Last week, on the annual pub crawl run by my local bar, The Moan and Dove, I went to the Lady Killigrew Café for the first time. Having a cafe so close to a used bookstore is, as I have observed in other settings, quite deadly. I'll have to go back.

Today, I saw the Moan and Dove's ad in the local weekly (it changes nearly every week):
If you spend
more time at the
Lady Killigrew

you can take
less Zoloft

For some reason this caused me to go hit up their web site, which I hadn't done before, and my immediate and sustained reaction is that it is "McSweeny's: The Café"

a) both your links are broken.

b) the moan&dove is advertising for the cafe? i'm confused.

a) Oops, I've fixed the links. Usually the HREF tags remind me to fill something in before I post, but apparantly not at 1am. You should definitely visit the second link, and check out the newsletter, the "Whaleship Abstraction".

b) the moan&dove's advertising often has a "go away, we don't need you" subtext to it.I'm sure it makes more sense in context, or with the whole set of ads...

brilliant - the cohabitating bookstore

slogan: "Books you don't need in a place you can't find",

ad copy: "It is true, we are not particularly convenient. We are, however, simply beautiful. This old chestnut building is packed with great stuff, with couches for reading and studying hidden under every eave. Our windows look over the river and its waterfall."

It's enough to sell me on the 2-hr. drive.
