Perfect kickoff for @englanddaynyc weekend: #fishandchips & #oldspeckledhen at @poundandpence while #PresidentObama (@whitehouse) and @ukprimeminister #davidcameron on the television! @nycgeorge #fishandchipsfriday #nyc #libertystreet #specialrelationship #saintgeorgesday #saintgeorgesdayusa #britsinnyc #freetshirt
Fun afternoon yesterday at @englanddaynyc with its founder @richsexton and my friend @brianhagan for #SaintGeorgesDay. 340 years ago, the progenitor of my maternal ancestors in America, Richard #Buffington, left Marlow, #Buckinghamshire, aboard the Griffin and crossed the Atlantic. A Quaker, he settled in #BucksCounty, Pennsylvania. There's a village remnant of Buffington, PA and a #BuffingtonIsland in the Ohio River. ====== Rich and his team lined up #OldSpeckledHen, 18 participating pubs, and other sponsors for the day to benefit the Saint George's Society of New York (#SGDcampaign, @nycgeorge) and NYC's own @QEIIGarden. I wrapped up the afternoon with a couple of pints at @BarleycornNYC and a determination that #Newcastle #werewolf #redale has an appropriate taste-finish hint of #heinzbakedbeans.
