Shanachie Pub Sign in Summer


I recently noticed how gloriously colorful the warm and friendly Shanachie Pub's sign is, with the carefully tended flower baskets the owner graciously places at all his properties. I didn't do it justice back around St Patrick's Day, so I decided to post it again now. You can also see the interior from a few months ago.


I'll be out of town for a few days - Mom's 80th birthday!

Happy Birthday to your mom!

Love the Celtic "knot" designs on this sign. I remember the shot of the interior. It looks like a really great place to get together with friends.

Have a great couple of days away!

Pretty flowers. I love those hang-y down-y baskets. I have never had much success with them though.

This photo is definitely prettier than the St. Pat's day photo. And the interior is classically beautiful. Love the color in that photo.

Thanks for the funny comment about octupus balls. I had a good laugh at that one.

Tell your mom everyone in America and the world (well, bloggers anyway) are wishing her Happy 80th Birthday.

I love it when folks take such pride in making things look nice instead of just poking a sign out! Give your mother our best wishes for a grand birthday. Happy Birthday Elaine's Mom!!

Happy birthday to your mom! 80 years old, that's quite an achievement!

I've just discovered you through your too funny take over of Eric's PDP. I drive through Willits often but rarely stop to explore. Now I can. And will.

I think you just wanted an excuse for a cold beer on a hot summer afternoon :)

And before you comment on my 12:01 am post 2-1/2 hours early, it was a mistake ... this time. Really. My finger clipped the return key accidentally.

You tell your mom happy birthday. Are you guys celebrating at the pub?

Flowers are fab.

Now this is the kind of sight I am very familiar with. It's funny but we are opening more bars over in the uk now, and over there I am seeing the word pub a lot.

Thank you all for these great comments. The pub is a good spot of live music Wednesday through Saturday, so if you come through town, it's worth taking a look at.

I had a great weekend with Mom!
