Where everybody knows your name


Yesterday after an expected two-day trial settled, we made a quick, unplanned trip to Boston to a little neighborhood pub where Charlie's son and some friends were playing music.

It was great fun and seemed a long way from our life in the woods. I've never spent much time in bars--OK the truth is, I've never spent any time in any bar but I did like watching Cheers back in the day.

This seemed just like a Cheers type of place. We got there before 7 and it was pretty quiet but as the night wore on, it got more and more crowded and everyone seemed to know each other and to be having a good time.

It was so much fun to see the talented young folks play music and they even brought the vintage rocker out for a few songs.

I loved watching Cheers--and always thought it would be great to have such a local pub--where everybody really does know your name. (humming the song in my head right now!)

Sounds like a great place to spend an evening. I'm glad they let the old man perform. Pappy

What a wonderful way to spend an evening. Aren't those unexpected get-a-ways fun?

How fun to be in a venue where it's small enough to appreciate the music.

We have the best of both worlds. We're in the woods most of the time, with the opportunity to drive a few ours to the city. Every once in a while I get away, but it's always a relief to return. I got to say, I love the neighborhood.

ours=hours, of course...The teacher in me gets irritated at typos.
