July 7: Open Mic

Tonight: The Open Mic with Harrison Matthews
Time: 8:00 pm

Well! What a Wimbledon final on the men’s side! Rafael Nadal won a brilliant five-setter against the Federer Express: 6-4, 6-4, 6-7, 6-7, 9-7. Thrilling stuff with Federer, winner of the previous five Wimbledons, fighting off three match points before finally succumbing to Nadal’s speed and creativity.

Brilliant match. Truly one for the ages, as they say.

And let’s not forget Venus Williams who was an absolute delight in winning her fifth career Wimbledon title on Saturday. She now ranks up there with grand champions like Billie Jean King, Martina Navratilova and Steffi Graf. Sister Serena may play with more ferocity and may win more majors overall, but Venus’ grace is exactly what Wimbledon’s grass courts cotton too. It’s also what lends the event to prestige.

Enough of my tennis talk!


Right! What a lovely Fourth of July weekend that was, hey?

We’ll kick start the new week’s events with the Merlins Rest Open Mic featuring our host Harrison Matthews. He’s a great man, that Harrison, and we have so many fine singers and poets and such in the pub. The Open Mic is a fantastic way to share some creativity and get the week moving in the right direction.

Sing it, say it, share it, friends. Lend your talent or an ear. Hey: it’s your mic! We appreciate you.

That fun begins about 8:00 pm.
