Speaking of unnecessary letters, why do they put an "E" on the end as in " Ye Olde Towne Tavern" for example, like some restaurants and bars do? And what the hell is a "Ye" supposed to be? It's THE

Pretentious fucktards, the place was built in 2006, hell the building you knocked down to put it there wasn't THAT fekkin' old.

They get to charge more for the hamburgere and frenche friese. Also the beere.
My GPS just told me to turn left, then turn left, then turn left, then turn left.
So if I go too far left do I end up right?

Humph, I don't think so. Just a thinly veiled attempt to impart some faux historic credentials to what is basically a ratty ass beer joint.

The only one that has even remote credentials is the Horse Brass Pub in Portland, it's patterned after an English pub but at least they can spell and their scotch eggs and fish and chippies with mushy peas are decent. Not to mention Boddingtons among others on tap.

Come to think of it Purdy's Public House in Bonney Lake has scotch eggs, killer fish and chips as well as shepherds pie and a bunch of German crap as well. And it's right down the road from me kinda' so that's a plus.

I’ve only a slight uphill ramble to a genuine imported Irish pub.
Disassembled, catalogued, packed and shipped to Canada for reassembly, they do a jovially potent seven (or five for quitters) flight of the Waters of Life.

Lucky you that it's uphill going rather than coming back.
Puts gravity on your side when you need it most.

There’s no such thing as gravity.
I saw that on the Internet.
So it’s obviously true.

I find going downhill is harder on my knees than up hill, the pavement is hard on my hands either way.

Someday, I’d like to climb the North Face of the Uxbridge road.

A 1% grade is truly a monumental challenge. You’re going to need a massive support team.

I shall approach a nearby coffee and doughnut franchise for seed funding to start a viral « Go ‘Fund’ Youself » campaign.
