Pink Taco's owners make bid to name Cards stadium

Louie Villalobos
The Arizona Republic

First, they shook up the Scottsdale establishment. Now the family behind the Pink Taco restaurant chain is rattling the Arizona Cardinals' cage.

Would you believe Pink Taco Stadium? That's what the Morton family, famous for creating the Hard Rock Café and Morton's Steakhouse, is saying they want to name Cardinals Stadium.

They are offering $30 million for 10 years as evidence of their commitment and are promising to pursue an agreement with the Arizona Cardinals.


One problem. The Cardinals, who control the stadium's naming rights, said they want no part of that name.

Harry Morton, president and CEO of Pink Taco, said his group is prepared to use the $30 million as a starting point. He held a press conference Monday to announce the stadium proposal.

The family said it offered the Cardinals a $5 million good faith check during a meeting last week to show that they are serious about the proposal.

The Cardinals took the presentation as a joke and dismissed the Monday press conference by the family as a publicity stunt.

"There is zero chance of this happening," said Mark Dalton, director of media relations for the Cardinals. "We are in serious and legitimate naming rights discussion with several companies, this is not one of them."

Locally, the restaurant, named after a slang term for the vulva, caused a stir in Scottsdale when Mayor Mary Manross objected to the restaurant's opening in Scottsdale's Waterfront project.

Dalton said the team doesn't wanted to be associated with the Pink Taco brand, but wouldn't say exactly why.

Morton said on Monday that his family is very serious about the naming deal. He plans to meet with the Arizona Cardinals in the coming days. The Cardinals said there is no scheduled meeting.

The family dismissed the team's reaction as a "knee jerk" one and stated the proposal was not an attempt to get more publicity for the restaurant.

"We're talking about $30 million," he said. "That's an expensive publicity stunt."

A Pink Taco restaurant will be opened in Los Angeles early next year. The company is working on building a second restaurant in Arizona and looking at future sites in San Diego, San Francisco, Chicago and Dallas.

I think the Morton's should have talked with China about naming their new Olympic stadium instead.

"So where's the game next week? Oh, I'm playing in Pink Taco."

"The friendly confines of Pink Taco."

"Humidity has been a problem here in Pink Taco."

"He could. Go. ALL. THE WAY today in Pink Taco."



Sorry, but I couldn't resist.

The ball has been kicked deep to the deepest end of pink taco stadium. Here's the return. Ohh, he ran into the goalposts. There is blood everywhere. Time for the cleanup crew. The stadium is closed for the next week. There will be no visitors allowed, or the stadium director will get very surly.

This has to be the worst idea I have heard in awhile. I know they are only kicking the name around for publicity, but I would hope the owner has SOME respect for the team that plays there. I know the days of a stadium named after the team are over, but we could try not to move into shame. (Yes I know the idea was turned down, but I wouldn't be shocked to see someone take them up on it.)

The Pink Taco is packed for today's game.

I'll be home in 20 minutes. I'm pulling out of The Pink Taco

parking lot now.

Cardinals score often inside the Pink Taco.

Sprinkler malfunction gets everyone wet in the Pink Taco.

just when it seems like the cardinals have turned it around and seem respectable, they give the rest of the world a gem like this.

As Adrian Cronauer said--it's hot and wet; that's fine if yuse with the ladies but it sucks if yuse in the jungle.

Aside--how the heck do you spell that yuse guys thing from above the Mason Dixon line?

They have a great website. Look out for the wrestlers!

Don't move the mouse over the waitress, she might drop her dishes.

They also have a link to e-mail the Cardinals.

The Pink Taco is very easy to get into.
The Pink Taco is very wide and spacious.
The seafood kitchen has the Pink Taco smelling like fish.
I love being the first one into the Pink Taco.
You can remove the grass from the surface of the Pink Taco.
It takes over 50,000 men to fill the Pink Taco.
