Final Thoughts from Nectar's 

As someone who has frequented Nectar's since moving to Burlington in 1991, I have to say two things just happened I don't think I've witnessed in this bar before: The singing of the National Anthem (loudly and proudly!) and hearing the word "Amen!" after Rev. Joseph Lowery gave his blessing to Pres. Obama's inauguration.

Folks are clearing out and going back to something called "work." As if.

And, by the way, the gravy fries were awesome — as always.

Big shout out to Damon and the crew here at Nectar's. They sure know how to throw a good party.

In the words of my 10-year-old, Phin, who has been my trusty assistant all morning to watch this historic event, "It was awesome ... And, there goes Cheney."

Got something to say? Send a letter to the editor and we'll publish your feedback in print!
