Pleasant Surprizes

Last night, before we went to the Blue Ox restaurant in downtown Lynn, we had cocktails at Maria Rowen's Swampscott apartment with Lisa and Harvey Rowe and Lou Panakio.

It was a nice gesture by the Tuna Lips Antagonist, Maria, but I didn't expect her to pull out all the stops.   Which she did when she had a bottle of Lagavulin Single Malt Scotch Whiskey ready and waiting on her kitchen counter.

That is pure class.

So was the dinner at the Blue Ox.   I was expecting a pub food menu and atmosphere, but it had the taste and the feel of a high end Boston location.  Hats off to owner, Charlie Gaeta and his partners.

Although I was a little disappointed that I didn't run into some old Lynn guys, we did see some Marblehead people that I hadn't seen in a long time, including Chris D'Orio, one of my all time favorites.

But the surprizes didn't stop last night.

When we returned from our Fresh Ayer trip this morning, Tommy O'Shea dropped by with a bottle of J&B and a bottle of Dewar's White Label that he had in the house.   Tommy isn't a scotch drinker, but he can hold his own with anyone if Coors Light is in the mix.  To be sure, these are blended scotches, and not Lagavulin, but it's the thought that counts.... not the Scotch.

Maybe I should buy him a six pack of Coors.
