Fuentes y Paz

September 2019 Fake Ad

by Jay Forstner

From the October, 2019 issue

We received 178 entries correctly identifying last month's Fake Ad for Fuentes y Paz restaurant.

"The Fake Ad is on page 91 for Fuentes y Paz," writes the always erudite David Karl. "Verily, the verduous and viridescent victuals viewed in the verdant and viridian ad really whet my sprouting and virescent appetite. Uh ... although I'm not sure Carlos [Fuentes] and Octavio [Paz] would've gotten along well enough to run a restaurant successfully. Who knows, stranger things have happened."

"Nice touch hiding the previous winner's last name in a Spanish (and also Latin) expression that sounds roughly like Julius Caesar's famous remark, 'Venn, vidi, vici,'" wrote Brighton's Emily Brown. "He came, he saw, he conquered at the Battle of Zelda, and used those words to report his victory to the Roman Senate, so maybe that's Latin food for thought!"

Reading those entries, aren't you glad you participate in this contest? Are you not entertained?

Brown won our drawing, and is taking her gift certificate to the Common Grill.
