Lillie’s Bordello | Dublin, Ireland

I had an Irish-born boyfriend once, who came to Canada to open an Irish pub. I was the bartender and, he was the general manager, we fell in love. He had a friend in Dublin and I loved to travel, so I packed my bags and headed for the little green island. He stayed back in Canada slinging Guinness.

She had friends in every bar, nook and cranny along the cobblestoned streets of Dublin. She had a friend who was a bouncer at Dublin’s most prestigious nightclub Lillie’s Bordello.

Who? Who?

I’d like to introduce you to another wicked woman blogger, she is why I began to blog.  I’ve known her for many years and we have drunk down many a Guinness together even leaving the Guinness draft tap running one busy night, slinging pints of Ireland’s finest at waiting patrons.  We’ve also got our complete-stellar funk-out, dancing to the Smoothies, where only the Lions dare roam.  Those were the times, sometimes hard, sometimes good.  Life took it’s turn down a windy road and there were a few years of distance.  Fastforward to the phenom of Facebook and we reunite through the wonderous virtual pages of Facebook.  Her life blossoming like no other, our past behind us and the future ahead we salute each other to good health and happiness.

Around Christmastime 2010 a surprise arrived in the mail.  Now I’m not going to tell you everything that was in this beautiful gift, but know it was the most sentimental surprise someone could find.
