That’s some green bean!

Gazette staff April 3rd, 2013

“Wow, what a deal!” wisecracked Jay Leno during a March 25 “Small Town News” segment on The Tonight Show. The object of The Chin’s snark? None other than a coupon from Oklahoma City’s Paseo Grill advertising “a fried green bean” with the purchase of two entrees.

The shtick caught Paseo Grill coowner Joe Jungmann by surprise.

“My initial reaction was shock that we sent out an advertisement that was not proofread,” he said, “but then I realized that Paseo Grill made The Tonight Show.”

And any press is good press, so say the people who make up sayings about press.

“Actually, we were just flattered to make The Tonight Show,” said Elise Fischbein, the restaurant’s director of operations. “Now, we’re aiming to make Letterman’s ‘Top 10.’”
