Continuing the "If it's not about Judaism or the Baby-Sitter's Club, it doesn't go on the blog" theme...

This evening (Friday) Daniel and I went to Chaba Thai, a Thai restaurant in Northeast Portland. And I swear to God, when I heard the name of the place, the first thing I thought was, "Chaba Thai? I wonder if they named the restaurant after Shabbatai Zvi, the false Jewish messiah who converted to Islam in 1666 after leading hundreds of thousands of European Jews astray."

I think it's safe to say that they did not name Chaba Thai after Shabbatai Zvi.
