This is Buzzy's Country Store blog designed to keep you apprised of what's going on at the Store. Buzzy's is a general store located in St. Mary's County, Southern Maryland near Pt. Lookout State Park. Buzzy and Jean Ridgell purchased the Store from Jean's father Harry Raley in 1953. Buzzy operated it until his passing in 2009. His son J. Scott Ridgell is the current owner.

Black Wolf and Shotski's

Had some folks in Buzzy's Country Store yesterday who were here visiting for a reunion.  One of the visitors told me about his restaurant  The Black Wolf Supper Club in Eugene Oregon.  He then showed a video on his phone of some folks at The Black Wolf bar doing Shotski's.  The following is not the Black Wolf video but another one I found on YouTube.  It will give you some idea of what Shotski's are all about.

Proving once again that I need to get out more, this was my first encounter with the Shotski phenomena.  As I noodled around however, I learned that Shotski's have been around for some time now (click here.)  One vendor even markets his Shotski's with the motto - "Friends don't let friends drink alone."

If I thought that I could implement something like that at Buzzy's I would try doing so.  However, it looks like Shotski's involve a little too much organization and coordination to make it a go at Buzzy's where folks like their shots straightforward, quick and no b.s.  I think I'll hold off for now trying Shotski's at Buzzy's.

And speaking of drinking alone, have you gotten your tickets to see George at the Calvert Museum in a couple weeks?
