Our Dear Friend Meleah inspired me to dust off the bar!

Let’s see what we can come up with now.  There have been a few changes around here.

Different world, different times for sure.

See you soon! IMG_8701.jpg


Tempus Fugit

It does.  Time flies.   Its been a while since I graced the Tavern and served up something.  Kinda miss it. Facebook has taken over a lot, but this is more personal. I need to put some time in at least once in a while to keep my customers coming by.

Other obligations have kept me on the road a lot and the tavern has fell behind in priority. It was fun when I had the place full.


Miss my old patrons, Terri, The Geezer, 4444, The Girl, and all the others. Although I do touch them all with FB.

I promise to put something up soon!


God Bless


Wandering Aimlessly

It’s been quite a while since I’ve been behind the bar here at the ol’ place.

Kinda miss it.

Life has its changes and sadly there’s not a lot of time to do things.  Is this good or bad?  I mean its good to be occupied, certainly not bored.  But being too busy is exhausting.

Maybe I’m getting older.

Wiser…. yeah, that’s it.


Dust, Dust, Dust…… Oh Hi!

I’m Boring

•August 20, 2013 • 1 Comment


How have all of you been?corona

I’ve been pretty busy with a lot of things. No excuses I know I’ve left the bar up to the staff a lot lately.

I’m gonna grab a Corona.  My summer beer.  Someone asked me recently what my favorite beer was and I had to think about it. I’ve been drinking Corona’s with a lime this summer.  Still Smithwicks the rest of the year. Want one?

So I was told recently that I’m boring. This because I don’t like to watch a lot of television, have no interest in anything coming out of Hollywood, and don’t listen to popular radio.

So lying on a chair and vegging in front a TV, isn’t my cup of tea. There is nothing on television I record or “have to be home” to watch.  Oh there’s a couple of shows I enjoy. But I don’t go out of my way for any of them.

Movies coming out of Hollywood are all the same thing repackaged. All are predictable and mind numbing.  I saw “Olympus has Fallen” or something like that this past weekend and it had so many gaps in the story I just got annoyed.

I listen to Satellite radio. Outlaw Radio, Country, and classic Rock.  None of which until only recently is broadcast from New York City.  I enjoy news channels and listen to “The Catholic Guy” on The Catholic channel on Sirius.

Instead, I enjoy exercise. I love walking – do a minimum of a mile a day.  I  am reading 2 books right now. Another “Prey” novel by John Sandford, and “Lift up Your Heart” by Archbishop Fulton Sheen.  I enjoy a couple of online games.  Candy Crush is slowly taking me over. I like Words with Friends.  (someone I just let read this asked if it was for Match .com   )

Anyway – am I boring???

Thanks for stopping by!

Oscars’ Bayside Grille?

•May 4, 2011 • 3 Comments

Hey!  Didn’t see ya sitting there.  How are ya?  Place is in a bit of disarray. Every time I say that word I think of the song Glyserine by a band named Bush.   Glys e rine!  Dis ar ray!   Opps!  Sorry, Gotta stop sampling these bottles before quittin’ time.

We’re in planning stages here trying to come up with the best way to re-introduce the ol’ establishment.  Toyed with changing it to Oscars Bayside Tavern.  Being we’re moving the tavern to a warm climate.  There’s already an Oscars’ Tavern in Philadelphia. I get their email!  Maybe you have some ideas.  I’m designing and registering a logo. So Oscars Tavern could become a problem.  We’ll see.  I could do “Taverne”, using olde English type spelling.  Most of our patrons think that “oldey” type stuff is stupid.  Like “Towne Square”. 

We still plan on talking about what’s going on with the folks here, focusing on all the silly stuff in life.  Still Have our crew take turns posting,  bring in some guest posts.   Thinking of weekly posts, rather than daily. We just don’t have a lot of time lately.  So in the meantime…

What can I get you!?

A friend brought me a miniature bottle of this, which he found in the Cayman Islands.  Now I usually Google a brand name, grab an image and paste it here. But there’s no way in hell I’m going to Google “Big Black Di_k” for images. So I apologize for the lousy photography.   And no – I haven’t tried it yet.  It’s vanilla rum. 

But WAIT!  Theres more…..

I’m told they have “Dry Rubs”.  My friend received this email:
