Scottish Pub NIght

#NipClub pals, it's been a great month in Scotland. We've never done an extended stay in one area before, and it's been a while since we've done a weekend party. 

I need to thank my Co-Managers @RealFakeGator and @TinyPearlCat who both worked their paws to the bone to make sure this event happened. I was not able to provide as much help and support as usual and they filled the void. 

I'd also like to thank Head Barktender GeorgeTheDucK, Head DJ @Lucky_GSD and Sekurity Boss @BrutusTheDane for organizing schedules and overseeing their teams. 

Of course let's not forget @DanaPixie and @MizzBassie for arranging terrific prizes and quizzes, and everything else who helped plan, promote, and ran events at the pawty. 

This week we'll be finishing off the large supply of food and drink we brought in and saying goodbye to Scotland the RIGHT way. With a night in the pub. Like any good Scotsman. 

On a final thought, we will hold these extended stay pawties 3 to 4 times a year (with much more opening time). And, until the return of #NC24H, each will include an extended weekend pawty.

SO....if you'd like to suggest a geographic location for the next extended pawty, DM me some ideas, include pictures and historical info if you wish. (If I don't follow you yet, let me know. I'll follow you right away  so you can DM me. 

Thanks for everything!

After 3 fantastic pawties in Scotland, we thought it would be nice to spend our last night sharing stories of our adventures and all the wonderful things we've seen and learned.   And of course we'll lift a pint in a toast to friends old and new, and toast the country that has hosted us for the last 2 weeks.

The simplest definition of "pub" and what most of us think, is simply a place where alcohol is served and consumed, essentially the equivalent to a bar in the US.  Anyone who has been to both knows that they are not the same.   Much older than it's American cousin (pubs have been around since the bronze age), pubs serve not only alcohol, but hearty meals.  The atmosphere is welcoming, calm and relaxed.  Clientele is both young and old, so the pups and kittens are welcome too.

What better place to be tonight than at #Nipclub's new pub, the Drunken Bahoochie.  For those of you who played the "Say What" games with @lampwireslayer @squirtthecat  @tweetingtruman and @savehood cat, you know what "bahoochie" means.  It's become @realfakegator's favorite new word, so if you don't know, just ask him.

We learned about Burns Night and all the tradition that goes with it.  We've once again tried our paws & wings at Highland Games.  We've learned the difference between a Reel and a Fling by watching @patsydog1 and @lampwireslayer dance on the bar.  We've learned lots of new Scottish words and phrases.  We've searched for and found Nessie and found her to be very accommodating to our requests for selfies.  We've sampled the finest in ales and Scotch whiskey.  We've filled ourselves with a sampling of all types of local foods.  The bravest of us sampled haggis and lived to tell the tale...and some of us discovered it was good!
