A drink at O’Hara’s, NYC

Kind of strange that for all my wanderings in New York City, I never found myself in O’Hara’s, which is located near the World Trade Center site. At last I stopped in here for a drink.

For all the emergency responders, this place is a site of pilgrimage as it was a refuge on that terrible September day. At present, you’ll find patches and memorabilia posted on the wall from all over the world. The staff is friendly, the drinks reliable. Enjoy, but perhaps with a slightly heavy heart.

The Wooden Nickel

There are timeless names for things and places. The Wooden Nickel as a term has been around for quite a while. In Hillsborough, NC, I found a bar by that name and decided to stop in for some refreshment.

All types of craft beers available as well as a fully stocked bar for whatever else you might want to imbibe. Friendly vibe here, too, which is always nice. The kind of place where you can linger, chat, and enjoy.

Creative Cocktails

There’s a myriad of cocktails out there, some of which are off the charts good. While traveling the world, it’s interesting to try what the local bars conjur up. Here’s one that caught my eye, the Anythm Spirit at Gray’s in Franklin, Tennessee, USA.

Now that you know what’s in the drink, here’s a look at the finished product.

Quite tasty that was, in fact, it tasted like several more, enjoyed in a casual, friendly atmosphere, with some great music on stage, too. Note that Gray’s states they serve, “cocktails, spirits, tonics, remedies,” they are serious.

A drink at Charlie’s, Aruba, video

Still working with the iPhone 6 and that video app. The app is actually more challenging than the iMovie version that comes with the iPhone, which is a disappointment. Still there is some functionality such as exposure control and such that is better. Anyway, here’s a drink at Charlie’s Bar in San Nicolaas, Aruba, DWI.

I hope to get better with this app soon. It is convenient to upload directly from the iPhone. Make blogging a bit more immediate and fun. Still, needs some work and practice. Stay tuned for the results.
