pub saloon

Seeking managing partners with food/beverage experience for my new 21+ pub/club/experience, “Wet Saloon”. This seasonal, fully formed concept, with locations in Las Vegas, Los Angeles, Miami, Ibiza, Cancun, and Marrakesh will be an oasis for parched party goers and will finally answer the age-old question, “Is your saloon wet enough?”

Yes, yes it is.

1943: Burgess explains how an English pub differs from American saloons. This educational documentary (which was narrated, written, and co-directed by Burgess) was made to introduce American soldiers to Britain during World War II. 

The only fan page solely dedicated to Burgess Meredith // Lovingly ran by his grandniece in attempt to keep his legacy alive.

A few more digital photos from the epic journey I’m currently taking.
My aim is to travel all the way from Singapore to Manchester, mostly by train and entirely by land. For more up-to-date photos, follow my Instagram!

As I write this, I’m still a day or so behind with these blog posts. 

I’ve just arrived by sleeper train into Hat Yai, Thailand, which has all of the class of border towns around the world. The kind of place where things happen. Farang wait for a train into Malaysia for the visa renewal run. An Irish pub. An American saloon. Brightly coloured shopfronts, flags and banners. A motorcycle misfires. A man has his hair cut on the street outside an automotive parts shop. Wandering through a covered market I’m presented with a dizzying array of weapons, sex toys and pirate DVDs. A young woman rides past me on a motorcycle at speed, her hair flowing freely behind her. I remember how much I love Thailand, aware of a slight twinge of shame in my relief to put Malaysian conservatism behind me. 

I adjust my watch, reconfigure my universal power adapter, ask for a wifi password and change the last of my Ringgit for Baht, wondering idly how many times I will enact this new ritual at border crossings still ahead.
