Does anyone have any updates on when, or if, it is going to be open for business? Has construction stopped? What about the bakery that was supposed to be coming to downtown as well?

You ignorant hillbilly!
You are confusing the Irish with the Scottish, who do not wear dresses, they wear Kilts,the traditional dress of men and boys in the Scottish Highlands.

And they have been posting jobs for Head chef, and soux chefs.

They have hired a head chef and he is coming from Ireland and they plan to open in December. Hope the local and immigrant hillbillies appreciate what they are setting out to do enough to support this enterprise.

I highly doubt it.
Not many can afford to shop next door, at the Vault, with their outrageous prices.
So the food, being cooked by a Chef, brought in from Ireland, will have similar high prices, as the job they are offering for the Head Chef,or as they like to name it (CONSULTANT AND TRAINER - IRISH COOKING ) is $16.35 Hour (minimum)
So who knows what a meal will cost!

Meals in most British/Irish pubs run $10 to $18, about what you would expect to pay on restaurant row in Cookietowne. Why don't you wait and see what they have to offer before you put them down, and then if you can't afford it, don't go there.......
Personally, I'm looking forward to something new here, and some of the best meals and times I have had have been in pubs, so although I am on a modest fixed income I plan to budget them into it.

Ireland is having a hard time financially and has not nearly recovered from the recession the Repubicans put the world into so maybe people are still coming here looking for the "good life".
I,too, hope you can afford to eat there and will give them a try

Dear Lulu,
This is not 1864, Ireland does not have a potatoe ( Blight) famine any more, causing thousands to die of starvation, they have no need to immigrate here, to the USA to build railways, work in the mines or search for the streets paved with gold, you silly thing lol.
But..IF the Bull and Thistle are bringing in a Chef, from Ireland,are they providing accomodation? For him, and perhaps some family members? His work Visa? I mean after all, this isn't California, Gainesboro is just small town USA, with a population of less than a thousand.. Cornbread and Chicken.
And the hourly pay they are offering, for such an experienced, chef, leader, trainer, is barley minimum wage, when the exchange rate is mentioned.

It just does not make sense to me. Does it to you?

From what I hear, the cost of a meal there will be similar to O'Charley's. Also, nicknackpaddywack (give a dog a bone), I'm sure the chef from Ireland will be compensated appropriately. Not sure why you would even be concerned with that anyway.

My only interest in this is that someone is trying to make a difference in the Town of Gainesboro. Does that make any sense to you?

Dear NickNack: It all makes perfect sense to me, and especially because I am aware, though you are apparently not since the last economic hardship that has come to your attention was the potato famine, that some sons and daughters of Erin are Emigrating to the USofA again because of economic hardship in the Emerald Isle. Also, the minimum wage here is not barley, and a considerable amount less than $16.35/hr and still a lot more than normal average pay back in Ireland. What makes even more sense is that your carping shows that your interest is not in the advantages that Gainesboro will enjoy from the presence of these new businesses but in knocking them to try to bring them down to your pathetic level. As I said earlier, I hope you can afford to eat at the new restaurant and, if you can't, hope you are able to grow a few potatoes so you won't starve.

I am very well aware of the min wage here, it is, I believe to be $7.25/hr.

The wage offered for such an experienced Chef is $16.35/hr.

That calculates to a mere 10.305/hr, in Ireland.

Ireland 2012: Minimum Rates of Pay in Ireland
Experienced adult worker 8.65 per hour

I am looking forward to the opening of the new PUB, despite what you say.

Putting a Pub in "down-town" Gainesboro is like putting a turd in the punch bowl. What kind of crack was they smoking when they came up with this idea.
