Time For A Pint

I found this sign and clock on the side of P.J. O'Brien Irish pub near yesterday's post in the St Lawrence Market neighbourhood. I hadn't seen it before so it was a pleasant surprise indeed. Those people to the left were a couple with a English Bulldog and a photographer with cases of very fancy camera equipment and they were setting up for a walk-by shot past the clock. The clock was not showing the correct time!

I especially like that clock.

Bill Nicholls said...

I don't mind if I do but tend to prefer Murphys stout

Karen said...

Cool. I was wondering if the clock had the right time.

i LOVE it, even if i don't drink guinness or anything similar.

Revrunner said...

I thought the clock was saying it was just about a quarter of an hour before Guinness Time.

Luis Gomez said...

Yep! It is about that time. ;)

I don't know from Guinness - never have had occasion to try it, but love the "mural," and that clock if fantastic!

Love this Guinness sign. Looks like something from the 1950s when the "Guinness is Good For You" campaign was in full swing.

I don't drink Guinness or any kind of beer, but this is an eye-catching ad for sure. I really like the sign and its size, easy to read!

Sure it was. It's showing it's always time for a pint!

This sign should be easy to spot from a distance.

You can't really miss that can you?

Jack said...

Very very cool, RedPat!

William Kendall said...

Now that is a clock!

I've heard the Guinness you get here isn't like the Irish one, and in fact in Ireland, the brew tastes better as you get closer and closer to the brewery.

Randy said...

You can't miss that sign or that clock for that matter. Nice find.

Jen said...

Very cool clock. I wonder if it had the wrong time on purpose, for the photographer.

Weekend-Windup said...

Very beautiful clock and a good advertisement! It makes all the people to look at it!

Sallie (FullTime-Life) said...

Great sign. But I'd rather have a glass of wine thank you!

EG CameraGirl said...

Too bad the clock isn't accurate. Otherwise, I rather like this one! Good find.

Tanya Breese said...
