Five Course Scotch and Cigar Dinner
Featuring ~ The Lost Distilleries
September 25th, 2014
Historic Water Street Inn

6 P.M. SOCIAL HOUR:
Butler Passed Hors D’oeuvres
Smoked Haddock Spread on Oat Crackers
Served with ~ Stratheden
Stratheden Distillery – 1829-1926 –
Sweet and peppery to taste, at bottled strength, with a trace of salt and a warming, medium-length finish. Lingering heat. Similar profile with water, at reduced levels, but without the salt and warm finish.

7 P.M. START WITH:
APPETIZER
Scotch Eggs
Hard boiled Free-Range egg, wrapped in house-made sausage, breaded and fried
Served with ~ Stratheden Vintage
Stratheden Distillery – 1829-1926 –
Surprisingly sweet and peppery to taste, at bottled strength, with a trace of salt and a warming, medium-length finish. Lingering heat. Similar profile with water, at reduced levels, but with more fruit.

SALAD
Bibb, Arugula, and Nasturtium with Toffee Walnuts and Roasted Shallot Vinaigrette
Served with ~ Gerston
The Gerston Distilleries- 1796-1882 & 1886-1914 –
Smooth texture, sweet taste with smoke in the finish and a mineral twist. Water softens the texture; less sweet but still smoky, and a lingering smokiness in the aftertaste.
ENTREE
Pork Porterhouse with Charred Apple Demi-Glace, “Neeps” and Mash
Served with ~ Gerston Vintage
Smooth texture, sweet taste and a surprising amount of smoke in the finish – more coal smoke/steam engine than peat smoke. An unusual, antique taste, which holds up well with a drop of water, although the smoky element is reduced.
DESSERT
Pear Tart
Served with ~ Auchnagie
Auchnagie Distillery – 1812-1911 –
Very sweet to taste at bottled strength, with considerable spice across the tongue and a warming, medium-length finish. Fruity boiled sweets in the aftertaste. At reduced strength it is less sweet and less spicy, but remains fruity, with a trace of vanilla sponge – Eve’s Pudding.
$74.95 per person (plus tax & Gratuity) ~ includes 2 Hand-Rolled Cigars

Live Music This Weekend May 30th – June 1st

photo11
May 30th & 31st – Thistle & Rose
In the Pub 7:30 to 11:30

Thistle & Rose @ Charlie's Irish PubThistle & Rose (Holm Blum) find their roots in Celtic music, but have musical tastes that branch as far and wide as the Celts traveled this earth. Expect variety performed in a Celtic-Folk style. Join us for traditional Irish pub songs. Sing along with our Indy favorites. Find your cool with Jason Mraz and Ingrid Michaelson. Then make room in your musical lexicon for some Jeff Callander (Thistle) originals! We’re ready for a good time. See you at the Pub!

May 31st Vinnie Rose 1:00 to 4:00 on the Patio

Vinnie Rose
Vinnie Rose first took up music singing in his church and school choir at the age of 5. At age 12, trying to impress a girl, he took up guitar. The girl’s not around but the guitar proved to be in it for the long haul. Through his teens he taught guitar lessons, studied rock, jazz and classical guitar and voice and also enjoyed performing in community and regional events.
In 2007, Rose moved back to Minneapolis, MN and has become an established musician in the Twin Cities jazz and pop scene. Vinnie currently performs as an acoustic guitar and vocalist as well as freelances with jazz small groups, big bands, rock/wedding bands, acoustic groups, orchestral ensembles, and classical guitar settings.

June 1st Eric Olson 1:00 to 4:00 on the Patio

Oly
Eric Olson, nicknamed “Oly,” grew up in a small town on the St. Croix River (Stillwater) just outside Minneapolis, MN. Oly started playing drums at age 11, which is apparent in his rhythmic guitar playing. Oly began his professional singer/songwriter career in Colorado, where he founded the band Tunnel 6 in 1995. Touring successfully throughout CO, the band released its first album, “Tunnel 6,” in 1997 under the production guidance of Aaron Trooien. In 2002 Oly released a solo acoustic album, “Holly Would,” with producer Brad Witham. In 2004, Tunnel 6 was replaced by Oly’s next project, Stereomaid, again fronted by Oly and featuring his original songs and unique blend of rock, folk and punk. In 2008, Stereomaid released “The Little Things that Come Between Us,” produced by Greg McRae (Rose Hill Drive, Flobots). Notable shows included the Roxy in Hollywood, supporting Porcupine Tree at the Fox Theater in Boulder and helping causes important to Oly with a number of benefit shows. Oly also co-founded and fronted a popular 80’s tribute band, Huge in Germany, from 2004-2009, which opened for Jefferson Starship and Country Joe McDonald.

Oly returned to his Minneapolis roots in 2011 and moved to the St. Croix river valley where he first discovered music. In a nod to the great 70’s rock that has always influenced his musicianship, Oly released a 7″ vinyl record with Minneapolis freelance producer Ed Ackerson (Golden Smog, the Replacements) in 2012.
