The next chapter of Captain America: Reborn comes out this Wednesday, so I figured a Cap related post was in order. The Sentinel of Liberty is one of my favorites, so I did not want to do some post about how iconic he is. This blog operates a little off the beaten path folks, I wanted something that you may have never heard of before. I beseeched the Google Gods and they smiled upon me this day. Here is the bounty they bestowed upon me.
That's right, a Captain America restaurant! The crazy thing is that there are three of them and they are all located in Ireland. They have been serving American style food, like cheeseburgers and steaks, since 1971. They even have a menu item listed as the Captains Classic burger. These guys love American food and Captain America. I'm seriously considering booking a flight to Ireland, so I can eat at this place.
They have a lot of Captain America imagery inside the restaurants. The one below is my favorite.
That's pretty awesome!
The restaurants also feature a ton of rock n' roll memorabilia. They have guitars and set lists from Queen and REM. They also have signed photo and a pair of shoes from Deborah Harry of Blondie. Each restaurant has a museum inside which houses these rock treasures, so there is plenty more than what I mentioned. It's as if a comic shop and a Hard Rock Cafe had a love child on a wild Irish evening, I'm into it.
If you want to read more about these restaurants then you can check out their website here.
If you're interested in picking up the next issue of Captain America: Reborn, then I highly recommend going to coastcitycomics.net and holding a copy using comixology. This issue may sell out before you get a chance to stop in this week, and this great service can help you avoid such a catastrophe.
If you guys and gals have any questions or comments, please feel free to send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org. I have yet to receive an email from anyone other than my mom, so please don't be shy! I will talk to you!
Until next time,
