Tin Cup's Tavern


I'm not sure if this tavern took its name from the movie, Tin Cup, which starred Kevin Costner and Rene Russo, but it doesn't seem to have anything to do with golf. We have not patronized it, but I've heard it is a pleasant place with decent food and drink and good music. It is located downtown, opposite the square on Silver Springs Boulevard.

Wow, I guess it would be so exciting to play gold inside there! Perhaps a bit dangerous too, but no risk no fun...
God bless you!

I love old taverns and pubs. Properly maintained and run, I think they are about the best place for gathering there is. Be it two or twelves people a good tavern is a great place to be. I have spent lots of time in different taverns over time. By myself and with others..... sipping a good whiskey or a cup of coffee. There is something about them that just puts a person at ease.

That's the feeling I got when I saw this picture. I wanted to visit this place because I knew that feeling was inside.... sitting on a bar stool or throwing a game of darts with friends.

Well, bourbon is best served from a tin cup deep within the BWCA. Perhaps that is the reference. Or a it's the guy's nickname while riding the rails.

You've had some great photos lately. I want to learn the photoshop technique that turns photos into paintings. Stunning, stunning work!

At least there's no panhandlers hanging around the door way with their tin cut out for donations. HA!! Nice shot of probably a nice place. MB

It looks like one of those places that is worth a visit. Interesting name.

I love the way you framed it, a quite perfect composition.

Very nice Jacob! I like the color. It looks like it could be a saloon in a old western town. I'm finally back home after being out of town for a wedding and can go visiting my favorite blogs again. Looks like I missed some great posts while I was gone!

I've just spent a goodly time catching up on your last month's posts, and have nothing to say... well I love them all of course, they've sort of left me wordless!

Again!

A little predictable but TIP CUP was a nice movie. :-) ... I feel again your composition of this photo is outstanding... specially creative as you've inculded the tree completely!
