My Good Name(s)

For quite some time, humans have been having at the task of naming things. Sometimes it has been handled poorly, sometimes well. To promote more instances of the latter, I present the following awards.

Best Coffee Blend Name: Foglifter
Best Bar Name: Be Here Now (Asheville, NC)
Best Store Name: The Gittin' Place (Horshoe Bend, ID)
Best Song Name: TIE between Love on the Rocks with No Ice (The Darkness) and Drop Kick Me, Jesus, Through the Goalposts of Life (Paul Craft)
Best Gas Station Name: Stinker
Best Coffeeshop Name: TIE between Buzz City (Cascade, ID) and The Supreme Bean (Philadelphia, PA)
Best Convenience Store Name: The Road Pantry (Carol Stream, IL)
Best Menu Item Name: The Beltbuster (some roadside restaurant in Michigan)
Best Grocery Store Name: Piggly Wiggly

I know there are more... please help by establishing your good name(s) in the comments below, or by disputing my above selections. The only criteria is that you have to have actually encountered the name in real life.
