The Green Dragon Tavern.

This place is steeped in history. A favorite haunt of Paul Revere and John Hancock, here were planted the seeds of America's revolution; here the Boston Tea Party was planned, the "midnight ride" of Paul Revere; here the Sons of Liberty (John and Samuel Adams et. al.) discussed how the new country should be governed.

Yes -- the Green Dragon Tavern, home of Freemasons and Founding Fathers -- was THE place of inspiriation...which makes one come to realize a most disturbing fact; America was brought forth into the world by a bunch of drunks!

The original Green Dragon still exists and now, in tiny Carlsbad another Green Dragon has opened its doors.

Boasting a huge dining room, tavern sitting area (upstairs and down) and sharing space with a museum, this Green Dragon offers a fun afternoon and a good compliment of various beers.

When you first enter, the museum beckons. Glass protected placards describing the contents; pictures, history and reproductions of related documents (but thankfully, no Declaration of Independence or Constitution because every museum everywhere has those treasured pieces of parchment). Pictures line the hall of this 1770's - type mansion and the hallway leads to the dining room / tavern.

A good selection of food and not your typical burger and fries either. Wife Persimmon and I had a charred corn and bacon flat-bread that was good, not grand (the corn was not what I would call "charred") and also a bit over-priced BUT they did have an Allagash Cureiux and Sam Adams (duh!) Double Bock on tap along with other local craft brews (and not just Stone Brewing, thank you!)...but again, the beer prices were elevated. Curieux is a grand beer but not worth $9.

Still a different afternoon in a different kind of atmosphere. It was fun to close my eyes and pretend that I was sitting next to ol' Sam discussing how best to smite the redcoats....and then laugh at our ideas....only to realize the next morning, we'd written it all down and now could be considered traitors.

Yeah. Fun times.
