Drop in For a Bounce
February 20, 2013 7:33 AM   Subscribe

A pub can be the lifeblood of a neighborhood, a place of safety and comfort. But sometimes, you find yourself in a publess zone; sometimes you need one right here, right now. Sometimes you need an inflatable pub.

If you're feeling penitent afterwards you can drop by the inflatable church (previously).

It's not the pub I need, it's the beer! I don't care where it's served.

This was cool right up until I looked at the cost per square foot.

My tent is about the size of their smallest pub, cost about a tenth the price and came with a wood burning stove!

There's no need to endure the lonely, existential emptiness of a large, grassy field. Instead, fill it with a gigantic piece of PLASTIC!

What's a "publess zone"?

Or you could just make the pub mobile and with reduced carbon footprint.

does the inflatable pub hold helium well
if so how long would it hold say a person in a lawnchair with a twelve pack
this is an important urgent question because i am out of beer and would like to get more

As if that's ever gonna happen, but taking this as a harmless thought experiment, I believe I would pause before entering a bouncy-house pub. I had to get my reluctant kid out from a bouncy-house castle in the summer and it was not easy to walk across the floor completely sober and with both hands free. Given my level of thirst however anything's possible.

Man, I can't even tell you how much of a problem this is for me. There you are, about to work your magic and bam, bald as a cue ball again! I'll tell you what, our infantiziling society has just gone too far and...oh, oh, oh publess zone.

Right.

They used to be quite cheap. But with inflation...

You can buy actual houses for less money than that.

My favourite part is the way that the fire exit is the faux fire. I guess in the event of a fire everywhere pretty swiftly becomes the exit.

Sorry to burst your bounce house, but I've been in one of these things and there's no floor, just the firm ground. Only the walls+roof are inflated.

Good that there's no floor. I bet it still smells like morning at the biergarten.

So I'm planning a wedding and this post has lit a fire that may never be extinguished, but I'm posting to say that my research led me to this, which I find absolutely hilarious. I mean, it sucks for the owner and all but I offer a special kind of kudos to whomever pulled it off.
