Don’t look now but it looks like a fight is about ready to go down. (also pictured: scrabble and dominoes watching.)
Great pubs to me are simply public living rooms. They are places that offer shelter from the storm, a chance to meet up with an old friend and a place that sometimes just fills the time between the points in your life. Sometimes, you need things that fill that time in your life when you ventured into a pub. And let’s face it, surely you don’t come here to just see me, at least I hope not.
We have some very special things heading your way over the next couple weeks that will add to our experience and give you yet another reason to put on your coat and jump in your car or scooter or put one foot in front of the other and head our way.
Our first entry are a few classic games you can play with a friend in our pub. Scrabble, chess, checkers and dominoes are our first entries into this category and we will over time add a few more as people request. I wouldn’t expect to see any of those new games here. The ones where people have to draw funny pictures and blurt out crazy words and everyone gets all riled up playing trying to win. You can do that in your own living room.
Our games will be the ones I used to play over the holidays with my siblings growing up to pass the time at my grandma’s house. Though looking back at it, I wish I would have spent that time visiting with her but as a young lad I still thought people lived forever.
Cheers and thanks for reading!
*NOTE: Just in case you haven’t noticed but I am sure most of you have. This was originally intended to be a daily blog encompassing the first 100 days with a new item added each day. Unfortunately, I combined a few days into one rather than have single entries for each ( ex. 5 flags into 1 and 4 games into one day) and then I realized it is quite expensive to add something that isn’t junk every day to the pub and sure we are doing alright for a new place but money still doesn’t grow on trees.
Hello earthlings. I have been sent here to open a brewery. I hope you have time over the next year to check in from time to time and see our progress (or lack there of at times).
