Thirsty Thursdays: Caledonia

If you've ever said to yourself, what the **** is that organizer thinking putting a 'e' in whisky, then you belong at Caledonia.  This is the closest to Scotland you're going to get.  It's tight and intimate, but after hearing those accents and seeing that scotch menu, you suddenly find yourself in a seat saying whit's fur ye'll no go by ye!  Just give in and let that 18yr old nectar of the Gods soothe its way down your belly. 

The logistics: Yes, this is up on the UES, there are great things uptown!  There is a nearby stop on the 4,5,6 and also a crosstown bus on 86th st that runs every 10 minutes.  I'm a west-sider so you can take the bus with me.  This place is small, so depending on the night it could be crowded.  There are bar seats right when you walk in and couches all the way in the back.  Either way, we will make a home and enjoy the peat.

    Another fine meet up thanks to our leader. I think I'm more use to having doughnuts afterwards than pizza.

    Here we go you Scottish wannabes! Caledonia tonight, I'm excited, got a couple distilleries I plan on thoroughly sampling. I know there are some big games this afternoon so if you start drinking early, so be it, I'll probably be pregaming also! Hopefully, we will have a reason to celebrate tonight! We have a big group and this place is quite intimate, so it could be tight. I'm hoping to get some of the space all the way in back past the bar when you walk in. For those first timers, I'm rocking jeans and brown T with a large mechanical owl! Chocolate Thunder and I will keep an eye out for newbies wandering around, cya all tonight.
