Happy Friday All!
I told you how after Porter and Kudra’s visit I renamed the library “The Books and Booze Room”, because somehow in a fortuitous miscalculation in size and our lack of desire to have a formal living room, we ended up putting the two together. I mentioned this name change to one of our local friends Poppy last weekend and she said that sounded like a great idea for a real business. I have to admit if there was a bar that was made up of comfy couches and chairs that you could just curl up with a book and sip on your spirit of choice without the bar atmosphere, I might be inclined to check it out.
Just think of it, there would a wide selection of books and you could reserve a chair with an adequate amount of reading light around it. The place would be quiet, but not as invasively quite as a library. Waiters/Waitresses would come by and quietly ask if you needed a refill on your bourbon as you read Elmore Leonard’s Fire in the Hole or get you another glass of Pinot Noir while you read My Life in France by Julia Child. There would specialty drinks created to best suit the book you pick. There of course would be food offered, little nibbles to pad your chosen intoxicant. Maybe there would be a room set up to the side (with sound proofing) that local writers or guest speakers could come and chat with others. Oh, if only…
But until I find some investors 😉 here is our version of The Books and Booze Room, which as you can see currently has two kitties napping off a catnip hangover.
