Saturday in Dublin

I'm glad I got a little time in at the National Library manuscripts collection today (short hours on Saturday), because they will be closed for bank holiday on Monday. Every vacation I've taken to U.K. or Ireland has had a bank holiday. Now I'll have to figure out what to do both Sunday and Monday, when libraries and most attractions are closed.

Had a nice meeting with some Dublin nanowrimo members, including the MLs (local organizers) and a new writer. We met up at the Library Bar, a lovely lounge in the Grand Hotel that has good decor, bookshelves, chandeliers and beat-up wooden floors, plus a good salad and a pint. Who could ask for more?

Should Archdale add a bar to its library?

Definitely! (at least a place where coffee is allowed)
