Farewell to Peter Christian’s Tavern

When I lived in Hanover NH (back in 1977-1981), one of my favourite hangouts was Peter Christian’s Tavern, home of terrific sandwiches and some of the best mustard sauce and horseradish sauce I’ve ever tasted. (My favourite sandwich was either “Peter’s Mother’s Favorite” or “Peter’s Father’s Favorite,” I can never remember which.) Sadly, Julian May’s prediction that the Tavern would still be around in the 21st century was mistaken; but I took comfort in the thought that a branch still existed in New London and I always figured I’d visit it one day. Now that too is closing – truly the end of an era. I see I’m not the only mourner.
