurant, and said it had been the nation's only combination "sushi and cigar bar".

The plaque looks new - has anyone else seen it? It's actually ON the ground, not on a stand, so you won't see it unless you're walking.

If I get a chance, I'm going to take a picture of it soon...

Was this in the Dreaderal Triangle? Off the top of my head, I can't think of what this could possibly be.

Ah thanks guys.

And while I love both cigars and sushi, I can't imagine combining them...

Ningaloo served sushi and sold cigars. It was the smokiest bar on Earth until it became Dremo.

It's a spoof, and a darned funny one, but it also sounds like it's true!
