Just a bit of the “old sod” if you will

jo_joes_text.jpg

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!

    Has anyone yet been seen perusing the much-talked-of “small library” & it’s enviable stock of Reader’s Digest condensed books?

    Reader’s Digest Condensed Books, including those classics: “The Karamazov Brother”, “A Tale of One City” and “War”.

    And at the new eatery, enjoy them by “window light” in any of the church pews.

    Too much fuel for snark. Too too much.

    Although, Reader’s Digest gets praise for owning one of the early two letter urls (www.rd.com) locked in before the ICANN folks (or someone of the sort) said, “no more of that.”

  5. I every time spent my half an hour to read this webpage’s posts everyday along with a mug of coffee.
