you come into the BrazenHead dining room and you happen to notice a
rather broad and seemingly mismatched collection of cloths on an array
of tables ranging from two-tops, to lopped-offs, to banquet tables
end-to-end, and you don’t happen to like this, please
don’t say anything to the owner, Will Fanning. You see, most
of the tablecloths belonged to Grandmother Babsheen, and they lay in a
trunk for at least 30 years before anyone got them out, even to look
at. So each one of these tablecloths probably has a story, and Will may
have a great sentimental attachment to any number of them. He likes his
tablecloths. Perhaps you will too, if you consider them as individuals.
But don’t think that we
don’t know how to dress. On most weekends and special
occasions, we haul out the matching ironed tablecloths and fold the
napkins just so. It looks great, if we say so ourselves.
Now, about the food ...
The Fanning Family’s tastes
prevail. No fancy gourmet food here, but ample servings of hearty Irish
and American favorites, served plain and simple.
