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 2009 trip

I have been in Scotland a week now, and failed to post anything until now, so here it is. On my first day (after my arrival day) we went to Rosslyn Chapel. I am posting a picture here of me at the door. It is a beutiful and magical place, unfortunatly they do not alow photography inside, because some idiot fell taking an photo and is now has a suite against them.

We also stopped by Edinburgh on the way back to the house and walked around the "Royal Mile" area some. We ran accross the little cafe pictured here on a side street. This is where J.K. Rowling "mulled over a coffee writing her first Harry Potter novel, " hence the sign stating it is the "birthplace" of Harry potter.
