Pagliacci and #seattlestereotypes

If you follow me on Twitter (@MsHoughton) or Instagram (@beforetoday7), you may have seen me using the hashtag #seattlestereotypes both for positive and negative behaviors, comments, and practices I observe in the Emerald City. I found one today when I unearthed this Pagliacci ad. Pagliacci’s is one of our local pizza joints¬†(We are fortunate that there are many! BTW, I need to give a shout out to two that just recently opened, Dino’s Tomato Pie¬†and Meltdown Pizza Co).

Here’s the front of their ad, designed (IMHO) to resemble the Trader Joe’s Frequent Flyers that we often receive.

Cute, right? Comics and graphic novels are a pretty big deal around here. But here’s where it gets super-Seattle-y.

Pagliacci02WHY YES THAT IS A BOOK SUGGESTION LIST ON THE BACK PAGE OF THE PIZZA AD.

Bravo, Seattle.
