uh, don't we want the priests,pastors,etc to think about the children a little less often?

Baptist pastors are allowed to get married and have kids, so they don't generally have the same problems as those who report to the Vatican.

Perhaps it is not as prolific, but don't necessarily sell them short when it comes to those "problems".

Damn. Got to get off this tangent.

Can't wait for the Posting House. The first pint is on me, Jaxons!

This is on the Oct 4 meeting agenda. I expect an easy approval considering it is replacing half of the old Layla/Mezze space.

Am I missing something?  How are they going to potentially fit 99 seats in that place?  I count 38 in that layout shown.

Since they need a few zoning exceptions (liquor distance waiver, parking deviation, sale/service, etc).. they are likely submitting a seating capacity of up to 99 seats to max out the space if they wanted to. The way the zoning code works, you ask for the max when you are paying someone to navigate your approvals, etc. You may get a reduced seating capacity as a condition of the exceptions... or you may only have 40 seats on a normal night... but if you host some big event and expect the bar to be jam packed with 75 drunk Englishmen yelling about the World Cup, you don't want to have some arbitrary seating cap limit your ability to make money... or go back and ask for another exception.

1,600 square feet with no kitchen space is actually a decent-sized shell for a fire marshal-approved seating capacity of 100 people.

Yeah so no food?  Isn't half the point of a pub the food?

Yeah, I saw that too and wondered the same thing. It's not really much of a 'pub' and more of a bar. That said, I guess a pub isn't strictly required to serve food - but really...what's the point?

There was a mention of "limited food options" but I thought the point of the pub was the pint.
And maybe some darts.

Maybe they'll have crisps for you to snack on.  As someone who loved the O'bros and London Bridge fish and chips, this was a disappointment to me.

Posting House approved. Yes!

They will also offer teas,kombucha, and coffee. Because I needed yet another walkable place to drink coffee. It really is all about me.
