Welcome to JohnMichaels Pub's Blog

Welcome. I moved to Nashville in 2001, and have be blessed to make some wonderful friends. After moving from a house in Florida, to an apartment in Nashville, I missed being able to entertain groups of friends simply due to lack of space. When I finally decided to make Nashville my home and buy a house here, I wanted a space that friends to gather and socialize in a relaxed and friendly atmosphere. The basement in my new house, which opens into the back yard made the perfect space, so JohnMichael's Pub was born. I have made a couple of trips to Ireland since moving to Nashville and loved the atmosphere of the pubs there. So I made my pub to resemble an Irish style pub to give the atmosphere of a local community pubs in Ireland, but of course it is not a true "Pub" (Public house) since it private place for my friends to gather. I plan to use this blog to post thoughts, ideas, recipes and a variety of other things related to my pub and the parties held there. If you see anything here that interests you, feel free to email me. I have a great group of friends that is very diverse, but I am always open to making new friends.

Scotland Day 2

On our first full day (day) my friend Matthew and I headed up
to Stirling. The picture on the left is of one of the outer walls
of the castle. The city of sterling is below. The castle sits atop
the shaft of an extinct volcano. Most of the mountain is long eroded away, leaving the very sold shaft that is solidified magma. The photo below is of me on the castle wall.

Below is another photo from the castle showing the city below. The grouse (yellow flowers) are in full bloom all over Scotland at the moment.
