I think David should keep his negitive comments about St. John's to himself or better yet move. I think its great that the change in ownership of this bar has gotten the media attention it has, it shows that we still are a province that cares about our people and what they are investing in our culture. I think its great these guys want to keep the integrity of Erins and we should be congratualting people who put back into our province, not talking about what the outside of building looks like or why it is a story in the news .

Dale, you beat me to it. While I wish the gentlemen good luck on their endeavour they certainly need to sink a dollar or two into the exterior. One of the worst looking places downtown - and that's saying something. For that reason alone I don't think I have ever been inside it.

So sorry to see Ralph go from the business. I saw him at one of his first venues with dennis Ryan, John Cameron and Johnny Lynn in the late 60's and have been a big fan ever since. Having said that, though, the pub is still in great hands. A big fan of Chris and of Great Big Sea as well.

Wow....someone sold a pub to someone else. You just can't up to date, with St. John's flying so high and fast.

@DAVID If you want to be in a more exciting, faster paced city, move to Toronto or Vancouver. One of the most beautiful aspects of St. John's and Newfoundland in general is the small communal feeling its citizens share. Not to mention, Bob Hallett and Chris Andrews are two of the most successful musicians this province has ever produced. I am happy for them both, and look forward to seeing what they bring to Erin's!

Thin-skinned, irrational and defensive...if you were anywhere lese, you'd be in danger. Norm!

What about the exterior of the building? Hope the new owners have plans to clean it up and renovate the outside too. It's currently one of the ugliest and run-down looking buildings on Water Street with that ridiculous circular window on the second floor and the horrible corrugated metal siding. This is particularly bad considering it's in such a historic and heritage area.
