When I lived in Hanover NH (back in 1977-1981), one of my favourite hangouts was Peter Christians Tavern, home of terrific sandwiches and some of the best mustard sauce and horseradish sauce Ive ever tasted. (My favourite sandwich was either Peters Mothers Favorite or Peters Fathers Favorite, I can never remember which.) Sadly, Julian Mays 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 Id visit it one day. Now that too is closing truly the end of an era. I see Im not the only mourner.
