The Octagon Bar: It's Getting A Bit Warm In Here

Give'r.

Welcome weary travelers!

We've been kicked around the corner, we've been known by different names but it's time to reopen the Octagon Bar!

...Stop in for a coffee or tea in the morning, bring your newspaper and sit in our soft leather couches. For lunch, come in and have a cocktail. Your boss will never know. When work is over, stop in for Happy Hour; you can be assured that your presence will not go unnoticed. Late nights are the best and the most wicked; the patrons are a frisky lot, but always friendly.

The Octagon Bar is located on the first floor of the Clarence Hotel in Dublin, Ireland. U2 are part owners of this magnificent watering hole and we seek to reproduce the camaraderie of a pub, complete with bar fights, dancing girls, and moderators who shut us down when the noise or the post count gets too high.

May I suggest that you order a drink, ask one of the lovelies or one of the gents for a , or perhaps you want to play a song on the jukebox. Share pictures of your kids and yourselves. Don’t be shy--by morning we’ll forget your face anyway.

This is a patron-run bar, so if the bartender is asleep in the back, or cuddled up on the couch with one of the patrons, go and pour a drink for your mate. The drink selection is only limited by your imagination. So dream out loud!

--Tim (starsforu2)

** Unfolds daily paper, sits on the couch and gives an approving to the new power couple somewhere in PA **

Hello gang.

** Pulls off sweater because of the intense heat emanating from the radioactive hammock that Ewen and Abby occupied **

** Pulls a swig of coffee from my favorite Starbucks Barista while thinking of something witty to say **

Nope, nothing witty to say. Bye!

Hi Tim.

Sweaty... working out...


I'm just amazed I can lift my head up today.

I wasn't feeling ambitious enough to work out this morning.

I believe I'll plop down on the couch with a cafe mocha and take in the soothing atmosphere.

I left work 2 hours early yesterday, per my boss's suggestion. She also told me if it's quiet today (which it is, so far), I should leave early and go enjoy the day...go shopping or something...and just have the office phone calls transfer to her cell. I'm on salary, so...don't have to twist my arm.

This new job rocks.

I just cut the grass in the sweltering (for Ireland) heat. I'm all sweaty too. I'm going to have a shower when the current shower occupant gets out. Cold showers

Hello April!

** Scans iPod selection and attempts to select soothing music for SoBe **

How about Beck's Lost Cause? It's kind a pleasant sing-song quality to it, even if it's kind of depressing in it's theme.

Sea Change is such a gorgeous album. Depressing as hell, but still...


I'm taking an early lunch today. Naps.
