    get into pawn

    Hi,

    A:What is 'd' and 'c' and where is it?
    B: Google it...If I remember right, it is 402 Chapel Street.
    C: Did you get into pawn and co?

    I've seen this conversation in a cell phone blonging to a friend of mine. Could you tell me what 'get into pawn and co' means?

    Thanks.

    It could be the name of a business; perhaps Prawn & Co. with a missing letter.

    Re: get into pawn

    Pawn & Co is a nightclub in South Yarra, Victoria, Australia. Its address is indeed 402 Chapel Street. C appears to be asking if B successfully gained entry to that nightclub.

    Taken from its Facebook page: "Pawn and Co., the first bar in the Universe where everything is for sale, from the chair you sit on to the glass you hold, to the 1940's taxidermy albino kangaroo, has now opened its doors."

    Drunk people and impulse buying. What a combination!

    Re: get into pawn

    So does the flip side work? I mean if it's a pawn shop, then shouldn't I be able to put stuff in hock to pay off my bar tab?

    Good lord, the possibilities that could have created when I was in college....probably just as well it wasn't possible. The twice-weekly plasma donations for spending money created enough literal headaches.
