It was only a matter of time before we’d find our Finn version of McBob’s. We asked our hotel staff about finding a good cup of coffee and they sent us to Twin Peaks bar. They were right. Not only did we get good coffee…but the awesome bartender directed us to his favorite liquor that we need to bring back for our home cabinet. One star Jaloviina. A combination of Koskenkorva and Cognac. But not too diluted. So I also had to get a bottle of Koskenkorva, flask size, for the competition Saturday. Which means that since it’s only Thursday, I’ll need to get another bottle for Saturday. Hee.
It’s pretty nummy.
We caught on quickly to the eclectic music selections of our Finn McBob’s. It went from Ozzie, to Johnny Cash, to Michael Jackson, to Guns’N’Roses. In between the best of the U.S. we heard some Finnish rap…I think. I have no idea if it was Finnish…but it was something I couldn’t understand so I’m assuming.
Our Finn version of Milwaukee Dan (McBob’s)…
It’s a beautiful Friday here. -18c when we got up, but the Sun’s out…so stay in the sun and it’s all good. Finnish competitor Tomi Lotta, his wife and mother-in-law (I’m assuming) rolled in last night and we had a nice dinner. They are very friendly and fun. Pretty cool.
Friendships born on the field of athletic strife are the real gold of competition. Awards become corroded, friends gather no dust.
