You still can’t find a decent man?
“…Still we’re told, ‘seek and ye shall find.’
Buying it ?
Don’t matter, baby. Go listen to Amy Winehouse sing ‘Someone to Watch Over Me.’ Then march yourself over to Saint & Sinners Pub in Woodside.
Rectangular bar in the middle of the room. Dining room in the back. Alcove with a fireplace looking out onto Roosevelt Avenue. A bevy of beers on draft including Sam Adams Boston Lager ($6) and Smithwicks. Dark cozy lighting. Eight Hi-def TV’s on the walls. Comfortable leather bar chairs. Framed black and white photographs from Ireland on the walls. A bartender from Dublin who wins your heart the minute she walks over: “How you doing, hun?” And a thump thump from the pub’s sound system that makes you forget everything.
Funny thing is that when #thekidfromqueens sat for his Sam Adams beer there were just two women in the pub except for the bartender and a waitress.
So, why you sitting home and dreaming?
Inside Saints & Sinners you’ll find the types you read about. They rush into buildings to save those trapped in rooms. They hammer nails into 2 x 4’s. Their hands are coarse, but their hearts are large. They look you in your eye when they talk. You see their happiness and their sadness. And any minute, you expect one of them to turn to you and recite a line from a William Butler Yeats poem.
So, what are you waiting for, baby?
Saints & Sinners serves breakfast, lunch and dinner. Their dinner specials change daily. The specials go something like this: a Soup of the Day (Beef Barley, $5), Appetizers (Chicken Parmesan Flat Bread $9.95), Entrees (Lemon Chicken, $17.95), Dessert (Baileys Cheese Cake, $7).
Oh yeah, you don’t have to dress like a star. That’s not my line. It’s Amy’s.
Want to know something else?
Amy would have been happy you stepped off Roosevelt Avenue and took a chair inside The Saint & Sinners Pub.
Want to know why?
Because, without girls like you there would be no fun.
Happy Thanksgiving, baby.
