Weekend Preview: Knitting, Irish Dancing and a Valentine’s Dinner

Tonight: Watkins Wednesday Pub Quiz
Time: 7:30 pm

We’ve got a number of things to update you about! The Knitters are returning, Irish dancing takes place on Velentine’s Day, a special Dinner for Two will be offered that night, and the Birds & Beers group has announced its next gathering–sans Birdchick! And don’t forget that we also have our Wednesday Pub Quiz tonight with Bill Watkins (who happens to have a new website:KeltCom.com). Here we go!

The Knitters Return
4:00 – 7:00 pm

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 February 13 from 4:00 – 7:00 pm. All are welcomed.

Dancing, Then Dinner

Valentine’s Afternoon: Two Tap Trio will play and Paul McCluskey of Lóma Mór will call the dances. It’s traditional Irish ceili dancing as it should be. Join us for this fantastic Saturday afternoon event.  For additional information on the group, see www.lomamor.org.

Valentine’s Night: We are taking reservations from those who would like to place them. Call Jordan at +1 612 859 8440. Regular menu items and a special Dinner For Two will be available. The Dinner For Two option will feature meat and vegetarian options. More details will be available shortly.

Thursday, February 19, 6:30 pm

Sharon Stiteler, who many of you know as the Birdchick, has announced that though she cannot attend, members of the Birds & Beers group will meet her at Merlins Rest on February 19 at 6:30 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!

Pub Quiz, 7:30 pm

Tonight, join a bevvy of good people and our good friend (and pub designer) Bill Watkins, he of many pub quizzes (and of his new website: www.keltcom.com). It’s the Merlins Rest Wednesday Pub Quiz! Bill and his feverish brain will provide 25 questions and a great deal of levity. It really is a wonderful time. Bring your friends, your ringers, even your enemies! Enjoy the midweek, a pie and a pint and stay warm. Quiz starts at 7:30 pm.
