Day 837: Brit’s Pub, Minneapolis

Laetitia received word that the staff member that she temporarily replaced at the Antarctic research station had nearly recovered from her debilitating condition and would be returning in a few weeks.  Thus, Laetitia began to think about what she would do when she returned to Hibernia.  She decided that instead of leading another Mind’s Eye Limerick Tour when next she had some time off, she would visit her cousin, Elsa, in Minneapolis, and try to figure out what next to do with her life.

They met for lunch at Brit’s Pub in Minneapolis.  It was founded in 1990 by self-described, 83-year-old Cockney geezer, Freddie Manton.  Its “Bill of Fayre” features a nice selection of brews and pub food and it has witty signs like the one that reads, “Beer!  It’s not just for breakfast anymore.”  They had shepherds’ pie and Guinness, chatted about old times and discussed Laetitia’s options for the future.  Though she didn’t need to, Laetitia wrote a limerick about Brit’s.

Straight from England, the land of Great Tits
Comes a pub that’s known simply as “Brit’s”
Have a brew and a plate
Their Bill of Fayre’s great
And their ciders and ales are big hits.
