Here’s to 2010!

Happy New Year!  I hope everyone had a festive evening and that heads are not terribly sore today.  It’s the start of a new decade and I for one am very excited about it.  I am an eternal optimist for the most part and I am choosing to believe that 2010 has good things in store for me.  I think I actually deserve it after the E Ticket ride I had this year!

New Year’s Day is typically a very social day for the Scottish people.   They visit friends and family; eating & drinking up a storm.  But I am using it as a day of reflection.  I am counting my blessings and planning for really good things to happen.  I am looking forward to a date tomorrow with a guy I actually still like after seeing him several times — that’s very cool and something I haven’t been able to say in a very long time.   I am healthy, happy and most importantly, at peace with myself.  It has been a very good day!

My New Year’s Resolution –  “I will work on being a better person” – it’s as simple as that.  I just plan to go a little extra each day to make a contribution to the planet and to the people living on it.  Just think of the possibilities if each and every person did one thing daily to help someone or some cause.  I am guessing we would see significant change.

I wish everyone the best things in 2010 and I have faith in all of you.  Tonight I will drink a beer and toast to your health and prosperity – Cheers!

  3. Nestled in a quirky college town and home to Ohio University, Athens, Ohio, is known for its booming music scene, the largest year-round farmers market in the state and its offering a unique blend of 20 bars. A culmination of all three of those things—two music venues, a diverse local food menu and the town’s only microbrewery can be found at Irish-themed Jackie O’s Public House and Brewery.

    Jackie O’s has recently expanded its services by opening an additional venue, which neighbors the existing microbrewery. The new space has allowed the former brewpub to increase its room for three more beer fermenters, while the larger kitchen in the new side has attributed to the restaurant’s expanding menu.

    What really sets Jackie O’s apart from other microbreweries and restaurants, though, is owner Art Oestrike’s incorporation of a local mantra. In a town that is home to one of the highest poverty rates in the state, Oestrike is committed to supporting area businesses and the local economy. This local vision has been applied to all aspects of Oestrike’s operation, as he is dedicated to trying to get all supplies—be it food, furniture or fermenters—within a 100-mile radius of Athens. Patrons and townspeople alike have welcomed and celebrated this mantra, and bloggers and writers alike have embraced it, too.

    We’d like to extend an invitation for you to visit Jackie O’s. Open noon Sunday through Saturday night, you’re always welcome. And if you’d prefer a private beer tasting, just call Jackie O’s at 740-592-9686.

    Thanks,
    Your friends at Jackie O’s Public House and Brewery
