where people sit for hours...



God bless the cameraphone! I passed this "60's ballad and acoustic guitar" themed bar on my way home yesterday.

(if anyone can come up with something better than my extremely lame title...)

How about:

Where Everybody Knows Your Name

Or:

Just the place for a quick stiffener.

Or:

"Come and try out famous White Russian!!"

Or, no, is that horrible?

I'll get me coat said...

At least it's not a juice bar.

You know that all American radio stations have a 4 letter call sign, East of the Mississippi they begin with W and west with K, there was a station in Long Beach where I used to hang out, it's call sign was KNOB, it was the jazz knob!

Or perhaps I should have said:

Where Everybody Knows You're Game

They could have gone with "The knob & balls" to make it sound more pub-like at least.

I think japanther's having us on. If you look at this in a mirror, you will see clearly that it is BONK

When I first moved to Bournemouth (I was going to say: I came across.. but I'll re phrase that) we discovered a lot of pubs called 'The Dorset Knob' never once did we laugh.

now I'm in Norfolk:
Many would like to enter 'The Cock Inn'
but my favorite for the more solitary drinker:
'Cock & pullet'
as I'm a grown up I don't find this at all funny ..he he he.

My favourite club/bar (not sure, never fancied actually going inside) near us in Odakyu-Sagamighara was called Virgin Swing. Over the road was Bar Janis, Club Nightmare and Bar Moussy.

I think "Just the place for a quick stiffener." has got to be the winner! NIce one.

No matter how old and sensible I get (which is not very much at all it seems), these kind of things will never cease to raise a smile.

@tracyk - every playground should have virgin swing!

When I was visiting a m8 in a small North Dakota town - and I mean small - he took me to the town's only bar: The Happy Beaver.

I thought they coulda done more with the entrance, but inside was nice and snug and cosy.

tincanman said...

oops. I just remembered, it was The Eager Beaver

Blimpy said...

I'll see you guys down the Moat & Expenses at nine - drinks are on everyone!

sourpus said...

If it were a bar near me, I wouldn't use it as a rule


Boom boom! hahaha... as a rule...hahah...oh please yourselves!

I'm guessing there are rules about signage in Japan that this falls just short of breaking. People will push though. Give them an inch...
