Chalks The Walk. Or " How to help our out of town friends find the best NFL action."

At Mother Hubbard's Sports Pub we spare no expense when it comes to helping our out of town visitors find all the NFL action. 

We contracted Lianna all the way from Florence to create this recent masterpiece. The completed project was an interpretation of the Sistine Chapel ceiling with Jay Cutler reaching out to touch an unidetified receiver. 

Unfortunately, a subsequent drizzle altered the sketch so it more resembled a colorful Rorschach inkblot of the teletubbies palying twister.

Just another reason to arrive before kick-off!
