More than 2,800 names submitted by customers

June 26, 2006 | CHARLESTON, SC, June 26, 2006 – Sticky Fingers RibHouse officially names its newest menu item – seasoned, crispy shoestring onion rings served with special dipping sauce – Git-R-D’onions.

Since it debuted at area Sticky Fingers in March, the onion dish was called Nameless Onion Thingy. The three owners of the Mt. Pleasant-based restaurants challenged customers to make their mark on the restaurant's menu more permanent than sauce-covered fingerprints.

The entry by John Irvine of Chattanooga, Tenn., topped more than 2,800 other names submitted by customers across the Southeast. Irvine gets his – Git-R-D’onions free as long as it's on the menu.

Co-owners Todd Eischeid, Jeff Goldstein and Chad Walldorf, who made good on a childhood pact to open Sticky Fingers in 1992, hotly debated dozens of names that made the final cut before settling on Git-R-D’onions. Some of their favorite rejects include:

Sticky Onion Strings
OooWee Onion
Friedalia Onions
Onion Smunion
Shoe String Onions
Southern Calamari
South Carol’onions
Second To N'onions
State Of The Onion
Don't Cry For Me Onion Thingy

Sticky Fingers is sending coupons for a free appetizer of Git-R-D’onions to each customer that offered a suggestion, no matter how bad.

Sticky Fingers is a casual rib house concept with 16 locations in the Southeast -- 11 in the Carolinas, two in Tennessee, two in Florida and the newest in Savannah, Ga. The success of Sticky Fingers restaurants has generated mail order, catering and wholesale barbecue sauce business.
