The Metro Burger Dublin sign [formerly of hawkins Street by The Screen on the Green] has been given a new lease of life.

Join us in Lucky’s beer garden [Meath Street, Dublin] to raise a drink to this rare and wonderful thing: a Dublin sign which escaped the skip and has lived to tell the tale!

From ‘7-ish’.

    From the article:

    “We don’t know who made the sign or who owned the restaurant.”
    “My lasting memory of Metro Burger is that the food was truly hideous.”

    But they’re having a party for the sign.
    This is irritating me more than it should on a lovely sunny evening.

    Raised on songs and stories, heroes of renown
    The passing tales and glories that once was Dublin town
    The hallowed halls and houses, the haunting children’s rhymes
    That once was Dublin City in the rare old times

    Oh my God that is so unreal. I used to work there. The 99p breakfast and the free tea and coffee refill. It was a great place and boy did we see some characters. We used to rig the jukebox for free credits and the old style cigarette machine with the pullout drawers used to give out (free) packs of cigarettes

      T-Cut is totally contemporary Papi.
      It’s what one uses to make one’s car look new again, especially if it’s ageing and red (fades a lot).
      Takes a layer or two of paint off to expose the shiny fresh coat underneath. V satisfying.

        Cool. Maybe it reminded me of the Brasso tin that use to be on the shelf in the shed for aeons.
