Well, sort of ...
(Click any photo to enlarge)
This mural, on the wall of a Foley's, a local Reno bar, owned by an Irishman, reminds me a little of some the pubs found, back home, in New Zealand and also in Britain, Australia and Ireland.
Foley's is about two blocks from where I live and is the only place in Reno where I can watch rugby on TV.
It was where I cried into my beer, when the All Blacks (NZ's national rugby team) bombed out of the 2008 Rugby World Cup. I was depressed for a couple of days over that one!! I was kind of glad I didn't wander over and watch the match, the other day, between the AB's and France. The AB's lost that one as well.
Foley's also do some nice Fish & Chips and Shepherd's Pie ...plus a traditional English style breakfast..
It also tends to be a gathering place for all the expat British, Irish, Welsh, Australian and the occasional Kiwi .... so I feel quite at home ...as in, most of them know what I'm talking about and I don't need to translate my Kiwi English into American English. :-)
Fish & Chips, Shepherd's Pie ... Oh My !!
The Mrs and the friend seem to be having a grand old time. Hubby looks a bit bored though, don't you think ? :-)
Love those fur lined slippers. :-)
Now, go to MY WORLD TUESDAY where people from all over our globe , show off their little corner of the world !
