Repping St. Andrew
The Grey Lodge would be a great place because of their beer selection and generally cool attitude but they take it to a whole other level with their Friday specials. Tonight they’re celebrating St. Andrew, patron saint of Scotland with Scottish beers, Scotch whisky and even some Scottish food.
Details after the jump.

Scottish Food: Scotch Eggs and Cullen Skink. We decided not to do deep fried Mars bar this time, but we will be making Scotch Eggs. Chef Mongo is very excited about deep frying hard boiled eggs. “This isn’t
something they teach you in cooking school”. He’s also excited about making the soup too. Of course we will have our fish and chips, but they don’t count 100%, since we will be using our usual cod, not
haddock which is what they generally use in Scottish chippies. (thanks to Sean Drake for that info).
