Merlin's Rest Pub – Merlin's has become the unofficial "official" pub of choice for local Scots, although Merlin's ownership, menu, and decor represents all of the Celtic nations. Merlin's also has (by far!) the most extensive selection of single malt scotch that I have ever found!

Soleil Levant Authentic Pioneer Cabin Bed & Breakfast – OK, it's not Scottish, but Lorie and I stay here when we need some time away, and we love it, so we thought we'd share! If you are looking for a quiet retreat in the woods, with no computer, no TV, and no traffic noise, you've found it! This authentic log cabin was built in about 1850 by German settlers, and is located in Sunrise Minnesota, about 40 minutes north of the twin cities. It is extremely authentic, and decorated with period furnishings. (It has also been discreetly updated with necessary modern amenities.) They don't have a website, and they don't advertise, so this is a really unique find! Call owner/inn keeper, Alice Bennett, to make a reservation or to receive a brochure: 651-674-7361

Gordon has worked and played with some of the best soccer players and coaches in the world. It is a rare opportunity to have someone of his talent available as a teacher. If you have any interest in soccer, don't pass up this opportunity.
