Stuck – Need Help

Folks, I’m writing a scene for the second Minivandian’s book, and I need the name of an Irish pub.  For some reason, I can’t think of a good one.

So, I’m asking for your help.  If you leave a suggestion for a PG-rated name to affix to the pub in my story, and I use it, I’ll send you a free, signed copy of the book when it’s published.  Might even make you the owner of said establishment in the story.

Leave your suggestions in a comment, here or on social media.

Thanks!

    • I like the Staggering Giant, especially for a later scene. It goes in the hat with the others.

    • That may not be my tavern, but that is definitely being used. WOZ, how do you feel about being written in as a minor character?
