The Three Mile Island: An Update

I visited John again this weekend as I traveled for one last time from New York to Christiansburg. While in Arlington, I was able to go on a pilgrimage to John's local bar, Kitty O'Shea's, home of the famous Three-Mile Island shooter. Kitty's, by the way, is located at 2403 Wilson Blvd, in case you were wondering. Here's their website.

The creator of the famous glowing green goo is Erik, who apparently doesn't work on Saturdays and doesn't like to share his recipes. Consequently, I was not able to enjoy the now-improved shot, which John says tastes like "An atomic-powered slurpee. Seriously, it goes right to your brain."

I strongly encourage you to visit the bar and try the wonderful mind-eraser, available evenings, Monday through Friday. If you do, please post your comments here!

  • I was in and out--I got in late last night, and was out this morning.

    BTW, where's Judy?

  • You wont leave it alone will you? - the nearest thing I have to getting drunk is eating banannas on the brink of fermentation *giggle* - Still wishing I was drunk as a lord here (or there, or anywhere)

  • Crankster,

    I recently discovered that bar w/ a buddy of mine. I live on Wilson Blvd. in Arlington.

    I was impressed w/ the crowd. Around my age when I went on a Saturday night (or younger) and plenty of nice-looking women. Good music on weekends.

  • So let me get this straight, you quit your job, and since then, all you've been doing is drinking and driving?

  • So what's a 'slurpee'? Sounds suspicious.

    Puss

  • Jude-
    John, bless his heart, has the good sense to take me out drinking whene'er we meet. Alas, we don't meet too often.


    Matt-
    I agree--I can understand why John likes it so much. Although, when I visited on Saturday, everyone was watching soccer (DC vs. Utah) and cheering like loons. Not my thing, really.


    Lee-
    Not so smooth, really, but I'm getting into the rhythm of it, if you know what I mean. I will definitely give you and the CEO a call when I'm next in town!


    Scott-
    I was going to correct you, but then I realized that your version sounds a lot cooler than my actual life!


    Puss-
    Convenience stores over here serve a thick, icy, sweet shakes. Imagine a non-alcoholic iced margarita and you won't be far off the mark.

  • I'll join ya Lee! Oh, was that too forward?

  • I remember back fifteen or so years ago, a local bar came up with a mixed drink that became very popular, very quick, and then vanished just as quickly from the scene. It did a good job of separating bar patrons from their common sense and their money, but also refused to stay inside the bar patron’s bellies. The sidewalks in the bar district were slippery with that blackish burgundy mess by 10 or 11pm on the weekends. I think it had, among other things, red wine and possibly rum in it. Whatever it was just didn’t mix well with stomach bile I guess.

  • Reflecting Pool-
    Sometimes, you beautifully halve the distance between Lou Reed and Jane Austen!


    Slaghammer-
    You just brought up some bad memories...and a little bit of bile.
