TBC--Served at Scottie's Sub.  There are about 100 Google hits; not in Mariani, I don't think.  It's either "Turkey, Bacon, Cheddar" or "Turkey, Bacon, Cheese."  One hit was "Turkey and Bacon Club."
   At Scottie's, the "London Burger" is a "Canadian Bacon Burger."  The "England Burger" is ham, bacon, fried egg, American and Swiss cheese.

FAT MAN PANTS--Seen at the Anchorage Museum of History and Art.
CANTS--Rough timbers, also from a sign at the Museum.
MELITZANO SALATA--From the Museum Cafe.  Roasted eggplant pate served with pita bread, Greek olives and peppers.

   The Museum doesn't buy into the acronym, I guess:

   "Pigs" are devices that travel through the pipeline with the oil flow to clean the pipe or check for carrosion or dents.  The name "pig" comes from the squealing noise the devices sometimes make as they rub against the inside of the pipe.
