First, Tuesday night’s happenings:
* At 5:30 pm, Jim Brooks (and often Wild Bill Watkins) hosts an Irish hour here at Merlins. Stories, jokes and conversation characterize this weekly gathering. It’s a great time…and it pairs well with dinner.
** Around 7:00 pm, a free public screening of the Norwegian reality TV show “Alt for Norge!” (Everything for Norway!) will take place. It’s brought to us by our awesome staving music friends, who have made every other Tuesday here at the pub a truly unique experience. This week (Feb 8), Alt for Norge’s Episode 3 debuts: “Rudigard!” Kari Tauring notes that after the 45-minute show, staving music will take place.
*** At 8:00 pm, the Open Jam begins! Come armed with an instrument or voice or just a thirst and a set of ears. All welcomed, really. It’s a blast.
Every year, Merlins holds a special Valentine’s Dinner. Fine food and mood. This year, we’re offering a spectacular $39.50 dinner for two. The meal features a cheese appetizer, two entrees and dessert. Choice of entrees:
* Thousand Hills aged prime rib with green beans and new potatoes
* Wild rice stuffed chicken breast with green beans and new potatoes
* Penne ala vodka with salad
