had created "consumer confusion" by allowing workers to use the name "Medieval Times Performers United."

Change it to Medieval On a Motherfarker's Ass!  You want a piece of MOMA??

I like smelling fresh horse shiat in front of my table and also being served shiat food.

If you go to a theme restaurant it's not for the food. Hell, any mega chain restaurant really. You get mediocre pre prepped food that requires minimal time and skill to get out to a table. The only decent things might be the drinks and greasy apps. If there is flare or shiat nailed to a wall or a giant corporate logo or phones on the table just enjoy the overpriced drinks and over salty food. And that's just regular crap restaurants. I can't imagine what a full on costumed medieval times restaurant is like.

Caveat. The gimmick restaurants that are Asian (no not Benny Hanna sp?) but like the places with tanks of seafood or windows with dead animals or you get served raw meat you cook at your table. Those are pretty good.

I think those are actually just Asian restaurants.

Well, Chinese, Korean, Japanese, Thai, Vietnamese all very different in cuisine, presentation, authenticity and regional variations. Just don't eat gas station sushi.  🍣

Medieval Times is actually surprisingly not bad, but mostly because most of the meal is typically a giant rotisserie chicken quarter, and it's really hard to fark up rotisserie chicken.

It's been a while since I've gone, but it's a reasonably fun experience. And the people doing the show absolutely deserve to be in a union, because it's not just a floor show. Controlling horses in an indoor arena surrounded by screaming children and drunk suburban dads can't be easy.

Entertainers should be able to unionize regardless.  But yes, with Medieval Times 95% of the point is the show.

There were no utensils but there was lawyers?

The company claims the union is "threatening the established goodwill of Medieval Times" by including the chain's name and medieval-themed imagery in its name and logo.

uh nope, you just did that all by yourself.
 
2022-10-14 5:12:05 AM  
Medieval Times claims the union's imagery "could lead to the mistaken impression" that the union is "somehow endorsed" by the company itself.

Oh no. It *should* be endorsed by the company, you dicks. You should treat labor as your partners in this goofy enterprise, instead of a resource to ruthlessly exploit.

Stop crying about workers having a few rights, give them a limited license to use your IP, and have them out there proudly wearing hats and such with your farking logo on it.

/for $3200/day plus expenses I will provide consulting services in the form of a daily reminder that it is dumb to fark over employees who routinely carry medieval weaponry in the workplace

How in the hell is Medieval Times still even a thing? Who goes to this? The whole concept sounds like a gag from a movie about a terrible restaurant idea.

I mean, it's not something that would be a once a week date, but it's a fun family outing.  The show is fun, and the performers are pretty impressive with the stunts, animal acts,  and fights.

I assumed everyone had been there at least once by now; these places are all over the country.

It's hilarious that they're set up as a storefront at the mall, so when you're done with a small sliver of RennFair, you can stroll down to the Apple store, catch a movie at the cinema, look at whatever fishing shiat people buy at Bass Pro Shop, go play slots in the casino, or buy new shoes at a department store.

When it comes to "Let's have dinner at the RennFaire at the mall" I guess I'm not.

You know, the place that's packed with people and stores? Where are the Apple store, Peloton store, container store, Ann Taylor, lululemon, Pottery Barn, etc. in your city?

They were once infested with rats, then the stores closed and the rats moved in.
