anti-gay remarks. Well, not all controversies are so loud. The other night while dining in Park Slope's Talde, we noticed a drink called the Obama Punch. Was the Top Chef winner trying to endorse a candidate in the 2012 election? Actually, no.
The drink was originally called the Pacquiao Punch, after the famous Filipino boxer. When he came out against gay marriage, the folks at Talde quietly changed the name of the drink to protest his stance. This was back in May, when social media wasn't quite so aflutter with everyone announcing their feelings on the matter. As the restaurant put it: the drink has the "same great taste, without the intolerance."
