I am so relieved that I managed to find (so far) at least one bona fide Supper, on the day, in NH
— though I am not that thrilled that it is at noon, which rather than being incongruous, borders on being blasphemous,
since the consumption of a wee dram or two (and maybe a few more)
is obligatory to honor the great man.

If you are aware of other Suppers, on the day
(those pushed back to a weekend don’t count),
in NH please let us know.

I thought there used to be one in Center Harbor, Moultonbotough
or was it North Conway?

A series of personal lists to share ‘MY New Hampshire’ with any interested reader.

Check CATEGORY (>>>) for ‘Ten In New Hampshire‘ for the other lists.

This is not a complete list, not even close, and excludes those prefixed ‘New’, e.g., New London. In alphabetical order.

Writing my earlier post on ‘Portsmouth‘ promoted doing this list today, though it had been on my list of lists to do.
