@TimoricThere was once a place on Richmond Avenue that was called the Trail Dust Steakhouse. They'd cut off your tie and nail it to the wall if you wore one inside.

That sounds like it might be a liability. Then again, I've heard stories of all sorts of strange restaurants with concepts that wouldn't fly today (and dubious back then).

I think the idea was you wear a big fat ugly 70s tie at the time and have them cut it off and take a Polaroid with your friends. I just wanted my dad to take me to Lionel Playworld or the Original Christmas Tree Store back in those days.
