Groundhog Day!!

What… again???

Groundhog-Playing-a-Saxophone--91969By the time you appear in town for the Gris, Essex Edwina should be at her post at the town’s “silent policeman” and you’ll pass her as you make your way down to join us for another installment in our Sea Music evenings.  The parade will have already happened and hopefully she’ll still be there.  But we’ll be there, at least in part, and if you’re in town come down a pint or two and join us!



Oh Griswold tree, oh Griswold tree…

Asked by a couple of fans to repost this…

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)




Merry Christmas, Happy Chanukah, Festive Festivus…

A JOYOUS holiday season to every one of you!  We WILL be at our regular Gris show on Monday the 26th and we will celebrate our holiday then.  Come dressed for the occasion, wear that ugly sweater you have nowhere else to show, come raise a glass with us!  This year has been less than stellar so let’s cheer it away with hopes for a better one!

Last Monday Before Christmas!

We’re celebrating our Christmas on Monday the 26th – St-Stephen’s Day for those in the know; Boxing Day for everyone else.  But Monday the 19th is still our regular show… Just starting a tad later to give room to the wandering carolers spreading Christmas cheer to the diners!  Looking forward to seeing you!
