wink The Octagon Bar: What's YOUR Countdown?

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!

40 days to my first U2 concert of this tour!
Probably about 45 days before seeing some US Testjes!
I think about 74 days to U2's concert in Dublin and meeting even more Testje folks!
So that would mean 93 days before seeing U2 in my country!
And thus 96 days to the final U2 concert I'll probably see this tour (still in my home country).

And one day until tomorrow.

What is happening in 95 days? Or are you referring to the 15 July concert in Amsterdam?

She's getting married in 95 days. She's about the dude. We smile and humor her, and when she asks for it.

Yeah, she met the guy right here on Interference

Speaking of countdowns... 9 days until we see U2 for the first time this tour in Denver!

Oh, that dude.

Sorry, I was still in a U2 mindset. So I couldn't imagine people doing something else on 15 July.

Haven't been around here lately. It all went much too fast for me.

Anyway...

Any good wine were, preferably rosé for tonight?

I don't know.... I don't know if I will...

It's too much. I've never been this excited in my life!

Oh and what you just posted in the last thread I could make many many jokes about... *snort*
