A friend tells me by email that the Paranormal Jockey's Pub is temporarily(?) closed. He too is out of the country and has no more information available. As this is an Important Matter, I thought I'd conduct my own investigation, by texting a couple of numbers that happened to be lodged in my mobile. My first respondent, from China, seemed a little vague: hello darling i do not bar when time open i miss u x x. Nevertheless, it appears to confirm bar closure. My second, from Kyrgyzstan, was a little more informative: hi honey yes closed 1 week ago. too much problems with the girl and the drunk man bollox. I should point out that Carina frequently appends bollox as an expletive, so a comma after drunk man may be safely assumed.
So, it would appear that the Para is under some form of closure order, but of what duration, I still don't know. If anyone on the spot can fill in the details, please post a comment.
Postscript: The closure was short-lived. Normal service was restored after a week. I do wonder, however, if a certain silver haired Scottish gentleman who hasn't missed a day's Paranormal attendance in living memory will have been irrevocably traumatised by these tragic events.
