Puddles Dogville Pub
Aussie pubs are something special - they are a gathering place incorporating beer, drinks, food and a place for the locals to chat about what ever is happening around their community. Most Aussie pubs also have accommodation which is a favorite for backpackers and those traveling on the cheap. There is usually a billiard table, jute box, piano, darts etc available to entertain the locals too. Along the bar there is always some "nibblies" either peanuts or cheetos :) It took us a while to find a building that kind of looked like an Aussie pub but we did and here it is. Then we thought to ourselves who could we name it after....a pub of coarse is known for its beer and usually the character that runs it - only one doggie came to mind. So here it is - The Puddles Dogville Pub with the madam herself right there in the sign. Talking of madams - Mom will always remember one of the pubs in her hometown - owned by a 'madam' she was a Hungarian gypsy who always dressed in the most vivid bright bohemian colors. She could swear and cuss like you wouldn't believe, throw drunks out by herself, was the most down to earth person. She spoke her mind and didn't much care who she upset with the truth. She spent many many years as the mayor of our town which she loved with a passion. The doors are open and drinks and nibblies are on the house - everyone welcome !
