Hello!

Welcome to The Epic! I am launching this blog as a manifesto for and a guide to living well. The title and motto of the blog are taken from the Epicureans, at least some of whom believed in the notion that not one minute of the future was guaranteed to them and that as a result they had the duty to live life to its fullest every moment.

I believe in discovering fun and pleasurable things wherever I find myself each day and I am told I have a knack for unearthing them. My hope is that by sharing in my pleasures and some of my ways of finding them you will begin to collect all the riches that lie in the moments of your life. They are there. Take them! All our lives should be.....Epic.

Fuzzy Photos From Great Bars

The Pub, Hopkins International Airport, Cleveland, Ohio. June 2010.

An airport bar par excellence. Great atmosphere. Great food. An amazing scotch and beer selection, including a new favorite...

Belhaven Twisted Thistle. Belhaven is a Scottish brewer and my favorite of all time. Their Twisted Thistle is similar to an India Pale Ale and was a very happy find inside a busy airport at the end of a rather long day.

Brewers' Subsidy Note: Neither The Pub nor the Belhaven brewing company paid me anything for this post. I wish they had.

I do believe your fuzzy photos are among my favorites! You and my son would have wonderful "beer" conversation! Hope you have a wonderful 4th weekend holiday. xoxo

Happy 4th! Love the fuzzy photos- it has so much more atmosphere than a regular photo :)

Preppy, I dont know that much about beer. But I seem to drink it all the same...

DC, thanks! Sometimes a round or two more atmosphere than planned...

Not much on beer. But this has awakened a thirst today!

Mrs. E. and I are headed for Boston at the end of the month. Any suggestions for drinks, dining, sights, etc.?

Geez, who knew you could get this in Cleveland. I'm on the hunt.

M.Lane said...

Easy, I'll ponder my last trip and send you a note.

Tintin, you won't be sorry. Other Belhavens I love are the regular Scottish Ale and the Wee Heavy Stout.
