More Shots From the 365th Night!

First off I'd like to mention two blogs who wrote about the last day of my 365 bar crawl. My friends from The Half Empty Glass showed me a lot of support through this year and even hung out with me on two of the more memborable evenings. Here's Fat Al's post about the last night at Mike's Tavern: Consummation. Thanks, Fat Al, I look forward to tipping a few in 2011!

The blog Boteco do Cacique is a Brazlian blog and he's also one of my Twitter friends. Check out his fine post here:  Marty Wombacher termina sua jornada de 365 bares em 365 dias...

I really had a lot of fun at Mike's Tavern on the 365th night of the bar crawl. A good crowd showed up and I got to hang out with a lot of friends I don't get to see very often. One of those friends is Jim "Butch" Borho. I've been friends with this guy for years. We've had many crazy times together (we once shared a stripper, a long story I'm not going to get into now) and I'm always happy to see him. He came to the party at Mike's armed with not only a powerful thirst, but a camera as well. He took lots of photos and here they are. Thanks, Vern (he's one of my two friends I call Vern, don't ask why, I really don't know), I look forward to seeing you in April!

(Note the second to last photo, it's Polaroid I had sent to Vern decades ago when my hair was actually black. Check out the caption, clearly a blogger at heart, even back then!)

Goodnight, everybody!

@Gidgie: Jim/Vern isn't in any of the photos because he took them. Thanks for keeping up the facecrack page!

Great shots from Jim/Vern from a fantastic night! Can't wait to see what's coming up next!

I wonder if I order some Butch's pizza online ... if it'll taste the same ?? Looks delicious ! I should just go ahead and try it anyway !

January 13, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterGENE

@GENE: You should definitely order one, it's the best pizza in the world!

January 13, 2011 | Registered Commenter365 Beers

i had to think about that one a bit.. so which one is he in your pics then?

January 13, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterGidgie:)

@Gidgie: Ha ha ha! You crack me up! If you go to the Mike's post, Jim/Vern is in the first picture to the right flipping me the bird. Consider yourself patted!

January 13, 2011 | Registered Commenter365 Beers

@GENE: I'm thinking the same... Hope they make orders to other continent....

January 13, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterGuilherme

@Guilherme: You'd be the first person in Brazil to eat a Butch's pizza! This would be historical, you could send me a photo of it! Do it, Guilherme!

Thanks for the shout out Marty, congratulations again, and the HEG crew is certainly looking forward to meeting up in 2011.

By the way, what the hell is that thing that appeared on your head? It certainly stuck there pretty well. I guess I can make out a beer mug on it, but I can't read what it says.

January 13, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterFat Al

Yeah he looks like we should call him Vern:)
I'm gonna get a butchs pizza now..
all this pizza talk i just have too.
I feel all warm and squishy thats weeza bees all done with the crawl and we all this here chatting away!

January 13, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterGidgie:)

@fat al
I really love your blog...
I dont comment cause basicly i suck...
but i do try and catch up at least once in awhile.

January 13, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterGidgie:)

@Fat Al: That's a free beer wooden nickel from Mike's. I'm saving it as a souvenir of the 365 journey. It stayed on my forehead all night!

January 13, 2011 | Registered Commenter365 Beers

Mike's Tavern from the inside looks to me like a very large place with multiple rooms. Also going by the pictures, a long bar and several entrances. Yet from the outside it looks rather small, and like it's sitting in the back of the corner house. Also it looks like an old residential neighborhood. And how cool is that,,,to have a bar in a neighborhood,, its like you never have to leave the area. I want to move across the street, no driving=no DUI. lol

January 13, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterAl

@Al: I think Tony's looking to sell the place, you want to buy it?

January 13, 2011 | Registered Commenter365 Beers

This was so cool, so fun, and so totally-super-awesome, Marty!!

January 13, 2011 | Unregistered Commentermeleah rebeccah

Marty; That second to last photo...the Polaroid...you look vaguely Sicilian, like a Goodfella with all that black hair!

January 13, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterJaws the Cabbie

Excellent photos, Vern! I especially like the one near the top with the red glow to it - I like to call that one "Marty: Profiles in Beerage." And I agree with Jaws on that vintage photo. You reminded me of Silvio Dante, but with a nicer rack.

January 13, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterBiff

Mike's is done...
365 bars in 365 days is done....
When do you start the new blog? I'm sure that chicken has had enough by now.

Happy New Year Marty and congrats on making it to the 365th bar!

January 13, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterTricia

Marty has a healthy beer belly in that polaroid picture ... ?

January 13, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterGENE

@Clacky: I'm putting it together now, hopefully it'll be up and running in the first week of February.

@Tricia: Thanks and Happy New Year to you!

@Gene: Yeah, the beer belly was a little bigger back in my youth!
