Everyone has a pet peeve or two, and I am no different. One thing that always gets to me are stupid names for businesses. Every time I’m in Dayton I have the unfortunate opportunity to drive past “Sherwood Florist.” Robin Hood is one of my favorite stories/movies and seeing that just makes me roll my eyes and keep on driving. If I ever need flowers “Flowerama’ is one block down…now doesn’t that sound like a party!?
I guess I should mention why I’m talking about the poorly named florist shop. While driving by on Dorothy Lane the other day I noticed a new sign next to the flower shop. Sage green and nicely designed “Amici’s” sign was a bit small but easily seen.
Amici’s is just under a month old and is already getting its name out there with its specialty pizzas and comfortable atmosphere. When I drove by, in typical fashion, I pointed in a general direction and yelled to Tim, “I want to eat there!” He had no idea what I said and I had to spend the next mile or two explaining what I saw.
