Wild West Week at CERN

"The Buffalo Head is back in R1, that is all." -- John PenwellFrom time to time, the company that runs the CERN restaurants sets up a theme week. This week they are hosting one of their most elaborate: the Wild West. As you can see at left, they have wheeled a buffalo head into the restaurant. A few more decorations are below.

For Europeans, the Wild West seems to be one of the commonly referenced themes from American culture. Perhaps they think that it reflects our national character even in the present day, or perhaps it’s just a very striking setting. I can’t quite imagine the Fermilab cafeteria putting up the equivalent — French Revolution Week, perhaps, complete with guillotine — but it’s all in good fun.
