with owner David Deck at Pusser’s Bar

We’re in Munich when a message comes over Facebook from Bobby Nesbitt, Key West’s premier piano player and partner of our great exercise leader Mike Mulligan. Bobby says the best piano bar in Munich is Pusser’s, where he has played many times. We should say hello to the owner David Deck. So we do. Bobby: David sends his regards and says he may be in Key West in two weeks.

We learn that the word Pusser’s is actually the drunken slurring of the word purser’s, and refers to the rum dispensed daily to sailors in the British Navy (by the purser) for 300 years until 1970. We have a great time listening to the music and drinking the rum.

Pusser’s is located in an exciting section of Munich, with lots of bars, restaurants, shops and tourists. One block away from Pusser’s, a sober reminder of why we are in Munich, is the infamous Hofbrauhaus, a large beer hall where Adolf Hitler, in 1920, launched his career with a speech to a meeting of the National Socialist German Worker’s Party.
