Gobble-ets of Fire


 Hi There, Welcome to Oscar’s Tavern!  How are you doing today!  Hey you’ve picked a good day to come in! Free shots of Wild Turkey Bourbon for you. Our way of thanking you for your patronage! In the kitchen today filling in for the lovely Charlene is Belinda! She has prepared us a special treat! Filet Mignon wrapped in bacon! Yes, Wash that down with a beer, or some wine, top it off with that Wild Turkey! MMMMMmmm Right Beinda?!

What can I get you today??

So here we are, the Thanksgiving week. Lot’s of people are off so its been busy here. Lisa says that last night we were so busy she had to call Willy in. She tried to call Meleah, but she’s on holiday in Mexico. Vinnie closed at 1:00am. Or was it 2:57am….  So what are you doing tomorrow? We’re having a turkey here for all of our regular holiday folk. Yes, we bring in the strays but love ’em all like family.

We’ll have the Dallas game on the widescreen so we can all boo at them (sorry Dallas fans) We’re a Northeastern tavern.  Leo will show up with his F*&K Dallas” shirt on. Bobby with his ” I’m a Giants fan” shirt which on the back says, “and whoever is playing Dallas”.  LOL  we don’t hate Dallas, the town, just the team. My dear friend Doxie is from Dallas and we love her to death! But honey we’re rooting for Seattle. (and the Cardinals)

 Oh, there is one thing we like about the Dallas Cowboy organization…


  Mmmm Cupcakes!


A man in Jacksonville calls his son in San Diego the day before Thanksgiving and says, “I hate to ruin your day, but I have to tell you that your mother and I are divorcing; forty-five years of misery is enough.

“Pop, what are you talking about?” the son screams. We can’t stand the sight of each other any longer,” the father says. “We’re sick of each other, and I’m sick of talking about this, so you call your sister in Denver and tell her.”

Frantic, the son calls his sister, who explodes on the phone. “Like heck they’re getting divorced,” she shouts, “I’ll take care of this,” > She calls Jacksonville immediately, and screams at her father, “You are NOT getting divorced. Don’t do a single thing until I get there. I’m calling my brother back, and we’ll both be there tomorrow. Until then, don’t do a thing, DO YOU HEAR ME?” and hangs up.

The old man hangs up his phone and turns to his wife. “Okay,” he says, “they’re coming for Thanksgiving and paying their own way.”

Today is the busiest day for travel they say.   Wouldn’t know it by how many are here today at the Tavern!  

Well let me get busy here.

From the gang here at Oscar’s, Charlene, Willy, Lisa, myself and sometimes “Y”.  Have a great Thanksgiving! be sure to thank everyone who has been kind to ya, and pray for those who haven’t.
