I don’t get out much. Why should I since all is do is complain about what I encounter? I got to thinking that, lazy soul that I am, why don’t I get the complaints to come to me?
So I decided to start a pub. What could be more patriotic in the US of A than a good, old-fashioned European pub?
But a pub needs a pub sign and I need your help. Boy, do I need your help.
I wrote a previous post about clever London Pub Signs. Plagiarism never stopped me in the past but I think that – with your help – I can produce a set as good or better than those. Here’s one seen on a pub sign in Edinburgh, Scotland.
Here are my pitiful efforts:
Yeah, they suck. Can you do better? I certainly think so. Please help an old curmudgeon.
What would you put on the Curmudge’s Pub sign?
“Come on in and sit down, or get the Hell out, I don’t care”
Hangovers Installed and Repaired!
Was a tagline on a bar I started in the 1980’s (The Recovery Room, Gulfport MS)
I like it.

I might modify a bit: “Complaint free with purchase of drink.”
Escape real life for happiness – join us for a beer.
(I stole these two) Today’s Special: Buy any two drinks, pay for both
Free Beer, Topless Bartenders, & False Advertising
All good, especially the first one.
How about “We serve beer with a sneer. Have a day.”
That will do but I would prefer to lure them in and then sneer.
I’d love to offer a clever slogan, but I’ll need a beer first…
Free beer tomorrow.
…and I think you’ve just found the perfect pub sign! Though I did like your Pink Elephants sign, too. 😉
I just finished a 50-minute tour of my son’s college in 90-degree heat, so I have no original thought left. All I know is a cold beer in any of your signed pubs sounds really good right now…
“Your child is going to college; you need a beer!”
Yes. Perfect slogan.
Boy, Curmie, you got me with this one, and your previous post. It has all been said. I was forced to my Algonquin cocktail menu book for some of the past:
From an 1806 American newspaper item:
From something in 1935:
From Tom Brokow in the NYT, proposing an alternative presidential debate:
From James Thurber:
For all of these, I may need a billboard.
“Come lay down on one of our bar stools and start at the beginning..”
The fact that we have reclining bar stools at Curmudge’s Pub is an inspiration.
