Trust the occasionally offbeat owner and crew at Max's Taphouse to go with something like this.
Regular Christmas lights don't show up all that well on the exterior of a building, so Max's did a little experimenting and fabricated a whole string of giant "oversized" Christmas lights to adorn the roofline of the bar's buildings.
And where, pray tell, did the balls come from? They're recycled/reused "Key Keg" PET balls, the guts of recyclable plastic-and-cardboard "kegs" used by many of the European brewers such as BrewDog to ship one-way shipments of low-volume, high-cost quantities of beer to the States! (A lot of said beers come through local importer Legends Limited.) I asked bartender Bob Simko where they kept the balls until they built the decorations. "All over the place!" he said.
Knowing Max's, I'm expecting this is only a preview of forthcoming decorations. (For Halloween, the roof featured, among other things, a moving giant spider.)
