Corner Pub & Grill (13645 Big Bend Road; 636-225-1300) co-owner Brant Baldanza couldn't stop laughing for about an hour last night when he saw the restaurant's newest case of check presenters. Why? Instead of the logo imprinted on the black folders, 64 of them literally say "Restaurant Logo Here."

"We're still laughing our asses off about this," Baldanza tells us.

Baldanza says the Corner Pub works with a credit card processing company that provides them with check presenters. He's gotten ones with the restaurant's logo before, and the processing company rep asked if they needed more blank ones about six weeks ago.

"I said no, I don't need blank ones, I need ones with the restaurant logo here. Five weeks later, a whole case of these shows up," he says. It's also been one of OG Hospitality Group's most popular social media posts ever. Baldanza's group also owns Cucina Pazzo, the Tavern and the Shack, and he says whenever they post an offer for free soup when you mention the Facebook post, there's no response. But the goof has gotten over 50 responses on Facebook in one hour.

"Hell yeah I'm gonna use them, are you kidding me?" Baldanza says. "I'm using them right now. It's hysterical."
