single frame: Damion at Nine Irish Brothers


Damion at Nine Irish Brothers

Damion and I have sort of settled on the Nine Irish Brothers pub in West Lafayette as the place we go for dinner. Now that he’s 21, we can both hoist a Guinness. And it’s on tap here, fresh and good.

We had a very nice afternoon together. Two men, their film cameras, the open road, and sights to see.

    The Mrs and I like that place. But now that my mother is back across the river we don’t get there any more.

      That’s too bad. Perhaps you and the Mrs can visit the one on Mass Ave when you want your fix.

    Your son likes Guinness, further proof of your diligent parenting work.

    We tried to get Derek (17) to try beer on a hot day in Costa Rica this year. He found it disgusting. Further parenting is required to demonstrate responsible drinking.

      He drinks Guinness with his dad, but the jury’s still out whether he likes it! Alcohol has never held much allure for him. I need to work on him — I could use a new whiskey-drinking buddy!

        There’s a challenge. Next time we see each other we must introduce a whisky from our respective nation. Frankly I have know nothing about decent Canadian whiskey since I like Scotch, but I think I’ll have a while to prepare for this..

          All the Canadian whiskeys I know of are inexpensive mixers. That said, in a pinch I’ll sip good old Canadian Club straight.

    Nine Irish Brothers is a great little place. I was at first disgusted and then surprised by the fried pickle.

    My favorite Irish Whiskey is Red Breast, it is a single pot still and I highly recommend it. There is another called Writers Tears that is on my “to be sampled” list.

      Ohhhh Redbreast! It’s so good! I’ve not tried Writers Tears and now I will look for it.

    My gosh. Look how grown-up he is! And how wonderful it is to imagine father and son, sitting down for a chat over a Guinness. These are the moments Damion will treasure for years to come, Jim.

      Something my wife has taught me by example is the power of creating simple pleasant memories. They really can be the fabric that knits people together!
