FROGGY BOTTOM PUB & CAFE
IN THE STILL OF THE NIGHT
For night owls, insomniacs, workoholics, the lovelorn and the Europeans… a special edition of the Froggy Bottom Cafe…. In The Still of the Night
Bring in your favorite poem, or your favorite recording… the drinks are on the house, and the coffee is very strong and the books are well-worn and oft-read… in the best FBC tradition of Brother Feldspar… “When I get a little money I buy books; and if any is left I buy food and clothes. – Erasmus”
“How do I love thee? Let me count the ways…”
How do I love thee? Let me count the ways.
I love thee to the depth and breadth and height
My soul can reach, when feeling out of sight
For the ends of Being and ideal Grace.
I love thee to the level of everyday’s
Most quiet need, by sun and candle-light.
I love thee freely, as men strive for Right;
I love thee purely, as they turn from Praise.
I love thee with a passion put to use
In my old griefs, and with my childhood’s faith.
I love thee with a love I seemed to lose
With my lost saints, — I love thee with the breath,
Smiles, tears, of all my life! — and, if God choose,
I shall but love thee better after death.
by Elizabeth Barrett Browning (1806-1861)
Everyone is welcome, there’s a bit of a sing-song going on in the back. Just make yourself at home and introduce yourself if you are new to the place. You’ll find this is a very friendly place (too friendly, in the case of our Yvonne) & full of fascinating people…
As always there’s good game of billiards going on downstairs. Please remember NO JUMP SHOT ALLOWED UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES I don’t know how long we can keep the pool table, one more broken cue and one more chipped 8 ball and it might be the end…..
It has been brought to management’s attention that there has been a bit of gambling going on.
That’s OK with me, but 50% of your winnings must be pledged to charity.
TONIGHT’S CHARITY IS THE SAVE THE CHILDREN FUND
When Called I Will Serve, but if I should fail to hear you, or am busy drinking with someone else, Serve Yourself:
If you can’t find what you’re looking for, just ask Yvonne.
If you find Yvonne, would you tell her I’m looking for her?
