Honey-betes and a Million Dollars

This weekend, I went to the Meli Cafe, a honey-themed brunch restaurant. "Meli" is, of course, the Greek word for honey. It can be found in such words as diabetes mellitus, mellitology (study of bees), and Weezy. However, for some reason, my preceptor still tells me that I shouldn't tell the patients that they "have honey-betes."

Pictured above: Along with a mountain of pancakes, they serve a small vial filled with honey and a butter infused with honey. Also, every hour a bell rings, and the wait-staff all take a shot of honey so they, too, are infused with honey.

But my favorite part of the restraurant was its sign-board outside.

Pictured above: I guess last week's Belligerent Borscht wasn't a big seller.

Also, it's a good friend's birthday today, so I gave him the world's greatest gift. Money.

  1. You joke about the waitstaff taking shots of honey to become infused with honey, but another term with its greek roots in honey is "mellified man." Pious men at the end of their lives would eat and drink nothing but honey until they excreted only honey. Shortly thereafter, the men would die (duh), and their bodies would be placed in a crypt of honey for a hundred years. After that period of time, pieces of mellified man would be prescribed for everything from pneumonia to broken limbs. Yeah.
