I paid a visit to The Whisky Shop in Union Square last weekend (in the back of WM Glen & Son, a Scottish gift shop). While the "Shop" was small, the whisky selection was impressive with numerous unusual 750ml bottlings. I also made a new friend, Mark Cassidy, the whisky buyer for the shop. As expected, he was a wealth of information, spoke with a heavy accent, and was a gentleman... all while wearing a kilt.
While stopped at Frjtz on Valencia in the Mission for refreshments, a companion pointed out an interesting piece of tiled artwork adorning the wall above the ketchup and mayonnaise.
