I much prefer the Victorian opulence of the Palm Court, its like going back in time, I just imagine characters from The Age of Innocence to be sitting there taking high tea. I am glad they haven't modernised it. I do appreciate the sophistication of the Carlisle, but its not really me, because I would feel too scruffy and not chic enough. The Palm Court would just look at me like an indulgent aristocratic uncle and allow me to admire it with my mouth open in awe.

{{ As my ole Paw used to say to me, 'son if it wasn't for the DNA test proving it Id not believe...' sorry wrong one  Mad  I meant, "Son, if doesn't have straw on the floor its not a pub and you can be sure of one thing, the drink will cost you half a years mortage be colourful and sticky, and come in a tiny glass that maily consists of minatuare umbrellas, ice and inexplicabley bits of fruit impaled on sticks. What you will be lucky to find is the actual drink you just ransomed yourself for. Always look for straw lad, the mugs might not be clean and it might taste like your bathwater you share with the pigs, but they will be big, full and cheap.' Words to live by. Nod }}

pale straw and bustles don't mix. All the creatures living in the straw try to climb into the bustle for a kip, and then wake up and start biting.

We don't have anyplace that still uses straw, but some use sawdust. Most of these places are faking it, but a couple go back to the 19th century. I haven't been back to McSorley's for a while; goes back to the Civil War.
