    & A Great

    Fish Story.


    I battered my first fish when I was ten, and my first pickle when I was twelve. I know what I'm doing.

    I have my great-Uncle Gaylord's famous pub food recipes, and I also have his name. Believe me, I've had a much tougher time getting through life with this name than he did.

    I called my pub "The Old Bag of Nails" because the first one was in an empty hardware store. My great-uncle Gaylord called his pub "The Cauliflower Blowfish" and I don't have the foggiest notion why.

    And every day people stop by for great food, great spirits and an occasional hammer.

    Eat. Drink. Enjoy yourself.
    I sure do.
