I had to follow up the previous post because just a day later I saw an article about Bohemia Boards and Brews, a board game cafe’. It is open now in Vrsovice with a Grand Opening slated for mid September. The early reviews are all raves including the Zemsky pivovar and popcorn machine. Check it out and leave a comment here, please.

Some readers may know that Karin and I lived in West Cork, Ireland for several years before moving to Paros, Greece. While in Prague we hoped to renew the connection by going to one of the promoted “Irish pubs”. Sadly we were consistently disappointed by either closed for remodeling signs or the only Irishness was bottled Guinness.
Recently we were pleasantly surprised by a news article referring to a Prague school offering Irish dancing lessons. Come to find out there are two such schools in Prague and many others throughout all of Europe.
The newest school, Luas Dancing School, is directed by Tereza Louzecka Bach. Her first interest was American style clogging so she teaches that as well.
Participants are welcome for exercise and fun or they can train for competitions in Poland, Austria, Germany, Holland and eventually on to England and Ireland as well.
See their web site for a cool video as well as photos and details of classes
Prague also hosts a branch of the Delaney Academy of Irish Dance based in London. I guess next time we will have to look deeper for a bit of shamrock.
