Post Preview - Let's Go! Ireland

Update: I changed my post title in case anyone cares about such things...

I'm just dying to get a chance to post about our Sunday afternoon Irish pub experience at O'Malley's Pub in Weston, MO. This place has all the ambience of a true Irish pub, and the sing-a-longs to go with it. I've got video footage and everything (but I cannot upload the video until I can get to Panera's with the free high-speed wifi). Don't get too excited. There is no footage of me or my husband actually singing or anything, although Bob the singer did try very hard to get MBH up on stage to sing a Croatian song or two. "Maybe next time," was the agreement, when Bob learns to play a Croatian song or two. I mean, aside from both being predominantly Catholic countries and having an affinity for polkas, there is not much else that binds the two countries musically. But anyway, we had much fun and I'll be back with the full report, letting the story brew (gah!) for a day or two.

Ooh - can't wait. We have a pub near work that has great food but I've never been in the evening or on a weekend to see if they do the music thing. I should try and do that sometime soon!

Perhaps your MBH can rip out that famous Croatian blues song, Da bi Samo Moja Majka Me Volila kao Te Ona Voli Tebe ("If only my Mom Loved Me Like She Loved You") the next time you're there.

I'm sure he'd be called up for an encore, at which time he'd encourage the patrons to pull out their handkerchiefs or take off their socks to catch the flood of tears as he sings that old Croatian blues ballad, Cura Mi Je Otisla i Sada Mi Psa Pise na Nogu ("My Baby's Gone & My Dog's Pissing on My Leg")

Just suggesting, you know.

Darko, sounds like next time, we need to call you and let you know what time to meet us there. ;-)
