Caravan to PUB from New Albany, OH
« on: February 26, 2015, 22:04:20 »
OK folks,

September 12 is rapidly approaching, so I'm wondering who wants to caravan the 4.5 miles from my home in New Albany, Ohio to Joe's lawn in Blacklick for PUB.  Should take about 11 minutes.  Let me know.

To sooth the parched traveler, Flannigan's Tavern is at the half way point of the long journey between New Albany and Blacklick.

Mike and Garry, don't succumb to the siren call, follow the advice of Cervantes: "the road is always better than the inn (tavern)" !  ;D

LOL  at the original post from Mike  ::)

Alfred .... I think that be "The journey is always better then the destination" However, in this case the destination will be unforgettable and great memories are made of this ... I know you will agree.

As far as I'm concerned I'll be checking out that Tavern on Friday ... before heading to the destination :)

EDIT, perhaps I better leave the tavern till much later in the day ~grin~ first priority would be to help Joe set up if help is needed.

Hello Mike,

Secured my accommodations at a local B&B if you PM me your address and time of departure on Saturday morning I'll join you for the 4.5 mile drive :)

Hello Joe,

Flannigan's Tavern might just be the spot to assemble the cars, looks like there be plenty of parking space to gather for the final trip to your place :)

A good place for lunch, a cold beer and some local culture. A chance to attend "two PUBs" the same day! ;D
