Poll: The correct pronunciation of Berbiglia



It felt like a prank call. Nervously dialing the number for a local liquor store, hoping the clerk who answered could settle a bar bet simply by saying the store's name. Ostensibly calling to find out the hours, my dinner companion was hoping to discover the correct pronunciation of Berbiglia.

"Burr-big-lia," answered the clerk at 4500 Belleview Road. "Burr-buhh-hmmm," said the counter guy hurriedly at 1215 Westport Road. "Ber-Bee-Lia," said the clerk at 21 West 63rd Street. So after a blind sampling of three stores, we were no closer to settling the bet. As such, consider this my ask the audience lifeline.
