April 15: Tax Day, Bedlam’s Last Blast and Garrigan’s Quarrel

Tonight: The LAST Bedlam Tuesday!
Time: 9:00 pm

Normally I’d shout that you need lock up the china and silver because Bedlam is on the way; but today it’s only because the tax man cometh. Write your checks–ah! the pain! the pain!–and then get back to normal life. Take in a pint or three tonight to celebrate the end to this annual financial pressure cooker…and celebrate to:

a. Welcome spring
b. Send off Bedlam on a high note

John Sjogren and his motley crew–never to be confused with those roustabouts known as Mötley Crüe–have been a Tuesday-night fixture here at Merlins since the early days of the pub. We love ’em and wish them all the best on their new gig(s).

So come out tonight, friends, and celebrate this last of the regular Bedlam Tuesdays. But we reserve the right to hold another Bedlam event in the future!

Cheers, lads. Thanks for all the good times.


Garrigan’s Quarrel is coming! Wednesday night, April 16, we’re holding the first part of our Battle of the Sexes. It’s an all-female staff night, and in support of that we’ve got Garrigan’s Quarrel in the pub. Pop in and show your support for the women of Merlins Rest, and stay for the music at 9:00 pm.

And on Thursday, April 17, the all-male staff night. So stop up again and see how the boys hold up! Hey: cheer ’em on and have a few laughs, friends.

It’s all part of our anniversary week fun. Thanks, friends, for being here for us. You are appreciated.
