Behold, Jazz night is upon you . . .

And lo, it is Monday night, and that means bad ass jazz at the Amsterdam Bar. Music starts around 10:00 pm; get there early if you want a table. Get thee hence to hear the jazz and partake of the libations.

"Ho! Ho! Ho! To the bottle I go"

The Corner of the Eagle and ChildPub, Oxford, where the Inklings met (1930–1950).
“Ho! Ho! Ho! To the bottle I go
To heal my heart and drown my woe
Rain may fall, and wind may blow
And many miles be still to go
But under a tall tree will I lie
And let the clouds go sailing by”
― J.R.R. Tolkien
