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:

Sit on down, what can I get ya?

Hope you all had a nice Saint Patricks Day!

Charlene and I had the place kinda decorated. Lot’s o’ green beer flowing. A good time had by all.

I was out of town the earlier part of the week.

Still workin’ on the joint

>ba-thud< ” S#it!”  Ow Jeeeeeezssss……

OH!   Hi there, didn’t see ya come in.  Yes we’re open.   Welcome to Oscar’s Tavern!

Yes, we used to be there. Now we’re here.  Same ol’ place. Some of the characters.  Decided we needed a hiatus, or a “high anus” as our Lovely Charlene jokingly would say.   Kitchen is still being rebuilt.  Just a gin mill right now.

What can I get you?

A Bud?  sure. we have that on tap here.

We’ve been busy.  Yeah…I know, who hasn’t in some form. we’ve had a few requests here and haven’t gotten to it.  I’m going to re-do this place a bit. Change some chairs around.   All temporary stuff for now.

So we’ll let you know when the official re-opening is. Meanwhile stop by here, or here when ya can.

Sending a good Scotch out to Bud. A Natural Light to Terri,  and a Malibu Bay Breeze for Scarlett!


Dust on the bottle

Hi! How are you? Haven’t seen you here in a while. You look good! Eh, the couple pounds don’t show. Don’t matter here.

Yup, I’ve been here a bit. Hired a few bartenders to cover for me while I was away at the other place. Some of the regulars say the place needs me here so I’m gonna try to tend a bit.

Well I have the kids up from Florida now so it’s busy. The place here is slow, so I can jot a few notes.

The lovely and talented Charlene was down in the Sunshine state with family. She’s back now. We agreed we’re ready to step up once in a while to share some of the Tavern’s goings on.

Miss Killian is a new bartender. She’s a pretty one. We call her Miss Killian, though she was officially engaged this Christmas Eve. In this place you own your monicker forever. Congratulations to our new “Irish Red”.

There are some new regulars, along with some of the old ones. Different times, different place. You’ll catch on quick enough!

This post was done on my iPad. haven’t figured out pasting pictures. Maybe our friend Meleah can help us out.

SO…. Drink of the day is Cherry Vodka and Coke.  Yup.  A special created by Miss Killian.  Hope you like ’em.  Say’s it only takes 3.  LOL

What can I get you?

Hope you all had a great Hannukah and Christmas!  Looking forward to the NEW YEAR!

Snoopy Picture here.

Oh Hi! I didn’t know you were here…

Hi!   Welcome to Oscar’s Tavern!

It’s been a while since I posted. Spending more time here.

Not a whole lot going on.   Everyone here is good.  Just business as unusual as I’ve said before.

Still trying to decide whether to sell the place.  The energy just isn’t here anymore.  I’m hardly here lately and Charlene is busy with other adventures.  Skeleton crew.   Willy is gone.   Just not the same. Closed the kitchen.  We have a deal with the pizza joint that moved in next door.  We have tier menu here and we have a door between the place.

I’m doing ok.  Still running around like a chicken without a head.  But what else is new.  Lisa ran away with Vinnie. We knew that would happen. She took our little buddy Eric. And NO he’s not my son, as some suggested. I just like the lil guy.

Still love pie. 

BP is up. Kills my habit a touch.   Comes with age I guess.

Thinking hard about selling the license to that group who wants to put a Red Robin in down the road….


Business as Unusual

•March 10, 2010 • 4 Comments

Business has been slow here at Oscar’s and we are gonna post less.  Not gonna shut ‘er down .  

We want you to visit Conditionally Satisfactory,  Oscar’s more personal blog.  The same characters are there, but it’s more “out of the bar”. 

  We’ll pop by when we can and if we get more time, will spill more drinks and dirt about the fine establishment.

Most of our regulars visit “CS” as we call it.

Snoopy’s comin with us. (actually he’s there too!)

Spring Fever

•March 8, 2010 • 8 Comments

Hey!   How are ya!   Pull up a stool and relax.   Nice weather we’ve been having here in the NorthEast.  Saturday through today have been Spring-like. 

Charlene has Shrimp Fra-diavolo for you today!  The drink special is Coors Light!    What can I get you?

Man we have a taste O’ spring going on here.  Best enjoy it!  Not sure how long it will last. Hopefully we will be done with snow, but my gut tells me we’ll have one more snow.  Hope I’m wrong.   As you know I’m a fan of warm weather.  I enjoy the outdoors.  We all need to rid our cabin fever.

St. Patricks Day is coming up!  Charlene and i are planning the day’s festivities.  Obviously we will have the traditional green beer, and corned beef.  Lisa, the true irishman will make up some soda bread.  Funny we wait for one day to have all this delicious food.  Guess it wouldn’t be special then would it?  Like having Turkey often would take away from Thanksgiving.   It will be a fun day anyway.  We all become Irish.  I’m a quarter Irish.  Hmmm, I was just wondering if everyone thinks of themselves as Italians on Columbus day?! 

I’m excited, I just booked my tickets to go to Florida the end of this month.  A pleasure trip for once. Will visit my daughter and family for Easter and see Willy. I can’t wait!  Definately a warmer climate!

Four high school boys afflicted with spring fever skipped morning classes. After lunch they reported to the teacher that they had a flat tire.

Much to their relief she smiled and said, “Well, you missed a test today so take seats apart from one another and take out a piece of paper.”

Still smiling, she waited for them to sit down. Then she said: “First Question: Which tire was flat?”

I visited a blog today that made me laugh go here.

I’ll be traveling later this month to Europe.  Between that and my Easter trip, It will be hard to post.  Offering the tavern to guest posts again.  We’ve had some great posts from folks like TerriSuprisedmom and the Girl.   How about you?  Let us know!

Have a great day!
