It’s getting hot out…but it’s cool in Merlins! Come have a rest and a pint at Merlins Rest. Use the free wi-fi if you like and catch up on some email, blog, read the news, etc. And while it’s cool indoors, we’re also providing a little heat via the Hot Club. Catch ’em live tonight in the pub.

Tom Bradley Joins the Taste

No, not the Taste of Minnesota. We’re talking about the monthly single-malt scotch tastings! Our next is Thursday, July 12 at 7:30 pm…and we’re hitting the Highlands this time. Come sample 4 – 5 scotches for $25. Our very own Jordan will lead the way. And ol’ boy Keith gave a call the other day and left word that local musician Tom Bradley will join the evening and provide some music after the tasting. Outstanding.

Ceili Dancing and Open Mic Monday

What else is going on? Plenty. On Monday, July 9, traditional Irish ceili dancing will take place in the pub with an open mic to follow. And as some of the dancers are also excellent singers, it’s going to be a grand time. Got a poem or song to contribute? A slice of fiction? Join us! Fun begins around 7 pm.
