Met a Blogger

The incomparable Borepatch, Mrs. Borepatch AND #1 Son joined me at Ellicott Mills Brewing Company in Old Town Ellicott City to enjoy brewpub beers and venison sausage. What a treat. Yay.

They are in the process of moving Case De Borepatch, Boston to New Tara Borepatch, or whatever they call it, near Atlanta, and were passing through my region of the Urf. They were sure to pack the snow blower for the trip. If they decide to sell it, it will fetch a good price in Georgia I am sure.

It'll be quite a culture shock in GA. From Massachusetts gun rigmorole, to, walk into a gunstore with a Georgia driver's license and walk out with a hog leg to shoot. I can't wait to hear his first gunstore post.

We talked shop, not so much gun related, and the joys of cross country driving. Oh, and lawn care. A good time was had by me. If it was not had by all, then they did a good job of faking it and I appreciated the effort. So lets just assume: "A Good Time Was Had By All."

And now I can add another '~' to the list bloggers I have met.

I used to live right up the road from there on the north side of U.S. 40. How much of old town survived the fire they had? I need to get back out to MD to visit sometime. I'm sure a lot has changed in 20 or so years.

No noticeable damage from the fire now.

And thanks to my reading Borepatch, I now have another blogger to read! I also enjoy the beer and food at EMBC (I live nearby in Catonsville). Have you been to Victoria Gastro Pub?

New Jovian Thunderbolt said...

Now I am googling Victoria Gastro Pub

French Fries fried in DUCK FAT?! Oooooooo...

Chris said...

Yes, duck fat! They're every bit as good as that sounds. Try one of the beer samplers (5x5oz selection). Great place to meet with friends for a leisurely meal (speaking from experience).

And I was down in MD too...
