Did you have a restaurant in your town when you were growing up that you thought was pretty fancy, but upon maturing you realize that it was just a mid-range seafood restaurant with a bunch of fake seafaring memorabilia on the walls? For me, that place was Sea Galley, a Pacific Northwest regional chain that, because of where it was located, probably actually had pretty good seafood, along with all the nets and buoys and anchors all over the place. I imagine that with these kinds of ads, though, Sea Galley might not have been as fancy as I thought, as fancy restaurants generally don’t promote themselves with singing monster-crustacean-waiters literally embodying the restaurant’s claim that they’ve “got crab legs.” I never had the crab legs; I probably tried to eat my age in pounds of fried shrimp instead.
