Caledonia Scottish Pub

WHOA!  Do you all remember when I used to wax on about a fantastic, cozy little authentic Scots pub in uptown NYC called Jock Tamson's Bairns?  The first time I ever went in, the bartender, Aiden, actually used the word "sassenach" in every day conversation...and I almost fell off my barstool.

Meanwhile...they closed last year...and Tracey and I (and my Scots-American hubby) were devastated.

That is, until just now when I discovered they have reopened as Caledonia Scottish Pub!!!!

I cannot TELL YOU how excited I am!  They have a MENU on their website that lists their 150 different kinds of whisky!!!  AND they have whisky-tasting nights all the time!  And if THAT weren't enough (and believe me; it is)...they also serve meat pies and sausage rolls!  Mmmm...sausage rolls.  (Said like Homer Simpson.)  If you have never had one; you've never lived.

This is breathing new life into my plans to hold a MOP Gathering in NYC y'all...

PS - Never had a sausage roll or meat pie and want some shipped overnight to you?  I've got just the place!!!

Tracey Visits The Poisoned Pen

Tracey is in Arizona on business this week...and made sure to stop by The Poisoned Pen last night.  You know..."Herself", Diana Gabaldon's local book shop that she visits a few times a month?  Yup!  That's the one.  We are on the East coast and have always wanted to go there...so Tracey insisted on paying homage (pronounced "oh-mahj" for this post because I'm a smartass like that.)  ;)

Um, girls (I just met since I started my new job two weeks ago)?  Would
you mind taking my picture with this fantastic book from Diana Gabaldon?
She lives close by with her husband, my best friend Dougggg, ya know.
