Bringing the revolution to...Rhode Island?

Sheesh! It's bad enough that Che Guevara's image has come to represent the spirit of revolution on t-shirts, coffee mugs, and posters. Now it adorns, along with the image of Fidel Castro, a restaurant in Providence, RI, called Cuban Revolution! According to their website, this restaurant "is much more than a place to find great food at a great price with great atmosphere. We honor the revolutionary spirit of individuals who struggle against tyranny and oppression, fight big government and corporate greed, while giving their lives in the fight against injustice -- wherever it exists. ... We honor those who have fought in the name of revolution. And we openly question the sordid history of US policy and the economic embargo directed against Cuba and its people."

The owners are soliciting potential franchisees. I wonder how this restaurant concept would go over in Florida.

Thanks to Emiliano Antunez for his tip about this.

Anyone else notice the problem of a restaurant claiming to honor those who rebel against "big government" by displaying a picture of Fidel Castro?

However misguided they are, it's perhaps a sign of progress that "big government" is now a dirty word even in those circles.
