Big Board for Bernard





I spent yeasterday afternoon and a coupla hours today working on a big 8 x 4 foot bit of MDF which will be used every Sunday in the Bernard Shaw. They open from 12pm on Sundays so you can head down and read the papers and if you feel up for it stay on for a few pints until 12am. Only if you have your homework done first of course.

Look, there's actual Sun in the photos! In Ireland!

I thought it would be nice to have the beasts let off a little steam and dance around the woods. While I was sketching it the first Daft Punk album was on in the background of the pub. They go perfectly with Around the World...

Brilliant. I might be tempted to ramble over to the GBS; just to see the decor, you understand.

I miss those Sunday mornings. I cannot put my finger on why American bars are not like our pubs. I think part of it is not being able to go in for soup and sangwiches at lunch time, or to sit quietly on a Sunday morning to read the papers. Even Irish pubs here have a certain sticky carpet, only come alive after 10pm feel to them--just not pub.

I must get a bit of video of a Sunday morning pub with clients reading the papers etc. Emma could show it to a local bar and see if they get the message.

PS. Eamon Morrissey, who did his one-man show on 'The Brother' (Myles na Gopaleen), was shopping at our local Lidl this morning. I was tempted to shout 'A Pint of Plain is Your Only Man', but desisted.
