Going to the Hi-B

July 11, 2008 by Evin

This evening, we met up with visiting American friends for dinner at a little cafeteria-style restaurant in Cork City Centre. It has a Scottish name, I think. Afterward, we ventured out for a pint at the Hi-B Bar as it was their last evening in town. I was fearful that as Americans or newbies we would be barred from the bar before even getting a pint (or barred at all for that matter), but the heavens were smiling upon us and we were served by Brian himself! While there, however, two young ladies were barred while we were present. We noticed no peculiar behavior, though in my opinion they seemed to be a bit flirty with the younger man tending bar. I later heard that it may have been because they were without an accompanying male. My Bulmer’s was delicious and a good time was had by our foursome. When I returned home, I read a bit in Jaywalking with the Irish, which mentioned the Hi-B quite a bit. The book, by David Monagan, is available from Amazon.com and Amazon.co.uk as well as in the travel essay section of bookstores.
