The Pub

Hello again! I'm back, finally. It's been a very busy week because we are throwing a party tonight to christen our new pub in the basement. Al's been wanting to do this for a long time, so while we're in a house with a basement, we decided to go for it. It's not exactly a pub because we wanted it to be usable to whoever buys the house next, and we realize that not everyone would want a pub in their home. But I think we did a pretty good job. Or, actually, the guy who built it all for us did a good job. So, here are some pics!



The door on the left is my new storage closet!




Al had his own craft project. These are around the pub--they are the sides of beer 6-packs glued to some kind of wood. I have no idea what it was, but it turned out much nicer that I thought it would when he described his idea to me.


Our carpenter was so awesome. He decided that since he angled the closet, that the wall would just be wasted space, so he built this niche into it. It's the perfect place for all those boxes the scotch came in that Al doesn't want to get rid of.

Welcome back! The pub looks great.

It's freaking great! Looks like a fun place to sit back and enjoy a good Sctoch.

uh-oh....another cyber pub party....with popcorn?

Welcome back. You've missed all excitement over your brother's exciting campaign! You're supposed to be baking us cookies. Forget your party tonight.

Kell said...

Wish you all could have come to the party--with barrels of popcorn and some left over. Yum! But that's the only thing left over. Good Lord, these people can eat!

And I'm very excited about Jay's campaign. We can start a "Vote for Jay, Get a Cookie" campaign. Maybe I can still set up my absentee voting there so I can vote for him.

Oh, this is so cool! Your own pub, bottles of scotch, storage...what more could a gal want?

Susa said...

This is so fun! I never knew anyone with her own pub before!

Hey...we made your cookies last week. AMAZING!!! chocolate and pumpkin...who knew! So we'll help with the campaign baking...maybe I'll even be able to sneak some off to Jay (because they gobble them up here!) Thanks for posting the recipe!

Glad you liked them, Susan! Those are Jay and my hubby's favorite. We'll keep those ovens hot for the campaign!

Wonder what the "pub" looked like AFTER the party - this is just entirely too clean and beautiful!

Very nice. Our basement is storage, piles, and junk. I'm so so so very very jealous.
