I'm at a coworker's going away party at the King's Head right now, and I'm just as sad about the state of the King's Head as I am about losing one of our best people.
It's been gutted. All the old-English decorations that lined the walls - the swords, the armor, the caber - has all been removed (and returned to the original owner). they're in the process of turning it into your average industrial night club.
I'm torn. On one hand, I'm sad that such an awesome pub is going away. But the new owners are really nice people, they went out of their way to get the old decorations back to the original owner, and I get it that a night club really would make more business sense than the old King's Head.
It's the end of an era. I still remember coming down here with Will and Tim every week for Irish dancing. Until the hot chick from Austin moved back home and it all fell apart.
