December 10: Wednesday Pub Quiz – Time Change

Tonight: Watkins Wednesday Pub Quiz
Time: 8:00 pm

PLEASE NOTE that tonight’s Wednesday Pub Quiz will move 30 minutes to 8:00 pm for this week only. We are starting a touch later so that our friends from the Minnesota Scottish Fair & Highland Games can meet a bit longer before we let Bill Watkins bellow out the questions.

(Hmm. Do you think he’ll use a Scottish theme on his questions? There’s a strong possibility, methinks.)

Right! So join us tonight for 25 questions and whatever suits your fancy: keep warm with a Guinness, tuck into some gorgeous lamb stew, etc. It’s Isles pub fare and it’s here. You should be too!

The quiz is free and fun to play. See you tonight!

Birsds & Beers, December 11

Sharon Stiteler, who many of you know as the Birdchick, has announced that the next Birds & Beers gathering will be held at Merlins on Thursday, December 11, at 6:00 pm. Birds & Beers is an informal gathering of birders of all ages. If you’re a hardcore lister or a casual backyard birder or someone who just wants to know what this whole birding thing is about, then you’re invited.

Join ‘em and join us!

Knit Night, December 12

It seems a curious sight, but it’s an absolute blast. Knitters from the Twin Cities gather here at Merlins every month to trade stories, further their skills, and, all in all, take down a few pints. We love ‘em dearly.

For those interested in learning more or perhaps joining them, they’ll be here Friday, December 12 from 4:00 – 7:00 pm. In the meantime, check out It’s a wonderful resource for knitting and a well-done website. Look for the Crafty in Minnesota participants. Another site you might explore is, where you can find a good number of Minnesotans posting their handmade work for sale.

Monday through Thursday

Whether it’s been a hard day or a really lovely one, we invite you up for after work specials here at Merlins Rest. From 4:00 – 6:00 pm, Monday through Thursday, we’re offering $3.75 import pints; and we’ve got some of the best: Guinness, Belhaven, Fuller’s, etc. Other beer and liquor specials will be available too, as will food specials on cheese dips, lamb chops and more.
