Couple More thoughts

NewHome-"Brew Camp", "The Miscommunications Tent", "Cheap Beer", "The First Stand", "Fortification", "Strong Fortification", "The Happy Hedehog Dance"
Kitt-"The Sunny Spot", "The Sun-Drenched Rug", "The Languid Stretch", "The Spay and Neuter", "Kami's Oxygen Bar"
New Pitt-"The Bitter's End", "DOA's Toe-tag Inn","The Cask of Amontillado"(couldn't help myself)
Pleasantville-"I Drink, Therefore I Am", "The Aromatic Tentacular Secretion"
404-"The Fuel Injector", "The Abandoned Distillery", "The Disgruntled Watcherbot", "The Waystation"
AceHigh-"The Ferryman's Barge","The Ferryman's Song"
Squat Hole-"`$Her Ladyship's Favour", "The Cig and Swig", "Cheap Beer"



Z, The 'Ethanol and Container It Is In' makes me giggle far more than it ought. I am also partial (unsurprisingly) to The Grinning Gremlin.

Freeman, I didn't realize I had ref'd anything...withdrawn!

Eben and Johnson, love almost every one of your suggestions to death.

Two more for Squat-'Booze n'Shite', 'The Brawlin Boozery'

404-The Command Prompt, The Short Circuit, The Crossed Wires, Overclock Station/Lounge (occupying the room atop the city's clocktower, of course), Control, Alt, and Delete's (would be owned by three proprietors, named...yeah, you get the point...), The Glass Interface, The Pintglass Interface, WHILE PUB=OPEN{Drink++}
And, I know they're too popculturey, but
C^3 (for 'The Cake and Companion Cube'), GlaDOS' Descent

Okay, seriously, somebody tranquilize me before I invent more.

Could I add one for a new Pub company; one run by a combination of Kittymorphs and Midgets. It should be called The Suppurating Puss.

Too much great stuff for NP and CC404 already, I can't possibly top that. (not that I can top anything else, mind you!)

So far, I'm really taken by Spinal Tap (New Pittsburgh), The Fag and Fist (Squat Hole) and The Broken Mirror (Pleasantville)

My own suggestions:
The Saucy Saucer (Kittania) - Works for a tea room, too Wink
The Battery Pack (CC404)
The Squeaky Wheel (CC404) - fits the saying better, but Creaky Gear is also a favourite
The Double Natural (Ace High)

What Snicker said.
Although, candidly, I still support Suicide Kings for AH, in part because it's the home of Cake...OR DEATH!
Just an opinion (no insult or condescension intended) but thus far, I personally reject all Kittania suggestions thus far, including my own. We've yet to find one that SINGS. Yet.

So, I'll go off and rack my brain...
And maybe you'll go off and rack yours...
And perhaps we'll all find ourselves...not having a pub in Kittania.
Or!
Maybe we'll come up with something f'g brilliant.

Just saying, is all.
Oh, and if you really like your Kittania suggestion, I'm very sorry. It's not you. It's me. Hopefully we all have healthy egos here, and some crank in the corner will not mortally harsh your mellow.

I am just frustrated that I can't pop out with something that's as good as Suicide Kings.

Kittania..... The Kit Kat Bar.

I'm sorry. I couldn't help myself. And I'm sure it's been taken somewhere.

I think the Jokers should have an elegant place that serves tiny sandwiches with the crusts cut off, and cream teas, and fairy cakes, and so on - therefore, for Ace High, I vote the Aces High Tea.

Surely the Kittymorphs would have some place that smells delicious, and is luxurious, with big soft armchairs and beanbags, and perhaps offers catnip on the side, like a Dutch cafe - how about the Coffee Klatch (lazily pronounced Coffee Cat, of course)?

Having fun imagining what the Midgets would call a pub lead to childish giggling and ideas like Issa Fookin Pub, Innit or Not Bloody Dan's Boozer.

I can't top the Spinal Tap for the Zombies, or things like Refueling Station or Pit Stop, let alone Ethanol and Container It Is In for the Robots. And I am sadly devoid of imagination for NH and PV.

I agree with Buddleia for AH, either that or a gambling club. Names: Oponn's Luck* or Phantasmorgia.

404 has got lots of good names already.

NewPitt? Not sure. Spinal Tap is good.

Squat Hole: a place that sells alchoholic** stuff, like

Pleasantville: I would expect this so sell extremely alcoholic stuff, that's designed to get you to a state where you can't see the other patrons as fast as possible, i.e. scrumple. Name could be depressing.*** The Traveller's Woe.

NewHome could be The Monster's (disembodied) Head - they really can be killed you know.

Of course they can. They pronounce it 'Booze'.

For some odd reason, whenever I think of a pub name for Pleasantville, "The Winning Personality" is a name that keeps popping into my mind. Hm, how very odd....

(I think there are far too many for CC404 for me to add yet another, I can't think of a single thing for Squat Hole that's hasn't been said really{"Just Give Us Yer Fookin' Req Already!" maybe?}, and "Spinal Tap" for NP has my vote, so...)

(AceHigh)-"Imp Bombs and Tea"
(Kittania)-"The Kip 'N Nip" (if someone suggested that already, they have my vote) :}

...Yeah, and I can't think of one for NewHome. Bleh, this is why I don't name buildings...>_>

In the vein of Budd's idea... "High ImprobabiliTea" (Ace High)?

I also wholeheartedly vote for "The Winning Personality" (Pleasantville).

On the contrary. I wish to be your pub.
