Do I get the prize for closing the longest gap inbetween replies on a thread?

Joe's Beer House, Windhoek. http://www.joesbeerhouse.com/

I have never been there (only passed througth WINDHOEK) but when Worldrider was in SA, we struck up a protracted web-conversation and I helped him with maps and routes etc. While finding  a service centre for his Dakar, I came across this place and included it in my info for him.

As I am looking at this picture, wondering how the heck you can ever hunt it down in GE - it sort of swam into focus and memory. Now I will just HAVE to go grab 453ml or 906ml at the place..
(pint or two... gotta go metric)

Old, grey, crafty...

You can do anything if you have enthusiasm. Enthusiasm is the yeast that makes your hopes rise to the stars. Enthusiasm is the sparkle in your eyes, the swing in your gait, the grip of your hand, the irresistible surge of will and energy to execute your ideas. Enthusiasts are fighters. They have fortitude. They have staying qualities. Enthusiasm is at the bottom of all progress. With it, there is accomplishment. Without it, there are only alibis.
Henry Ford

There are skis on the wall. Is it near the Drakensberg?
and since there are also Voortrekker paraphernalia, is it near Estcourt/Weenen/Bergville?

Ok, the one is "The Tug" in Swakop.
Number 2 is the "Bull and bush" in Gabs.

Funny story - we walk into The Tug around 7pm on 25 Dec (yes wishful thinking) and ask whether they have a table for us. The hostess runs her finger along the reservation book and says:
"We can help you around... mmmm... lemme see... Ah, yes - on the 4th of January"

Got to be the Brass Bell in Kalk Bay.

Haven't been there for at least 10 years, but still one of my favorites.
How can I be lost if I've got nowhere to go?
