This post card is from Joon Bar & Kitchen which is at the very end of Cape Cod, 119 miles away from Tavern at the End of the World.
Back on May 21st I left an anonymous note at a bar in Charlestown, MA. Along with my note, I included a five dollar bill for the finder to get themself a refreshing beverage. I’ve left similar anonymous notes in various places but have yet to ever hear from the people who have found them – until today.
Anthony Kaczynski, a musician who says he plays regularly at the Tavern at the End of the World where I left the letter, dropped me a note in the mail along with his band Fireking’s CD. Sweet!
Their music is loud, energetic rock n roll. I enjoyed it, but I have a feeling that seeing them live is the real treat. You can check out Fireking here. Enjoy.
Thank you for your letter – I’m glad you found my note at the Tavern at the End of the World. The Year of Letters has been an awesome project and making random connections like this one is just one of the many cool things that have happened along the way. I enjoyed your CD, thank you for sending that. You guys rock! I’d love to see you guys live. If you ever venture down to our nation’s capital, let me know!
Keep on kicking ass!

Tavern at the End of the World, Charlestown, MA.
When I travel, it’s easy to fall behind on writing letters. Sometimes it’s easier to leave some anonymous notes around the cities that I’m visiting. I did that on Monday night at the Met’s game and tonight I thought I would leave a note at the Red Sox game, however, Sox tickets were going for no less than $40 so I skipped the game.
I’m staying in Charlestown, MA tonight. There’s not a whole lot of places to go for dinner near my hotel – to be honest, there is only one place: Tavern at the End of the World. It’s a good join – they had some nice live music and I had an interesting chat with a guy fresh back from a trip to Florida on his Harley.
I ate dinner there and enjoyed a couple of local beers. I took a few minutes while I was there to write today’s letter.
I’ve made a commitment to write someone a handwritten letter or note every day for a year. Today, my note is to you. If you’re here at the Tavern at the End of the World, you’re probably thirsty – you know, there is not a man, woman or child in these United States of America who doesn’t enjoy a nice cold, refreshing beverage. Your next one is on me.
