    Default What shall we call the Pub?

    As I said in the other thread, all good pubs need an appropriate name. In the UK the traditional form is as below


    The Dog and Duck
    The Prince of Wales
    The Fox and Hound
    etc

    My suggestion to kick it off would be:-

    The Spear and Feathers

    My suggestions;
    18th & K (or some other iconic DC intersection)
    Ye Olde Feather and Spear (or Burgundy and Gold)
    The Arrow's Point (or point of the spear, the flying arrow etc.)
    and my personal favorite...
    The Hogs Head Inn--so sue me, I like bad puns

    The old hang out for the Redskins back in the 50's was the Bloody Bucket in Anacostia perhaps it's a bit before most of you can remember.

    I was going to say "The Redskins Lounge" but "Spear and Feathers" sounds like the best choice.

    Hmm. This group is way too easy. I don't say that as a reflection on the suggestion--which I also like--but a reflection of any suggestion going unchallenged in such an august assemblage of Redskins fans. We need to have a meeting or something.

    Chewy would never show up if we called it that.

    After all, Chewy is the President of the Brunell Haters Club.

    I'm likin this a lot.

    It's a bloody proper name for a pub. No matter the name though, it's a pub, and you'll find my bike parked out front.
