Tonight: Open Mic
Time: 8:00 pm

We start off the week with the Open Mic, hosted by Harrison Matthews. The ever-changing participants of this event deliver an eclectic mix of songs, stories, poems and so forth.

It’s your mic, it’s your talent.

We invite all patrons to join in the community: lend your voice and ears! Raise a pint and start the week with a little creativity.


Our friend Bill Watkins has taken over the Wednesday night pub quiz in a bloodless coup! Join Bill for 25 questions–some gimmes, some tough ones, some a touch irreverent, etc. It’s a grand time in the middle of the week.

Win praise and pints. Tell your friends and tell your enemies!

Quiz takes place every Wednesday night at 7:30 pm.


Friday night is our annual Halloween bash–or what on the Celtic calendar is called Samhain. It’s the Celtic New Year, and it’s a fine reason to celebrate.

We’re rolling it together with our usual Friday night revelry: Kilt Night!

A costume contest will be held and there will be prizes. Cheers, friends! We’ll see you soon.

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. We’re even going to throw in some prize drawings.
