Looks like they are ready for an all night party!
I'm struck by the "public house" sign, something I'd be more used to seeing in the UK. Is the "pub" enjoying a revival in the States? I'd be more expecting a "saloon bar" for the fervent fans.

@Curly: Good morning, Curly - from a gray and rainy San Francisco. Pubs have been popular here for at least 40 years. We have a large UK population - especially the Irish - who had an 'underground railroad' network established here in the construction trades during the troubled political times.

Until this year - this was a premier steak restaurant, 'The Acme Chop House' - which seems to have been a victim of the recession. The place was huge and suffered attendance during the 'off season'. I can only imagine what their debt load must have been - it was a class act. The space has been cut up and this 'Public House' now sits alongside a Mexican restaurant. And so it goes...

That's even better than the previous one. Nice work.

I remember the Chop House. It was a class act.
