Each year we celebrate the sun’s highest point in the sky by waking early and exercising our God given right to drink well before noon. Our motto becomes: “It must be 8 o’clock somewhere.” At this gathering of the faithful we serve our “On Tap Now” beers plus our Espresso Stout and Orange Hef.
Lovers of The Hef, lovers of good coffee and just plain lovers will attend. And also attending, always attending, will be 8 or so old men (it makes you old) of the Miller’s River Morris Men, of which I am a member. And you know what Grocho Marx had to say about any group willing to admit him. The same applies here, regardless of the actual fact that I joined them and too many years ago to remember why or how to escape. These intrepid dancers of a tradition so old that even they cannot remember its origins, will dance at 9 AM sharp, because the Morris is nothing if not prompt (should begin by 9:30 anyway). They’ve been known to tipple a little too, but only to enable certain of their functions still asleep at the ungodly hour.
