MusicWhile we once boasted one of the best jukeboxes in town, we now sport the same internet piece of crap that every other bar in America has. So, you can now pretty much hear any song you want. Just keep in mind, that if you play Christina Aguilera or Peaches, you will probably get booed out of the bar while the man in charge is skipping your song. And, skipping other people's music is a rude piece-of-shit thing to do, so act like a human and don't do it.
MoviesBoy, we likey some movies down at Lula's. We like all sorts of movies. If you can't find someone to talk to about movies in our joint, you ain't trying. In fact, if you want to film one down here, just ask. We might be willing to oblige...for a fee. It wouldn't be the first time.
BooksWho says we're not literate!?! We read, we just don't do it at the bar very much. You wanna talk books, we'll talk books, but that's going to depend on who you get. All I can tell you for sure is that you won't find us reading any Mr. Boston's.
HeroesJack Daniels, Johnny Walker, Jim Beam, Jose Cuervo and, of course, Arthur Guinness.
About me:Sunday & Monday---Big John. "So...., your wondering who i am. Well, I'm just another Scot- Irish bloke hailing from Cincinnati, Ohio transplanted at a tender age to good ole' No Cackalacky. I touched down in Wilmington in 1999 and landed a job at Bessie's.After proving my mettle I was invited to join this wonderful experience you know as Lula's. Since then I couldn't want another home. I am the one they call Big JON. Monday nights are mine to serve you the best drinks in the ONLY place to drink them. I am a sports fan so chances are you'll find a game, depending on the season, on the tube early in the evening. I usually don't mind if I hear " Hey, could we watch (your fav. T.V show )" , unless my Duke Blue Devils are playing. You can also find me at the door on Fridays. I have the proud reputation of being a great doorman because of my laid back nature so please don't make me ruin your day by making me ask (or TELL) you to leave the pub for disrespecting any of our decorum. And I.D's. People, PLEASE,PLEASE,PAWLEASEEE! have them on you. And your friends. If I don't know them, 99% of the time they will not get in w/o proper I.D. So, all intros given, come in, sit back, relax,and enjoy your favorite beverage in the greatest pub in Wilmington. CHEERS!"
Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday---Bryan, a.k.a. Bernie, is the old fart of the group. Back in 1992, he had his first drink in Lula's (a pint of Bass), it took until 1999 before he actually went to work and started getting other people drunk. Originally from Texas, he was run out of that state by their infamous Rangers, and kept running until he hit the east coast. Besides the facial hair, you can tell him from the other bartenders by the fact that he's usually forcing the bar to watch shows with words like "animals" and "attack" in the title.
Friday Nights--Shawn Matthews got the nickname "The Boss" while touring with his band on the Jersey shore. While originally a doo-wop group, they later turned to a hard-rocking redneck beat with a Christian message. He has just returned to bartending after several years serving with an elite mercenary force in Rwanda, so try to be patient with him if he has trouble remembering what goes in a gin & tonic.
Saturday Nights--We're finally being graced by the behind-the-bar presence of Bill. The nicest of the bunch, Bill, a little over 4 years ago he decided it was high time to seek fortune and glory, or at least warmer weather in the great state of North Carolina and headed to Wilmington with his rotten brother and a pit-bull named Dylan, which inevitably led him to Lula's for drink and eventually to the very drink you hold in your hands on a Saturday Nights!

My new favorite song.
Who I'd like to meet:People who like drinking, living, loving, peace, a lack of drama, spaghetti-o's, tie-fighters, foosball, megatouch, onamotapeias, jokes about goats, bouncy things, dark nooks, old bricks, license plates and dinner plates, dinosaur bones, zombies, old photos, lions and tigers and bears, jalepenos, stupid lists by smart people, late night snacks and house parties, good music from bad people, things that melt in your mouth, zippo lighters and wooden matches and, very often, the people who use them.
