I CAN NOT WAIT for the new Irish Bar that’s going into the space that used to be Jo & Joe’s!!! It’s gonna be the GREATEST! It has all the authentic charm of “Irish World” at Epcot Center in sunny Disney World…no wait, the authentic charm of Durham’s “other” downtown, Southpoint Mall!
Just peeking through the window I’m overjoyed by the EXTREME attention to detail. Even the dust on the bar looks imported from “Irish World.” The church pew booths are all the rage…it’s like going to confession—WITH A BEER!
If I’m lucky, maybe they will hire some of those quaint “characters” like a Catholic Priest to diddle me in one of the booths and make me feel “the shame.” Or maybe, when you’ve had too much of the sauce, the bartenders can whack your knuckles with a ruler!
The pipes, the pipes are calling! You wanted it, you got it! MORE phony “Irish”—it’s the new KEWL!
