Hail Caesar


Nope, this is not a reference to an upcoming movie. What it refers to is Canada’s best selling cocktail: the Caesar. Dubbed as the spicy cousin of the Bloody Mary, its key non-alcoholic ingredient is Clamato juice – suspicious as it my sound, the Caesar is actually delicious. Should I have to choose between a Bloody Mary and, say, Big Eddy’s Caesar – I’ll take the Caesar anytime!

Big Eddy's delicious Caesar - the slice across the glass is a pickled gherkin, the glass is rimmed with celery salt. Yummy!

The picture above has been taken on the regular Wing Night at Big Eddy’s – our 10 year old son Max has fallen in love with the BBQ Chicken Wings served every Wednesday at our local. Hail Caesar!

Almaty – Day 5 -Thank God it’s Friday


So, predominantly another day of work. Followed by a visit to a pub – in this case Mad Murphy’s at Tole-bi Zhenkova 12. We arrived shortly before nine, just in time to see the first gig of the local band playing rock classics. And very well they played, at least to the ears of a Munich based German, where the bands playing in pubs usually will not play anywhere else in the course of their career. A good crowd was there, not overly busy but crowded enough to get a good party atmosphere. A few people started dancing, so a good place to spend a Friday night at.

Friday night in Mad Murphy's. Live band in the background - the frontman credibly performed songs sung by  Axl Rose, Liam Gallagher.

It was a great and relaxed start into the weekend – looking forward to seeing something, but unfortunately the weather forecast is really bad.
