Title: Taproom Tuesday is dead, Long Live Milly's Mingle
Post by: K. Darien Freeheart on September 15, 2011, 01:08 PM NHFT
For the past few months, Taproom Tuesday (a historical weekly gathering for the FSP and various liberty lovers) has seen declining attendance. So much so that for three weeks in a row, new movers to Manchester have gone and literally been the ONLY attendees.

This is sad.

There is a new event, called the Milly's Mingle that intends to replace it, welcome visitors and introduce new movers to Manchester. It takes place on Tuesdays between 5:30 and 9:30 pm, though feel free to hang out as long as you'd like!

The Milly's Mingle is a weekly event for Free State Project members and other liberty-loving people to gather, eat, drink, socialize and be merry.

The event is open to anyone, but visitors and new movers to New Hampshire are ESPECIALLY invited as a welcome and introduction to Manchester's community.

Milly's Tavern is Manchester's only brew pub and has amazing drink and food specials during this event. *Be there in time to take advantage of these specials!*

1/2 price appetizers until 7pm with $1.50 beers.
Between 7:00 and 7:30, beers are only $1. Between 7:30 and 8pm, beers are $1.50 with $2 beers served for the rest of the evening.

Milly's prefers to have combined checks, but as a compromise they will break checks down by table. So please be prepared to have a shared bill with a few people next to you. The number of people per check should be small enough to easily account for everyone on it though, so it shouldn't be an issue.

Milly's Tavern is located at 500 Commercial St in Manchester.

That's too bad, the time B and I went to Milly's the food was CRAP and we haven't gone back.

Definitely agree with Doobie, most of the food is mediocre at best, however the beers are really good (only on rare occasion have I not liked something), and you can't beat those prices for them.

Which I think is why everyone went there....to drink....  but Becky nor I really drink.  If I'm going out to socialize it's for appetizers, which Milly's is NOT the place.

There's not a single place in Manchester that people agree on, perhaps with the exception of Jillian's which we meet at for the Manchester Freedom League.

Taproom, Milly's, Strangebrew, Margaritas all have people who boycott them. Can't please everyone, sadly.

LOL

Whaaaa?

Anyway, David Krouse is visiting Manch and will probably be at this tonight. I might poke my head in briefly as well. Not really a big fan of either location (Murphy's or Millie's).

I would think that Strangebrew is a no-go for obvious reasons. Cop bars aren't really welcoming spots for liberty lovers.

You might not care for the initiation rituals to the gay gang.

Strangebrew isn't the only cop bar in Manchester. The Shaskeen is also very friendly with the police. That said, there's a handful of people here in Manch of the opinion that it's the BEST place to be. When they beat that guy up at SB, we held a protest at the Police Station. While it could rightly be said that the police station isn't the most friendly place for liberty-lovers, it's bringing the "fight" to their turf on OUR terms.

If cops congregate and get drunk in Manchester, shouldn't activists be there to keep tabs on them?

Also, I've created a second thread called "Milly's Mingle". That will be the official thread for the event on this forum and will be linked to the calendar rather than this thread. I won't be creating new ones as time goes on, just updating that one.

Shame about Strangebrew. Definitely (was) my favorite place to drink in Manch and the food was pretty good, too. Lots of craf

Maybe someday it can be re-homesteaded and be a good hangout for Freestaters.
