Oh Griswold Tree, Oh Griswold Tree

By now a traditional repost…   OUR Christmas will be Monday the 23d!  And don’t forget that all of December we begin a little late in order to make room for the wandering carolers.

Oh Griswold Tree, Oh Griswold TreeGriswold Tree
Upon the coal stove eternally.
Oh Griswold Tree, Oh Griswold Tree
A relic from antiquity
For Christmastide and St-Patrick’s spray
For Mother’s and for Groundhog Day
Oh Griswold Tree, Oh Griswold Tree
In every tap room photo be!

(Jos. Morneault – Noel 1997)

Thank you and Pirates

Last night’s sound board meltdown was dealt with as best we could and we thank you for your patience!  Glad that we had invested in powered speakers; plugging directly into them worked in the pinch!  In the end, we had a good evening!

Don’t forget that Monday the 16th will be “Pirate Night”.  A pre-cursor to Halloween, come dressed as a pirate, bar wench, whatever you think relevant!

Hawaiian Shirt Night

Monday the 19th will be our annual Hawaiian Shirt Night!  SO many reasons but mostly that it’s usually hot and who doesn’t love exotic drinks and girls in grass skirts!  Break out your favourite Hawaiian shirt, Bermuda shorts, grass skirt, grab a lei and come on down for drinks and song!  Pass the word; come and get leid!

Margie

This photo has hung on the wall near the piano for as long as I remember performing with Cliff at the Griswold Inn.  Last night David Littlefield told me about her… Called Margie, her name was Margorie and she had served in the US Navy ’round about WW1 and for a little time afterwards.  She used to be a regular at the Gris when David began coming down in about 1979 and “Margie was then in her 80’s”.  She was known for being the life of the party, flamboyantly dancing during some of Cliff’s songs, and would sometimes pull out the piano to play a pop song or two from her youth.  If you know more about her, please contact me with the information and I’ll add to this remembrance!
