May 29: Dino-mite, Reading Update & the Next Single Malt Tasting

Tonight: Dino & the Dinosaurs
Time: 9:00 pm

It’s a rare extra Thursday in the month, so we’ve got a second helping of the blues for you. Tonight, Dino & Dinosaurs will lay down the tunes starting at 9:00 pm. Get out and warm up for the weekend, friends!


Our boy Bill Watkins has his third book coming out: The Once and Future Celt. Minneapolis based Scarletta Press is releasing it, and we at Merlins are pleased as punch. (You can acquire Bill’s first two books–A Celtic Childhood and Scotland Is Not for the Squeamish–here at the pub.) To celebrate the release of …Future Celt, we’re holding two readings with Billy, all of it supported by music breaks (and followed by live traditional Celtic music and our weekly Kilt Night):

Friday, May 30, 5 – 7:30 pm
Music: Dunquin & the Usual Suspects

Friday, June 6, 5 – 7:30 pm
Music: To be determined

Join us for selections from Bill’s work, lots of banter and the smell of new books! Get your copy signed and raise a pint to the man. And, as note, following Bill’s readings will be the normal Friday fun: kilts and traditional Celtic music!


We mark the beginning of every month with a Single Malt Tasting with our resident expert from the Isles: the Whisky Wench! Join Fiona and loads of others on Thursday, June 5, as we offer 4 or 5 grand pours from our extensive stock.

Keep an eye on this site for more information. We’ll have a theme to announce, I think, and, of course, I must give you the time information! Keep watching, and we look forward to seeing you here.
