Tradition Revived At Swatling’s Store

Tradition Revived

At Swatling’s Store

Spurbeck’s proprietor Mike Swatling and his Aunt Kristi posed in front of a huge, beer-can-festooned wreath that has caused much comment since it was hung in the past couple of days. Before it became Cooley’s in 2003, the wreath would hang annually on the Bold Dragoon Tavern, 49 Pioneer St.  Kristi, who worked at the Dragoon, used to decorate it annually, and inherited it when the business changed hands. This is her nephew’s first Christmas season since buying the venerable Spurbeck’s, so his aunt dusted off the wreath and is launching a new tradition. Drive by Railroad and Leatherstocking and take a look. (Jim Kevlin/AllOTSEGO.com)
