Edinburgh Literary Pub Tour

download (2)

Take a tour through pubs which writers like Roberts Burns and William Wordsworth frequented, and delve into stories of their inspiration, sexual intrigue, drinking, and debauchery. The tour starts off at the Beehive Inn, located in the Old Town, where people can check in or buy tickets and then head upstairs with a drink or two.

Throughout the journey, the guides act out a battle of wits: one provides the rough, dark, and drunken side of writers and their processes while the other lays out historical facts and poems.

The two jest and banter with each other to give a lively tour; one which gives history from all angles and brings the audience into the dark, yet inspirational times of writers.

Make sure to bring a light jacket for it gets a bit chilly at night and be ready to listen to tales of history under the dim lamps and soot stained buildings from the Old Town to the New Town.

Scott’s Oyster Bar

Opened 26 years ago, Scott’s Oyster Bar aims to provide fresh seafood and a place for people to dine and catch up on long missed conversations. All of Georgetown, Texas is known for its rustic ambiance and rich history and this place doesn’t let you down on that note!¬†Located a couple blocks from the square, this bar is part of a tiny plaza where you can get an assortment of treats. From wine and cheese to a blueberry snow cone, you’re sure to find something you like.

What’s great about this place is that it’s very laid back. The service is wonderful, and the waitresses are more than happy to help you choose your next beer. Each night they have a different special. Last Thursday, when a friend and I went it was fresh alligator. I’m not talking the regular alligator tail. This was the main white meat of those delicious creatures! It was juicy, tender, and flavored to perfection. I tied some Cajun fried corn with it and wasn’t let down.

After eating an appetizer, drinking beer, and having your entree, it might be too much to go for dessert…¬†At least I thought so at first until I heard they have lemon cake. Make room! Usually, I’m a chocolate girl. Throw chocolate in my face and I’ll dive for it. But the lemon cake was different, and the waitress recommended it after all the seafood, saying it paired nicely. She wasn’t wrong. That was the best piece of lemon cake I’ve ever had.

Scott’s Oyster Bar is a great place for family and friends. You can go for a couple of beers or get a full entree. Whatever your mood, they’re sure to accommodate!
