I recently took a trip to Miami, FL, and on my way driving, I saw an Alcazar Restaurant (I believe off the Palmetto Expressway, though I'm not sure) and later an Alcazar Avenue in Coral Gables (an upper-class suburb of Miami; where the University of Miami is located). It can be found on MapBlast (and I'll bet other mapping sites) by looking for Alcazar Ave., Coral Gables, FL.
Was the "Bicyclops Built for Two" character's name spelled Alkazar or Alcazar? Maybe the writers (unintentionally) got the name from this place.

EDIT: Fixed URL. But it still doesn't work. So I got rid of it.

And I was looking at my calendar, and I saw Friday, or "Fry-day," and maybe the producers were influenced by that, too.  Coincidence?  I think so!

Alcazar/Alkazar is a pretty common Spanish name (or so have I been led to believe) meaning "castle" or "citadel". I think they just plucked it out if the air.

Don't even ask why I knew so much about Alcazar, it's a stupid story.

Cool, Teral! I didn't know that. That explains...well..everything. I'll shut up now.
