Could anything be more insipid than this? It's the menu for Kellogg's in New York. It contains advertising for other businesses, like orthopedic surgery. Matthew Jones, a friend of my server friend Andrew, posted the picture on Facebook with this comment:
I'm really not feeling advertising inside a restaurant menu, especially illustrations of spinal fractures and balloon kyphoplasty nestled between hot open sandwiches and the crispy cold salad platters. Gross.
I have never run into this before, but Andrew assures me that The Cheesecake Factory also has outside advertising on its menu.
The picture prompted the following thread on Facebook:
Great writeup Austin...Kraig has done a fantastic job curating HopCity's selection and educating his customers…
Some really great events going on this spring, hard to know which ones to visit.
Garden & Gun is my favorite.
When I first started hearing about this place, it was being promoted as a neighborhood…
I'm so proud of you Andrew!! I can't wait to come visit!! All our love…
Its strangely bright in there.
