    From the Boylan's website:

    " Although we may be the smallest soda company around, our flagship brand "BOYLAN'S ORIGINAL BIRCH BEER" is the most locally loved soft drink of its time. Rich with history, Boylan's Birch Beer started in a apothecary in the early 1890's and developed into the most popular flavor of The Boylan Sodaworks. Boylan was a bottling and keg filling operation located in the heart of Paterson, NJ, the first industrialized city in the country. Competition increased however, and in the 1930's Boylan was forced to close its bottling lines, leaving Boylan's Draught Birch Beer as its only product. Shortly thereafter, the rights to the name, the formula, and the sole route was purchased by the driver. He, by himself, was responsible for pulling Boylan's Draught Birch Beer from near extinction to a beverage that is enjoyed by thousands at Fourth of July parades, town picnics, hot dog stands and many good times. His reward for this accomplishment was a 7 day - 80 hour work week, but he would have it no other way. In appreciation of our grandfather's effort, we honor him with this bottling project."
    Simply the finest soft drink around these here parts!

    That it is, Ed. The problem is finding it. Not too many places carry it and as the supply is limited, when I do find it, I tend to keep that information to myself.

    Trust me. When this boy puts in his papers in the next couple of years, somewhere WAY further south than NJ will be where George Lives. NJ will still be a nice place.
    You're talking about FLORIDA, right? Right???

    I don't know...I have relatives in Roanoke, VA. Or is that too close to TN?

    You definitely will not see me in FL, either.

    Default DINERS!

    Ahhhh Yeahhhh.....Back in the day.......When Camden or Philly had REAL fires, there was nothing like buffing the job, and then heading to the Collingswood Diner, or the Brooklawn Circle Diner for a hot open-faced turkey sandwich and fries, or a Western Omlette with cheese & homefries at 3am, with all the other buffs!!!!!! Memories!

    The fact that if you go to a bar and order the "New Jersey Turnpike" the bartender will just ring his rag out into your glass for two bucks should say something....

    Have to differ there. My vote is for the Sawmill in Seaside Heights.

    Excellent point. Who wants to go live in a place with no Snow, Ice, Cold Winds, Noreasters, Alberta Clippers, and.... well.... You know, all the FUN STUFF that we have up here. My late father had an interesting angle to Southern Living though. Some years back, Dad was already eightysomething, when a neighbor asked "Earle, When you gonna retire and move to Florida? Dad said "I am retired, and I'm not moving down there to live with a bunch of old people" The Siren started winding up and he headed for the Firehouse. George, you'll love Roanoke, Great town. Stay Safe....
