On St. Patricks Day, we were observing the nice weather outside The Pub, and a horse/buggy came into our view. I thought the Bacardi and Cokes were made a little strong, but remembered I hadnt had any yet. The rig was nice with a Clydesdale in the lead. Wow! Where did that come from? Will this be a regular thing downtown? Someone please e-mail me, and let me know how we can promote this.
Jenny, the brains behind Swilligans The Pub, told me I need to get off the political kick for at least a week. So I reluctantly agreed. Here are some of my nonpolitical thoughts for my Jenny article. My first thought is Jenny and her crew do such a good job. I am very proud of them all.
Too bad Sky Drysdale left radio. He was a comfortable voice on an ever-changing medium. The reason I advertised on that station was because of him. He will be missed, but good luck to him in his new endeavor. I used to use KW Powell in a previous life. Sparky has a good company, and I wish Sky and Sparky good luck.
You gotta love Bernie and the crew at Grecos. His food is very good, and I especially love the picture of a young Bernie and Babe Ruth on the wall behind the bar. I had to take chili off my menu because my buddy, Jimmy Columbi, explained to me what chili was all about. I try to get to CJs once a week for Bubbas food and wisdom. You know the old-fashioned, dont-screw-with-me type of wisdom that only Jimmy can dish out.
I went to the IceHogs game Friday and Raptors Saturday. Both were a blast, and I always wondered why there arent more people. Even if you havent been a fan of either, its fun and cheap entertainment. The kids seem to love both games.
Dont forget Swilligans The Pub is open for you every day at 11 a.m. and serving food every day from 11 till 9 p.m. except until 5 on Sundays. Soon the MLB season will start, and Swilligans will feature DirecTV Extra Innings featuring every Major League baseball team.
