The 9.4 Best New Jokes About Pitchfork (Not The Site, The Just-Opened Chicago Restaurant)

pitchforkrestaurant 206x120 The 9.4 Best New Jokes About Pitchfork (Not The Site, The Just Opened Chicago Restaurant)Last night, friend of Idolator Marah Eakin broke the news that there was a new restaurant opening near her home in Chicago—and it was called, oddly enough, the Pitchfork Saloon, even though it has no relation to the tastemaking music reviews-and-news site that’s also based in the City Of Big Shoulders. From the looks of things, the place looks like your typical neighborhood joint—chili and chicken-finger apps, half-price bourbon on Tuesdays, something called the “Pitchfork Build-A-Burger.” But the coincidental nomenclature just begged for a few one-liners to be tossed off, what with the combination of food-borne jokes and music geekery being irresistible. So I decided to open the floodgates of our Twitter account to the best Pitchfork-as-restaurant-related jokes. And the laughter flowed through! After the jump, the top 9.4 one-liners.


9.4 “Best new potatoes.” [@harvilla, a.k.a. Village Voice music editor Rob Harvilla]
9. “Come listen to us talk about food, then go steal it from the kitchen!” [@marathonpacks, a.k.a. Eric Harvey]
8. “You probably don’t want to see our kitchen—we have a Modest Mouse problem.” [@televisionarie, a.k.a. Leah]
7. “What are you waiting for? Book your private party in Juan’s Basement today.” [@michaelhoinski, a.k.a. Michael Hoinski]
6. “How many times can mahi-mahi be Best New Catch?” #achicagorestaurantnamedpitchfork” [@triablo, a.k.a. Dave Raposa]
5. “We know your taste and serve it to you lukewarm.” [@idorapark, a.k.a. Daphne Carr]
4. “The waiter comes back once to refill your water, and four times after that to update you on the Wavves/Black Lips feud.” [@namethebats, a.k.a. Garrett Neese]
3. “The daily specials are a sly nod to the chef’s early menus, hearkening back to his pre-1986 seminal street food work.” [@timoni, a.k.a. Timoni Grone]
2. “Also on the drink menu: Pitchfork Iced Tea, which is like a Long Island Ice Tea but includes Travis Morrison’s tears.” [@imaginarychrisb, a.k.a. Chris Burlingame]
1. “I hear the new Lambchop is good. And it comes with 2 sides!” [@dpaul428, a.k.a. Dave Paulson]
