Cut-up Dick's Last Resort cuts a fishing line for some reason
Dick's Last Resort has its grand opening at the Inner Harbor today.
"The new Dick’s Last Resort in the Inner Harbor is hosting a ribbon-cutting (or more accurately, a fishing line-cutting) on Thursday morning to officially welcome itself to the neighborhood," says the e-mail from a Dick's PR rep. "To thank Baltimore for the warm welcome (literally, since they opened amidst that awful heat wave a few weeks back), all seafood buckets are 1/2 price for lunch on Thursday, from 11:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m."
I know Dick's is a guy's guy restaurant. (The menu features "A** Byte Burgers," "Lil Cluckers" chicken tenders, and a double chicken breast entree called the "Dolly Parton." Get it? Breasts? Dolly Parton? That Dick is such a card!)
But even given the good ol' boy shtick, I'm not sure I get that fishing line-cutting. Is it Dick's Last Resort or Dick's Sporting Goods?
Here's what the PR person said about that.
"It's more of a nod to being located in the Inner Harbor," she said via e-mail. "The idea is rather than a traditional ribbon, which is not really Dick's style, we're using a fishing line that will be decked out with 'stuff,' so it looks like Dick has been out trolling the waters and getting stuff caught on his fishing line."
