This Week at Merlins

Well, that was bracing! Let’s hope next year they don’t eat so many fries on the Vikings’ sideline. Man, was that ball greasy….Sigh.

Pagan Night!

Music starts at 6:00 pm. A Folk Jam follows at 8:00 pm.


Watkins Wednesday Pub Quiz: 7:30 pm


Music: Deano and the Dinosaurs (Blues): 8:00 pm

Burns Night
January 29

Burns Night returns! It’s one of the greatest celebration days on the Scottish calendar. Join us on Friday, January 29, starting around 7:30 pm, for a Kilt Night like no other. Details will be sprinkled about here on the website throughout the month.

Amaze your friends and horrify your enemies! We’ll even have a haggis dinner available. And there will of course be specials on scotch. Speaking of which…


We interrupt this week’s rundown to bring you news of Paddy’s arrival: Paddy’s Irish Whiskey, that is.

For those who sample whiskies and scotches, do not miss this one! Paddy’s remains rather difficult to come by here in the States to date, as it is available in only limited quantities for export. (It’s one of Ireland’s top brands. They don’t let it off-shore without a fight!) Paddy’s comes to us from Cork, Ireland; and as visitors to Ireland know, this bottle is revered. It’s a well-crafted blend, aged in oak casks up to seven years.

Pop in and get yourself some while we’ve got some left. It’s going fast!

Back to our week’s programming….


Open at 12:00 pm.

Music: Papa John and the Hot Club of East Lake, 8:30 pm


* Brunch (10:00 am – 12:00 pm)
* The Sunday Night Quiz: 7:30 pm. This week’s guest host: Kirk! He’s a new quizmaster and a good soul.
* Music from Sam Fiske before, during and after the quiz


Valentine’s Dinner

We’re holding our night for lovers one day early. A special dinner-for-two meal will be served. Make reservations early so you won’t be disappointed! Just $34.75. A menu will be released soon.
