Denise Whiting, owner of Cafe Hon, sings Christmas carols with family outside of her restaurant. A protest was held in objection to the trademarking of the word, "Hon," on an oval label, by Denise Whiting. Frank Noe holds a sign in protest of the trademark. He says, "I just feel this is Baltimore's word. It shouldn't belong to one person who holds it and can profit by it anytime.... I have no ill will against the owner.
