We’ve been really busy at the inn lately with our fall projects but all of the stars lined up tonight and we were able to get out and enjoy a pint at the Dog Star Tavern on 2nd Street.  Other than taking photos for the blog as I wandered by on my evening walk, I’d never actually been a patron before this evening and… I like it very much.  Any bar that has exposed brick wins 90 points for character, alone, but it’s a very comfortable pub throughout.  No smoke, spacious but intimate, just the right lighting and a good selection of beer on tap.  I settled for the Killer Whale Cream Ale.  Yum.  Top that off with an extraordinary dinner at 29 South (shrimp and grits with coffe and doughnuts sundae) and you’ve got your self an innkeepers’ night out to remember.  In fact, it would work really well for guests too.  Cheers!
