If you can always be cheerful, ignoring aches and pains,
If you can resist complaining and boring people with your troubles,
If you can eat plain food every day and be grateful for it,
If you can understand when your loved ones are too busy to give you any time,
If you can take criticism and blame without resentment,
If you can conquer tension without medical help,
If you can relax without liquor,
If you can sleep without the aid of drugs,
then you are probably the family dog!

There is a new business planning to open in a few months (end January at the earliest) on Bristol's State Street where the Anchor Tavern is currently located. It's called the British Beer Company and will serve beer only - over 25 kinds. It is a privately held Formula Business located mostly on Cape Cod with about 10 locations in that area. The owner, Gary Simon, said he has opened a new store every 12 - 18 months - the first one opening 14 years ago in Plymouth MA. The Bristol store will be the first in the state of RI and be very similar in size and design to the one in Plymouth.
Mr. Simon will need to go before the HDC (Thursday Dec 1) and Zoning (Monday Dec 5). At last Wednesday's Town Council (TC) meeting he received conditional approval to open in Bristol. The TC was most concerned about the entertainment license he would inherit (from Mike Ferriera) and wanted to know what the entertainment would be. Simon said that it would be sympatico with a "pub atmosphere" - low key with no rock n roll and that the music would be to 'enhance' the public experience with no amplified music - at most a guitar and singer.
Town Councilor Halsey Herreshoff noted there is something unique about the culture and spirit of an English Pub and said he was grateful this British Beer Company wanted to come to Bristol.
The entertainment license was approved on a 3 month trail basis with a final review in July. Town Solicitor Ursillo wished him well and noted he be sure to comply with the wastewater treatment ordinance.
