Tom, didya know that Dublin (Ohio - home of Wendy's and ipso facto  
Tom Horton's!) just finished hosting the Dublin Irish Festival.   
Yeah, in Dublin, Ireland they are probably shrugging.  However, it is  
the largest Irish festival in the USA.  800,000 people.  Tickets for  
Saturday were $6.50 and I got to hear the Prodigals, Seven Nation,  
Tannehill Weavers, Black 47 etc.  What a bargain!  Old Bag of Nails  
was serving their wonderful fish & chips for just $5.  Never saw any  
coffee vendors - what a lost opportunity to sell 'Irish Coffee'.    
There were lotsa booths selling Killians.  Yeah, that would be the  
"irish" beer brewed by Coors. Well, if corporate sponsorship allows  
this festival to continue and offer great entertainment than I can  
live with it.
Never tried the Highlander Grog at Scotties.  The original owner sold  
the business off to some new folk.  They also got a liquor license.   
Now you can sell liquor on the east side of High Street.  But wait  
there's more!  Westerville is getting an Old Bag of Nails and it will  
actually serve booze!  Nope that wasn't an earth quake here in  
central Ohio that was several thousand temperance union members have  
collectively rolled over in their graves.
Not familiar with "Yeah, Me Too."  Is it still in business?  Where?

Ah Dublin, a fine place ... oh, THAT Dublin. It's a = nice place too. Iwould echo Denny's comments but = give Scottie McBean a fail grade fortheir coffee = (hey, their specialty is "Highlander Grog" flavoredcoffee). Staufs roasts and something is bound to be = fresh. They sueto use really nice green coffee = about 8 years ago but they buy onprice now, = from all the things I hear (my local connections). My oldDiedrich is at a little shop called "Yeah, Me Too". = (I think it's areally funny name for a coffee = place -it's a sort of admission ofthere being = too many coffee shops, and the cliched names - thenagain, some people think Scottie McBean is a good = name!) Anyway, theybuy good coffee too but are = in Columbus. It seems like there would bemore, = but for all the coffee places out there, there are still few = toget really excited about ... isn't that = strange. Tom

Wow - that is news, for those familiar with Dublin. Things are 
changing! I forgot the other interesting thing about coffee in 
Columbus - people LOVE Tim Hortons. Ever hear the story about TH 
putting nicotene in coffee? Not sure if there is any real evidence as 
far as that goes

Indianola around Weber. Near Studio 35, that movie theater where you 
can drink beer and watch the film.

If I remember, I'll motor up Indianola this afternoon on the way home from 
work and see if it's still there.
Got NO clue about Dublin coffee - but there used to be a small coffee place 
on 2nd street in Columbus.   Nice couple ran it, but they left town a few 
years ago.   The owner served my one of the absolute WORST cups of coffee 
I'e ever had.   T'was 100% Robusta! - an educational experience :)
