While we were in Destin, Florida a couple of weeks back, we stopped off at McGuire’s Irish Pub on Highway 98. I had been there in the past, but previously I did not notice the creepy double-decker bus full of mannequins with an animatronic driver parked out front. So of course I had to shoot some photos and a video of the surreal scene.
If you find yourself in Destin, you should definitely check it out McGuire’s. Don’t let the bus scare you away, the traditional Irish food and beer (they have a brewery on site) is excellent.
The also have another location, the original McGuire’s, in Pensacola.
Oh and when you go to the restroom, make sure to read the signs very carefully. I saw several people tricked into going into the restroom of the opposite gender.
UPDATE: beachdeal sent us a video of the bus during the holidays with the mannequins dressed in Santa outfits.
