    While you are at 35,000 feet you might as well really have fun. Don't break a hip though.

    LOL ... Great post. If St. Mary's had a good guitar player and some tambourines, it might still be consecrated .... I have always felt Guinness was highly over-rated, at least as you can get it here, even in REAL Irish pubs. Let me know if you find an Irish beer you like. Most of these look absolutely horrid, which is what you would expect from a U.K. publication reviewing supposedly Irish beers: https://www.independent.co.uk/extras/indybest/food-drink/beer-cider-perry/irish-beers-st-patricks-day-brands-a6911586.html

    I actually had that line warmed up and ready to go, but was saved from myself when I noted that there was nary a single porter on tap. Instead I told the barkeep that I was keen to try something I couldn't get back home. He poured me a locally-produced craft pale ale that he felt the duty to inform me, "has a strong taste to it"...even though it was the sort of uber-light bodied sex-in-a-canoe brew that even my wife finds boring. I was about to be offended by his assumption that I was some stereotypical American beer dullard...until I overheard one of my fellow countrymen nearby telling his companion, "When I look at the tap handles and see a bunch of name that I don't recognize I just order a Sam Adams as a safe bet." OK...totally not the barkeep's fault. I know, right? I should have gotten the loaded nachos. It was, on both counts. I've actually had some decent simulation of shepherd's pies state-side, but they're always made with beef. The real deal is much better. For lunch today I switched it up and had the fish-n-chips at the aptly-named http://thechurch.ie, the 200 year-old St. Mary's in Dublin that has been converted into an enormous eatery and bar. It was some tasty, tasty heresy. We sat outside while contemplating our menu options and eternal damnation. That followed our earlier tour of the old Jameson's Distillery, where I paid extra for the small group barrel-tasting option after the main tour. So small in fact that it included only my wife, myself and some young guy who was from the suburb just up the street from my office. Man, you just can't get away from these damned Texans. The whole thing was actually a lot of fun, and far more worth it than the Guiness Storehouse self-guided "tour" that we did after lunch. Here's my normally wine-sipping wife swilling 124-proof Irish whiskey straight from the cask at noon on a Sunday. Just imagine how pissed I'll be about it after all this is costing my kids' inheritance and the amount of time I've spent at 35,000 feet.

    He was the male stripper that was hired by a group of rowdy Irish women who were throwing a bachelorette party inside. I'll bet his g-string would have held together better if Ireland still used 1 notes instead of those heavy €2 coins.

    It was a full Irish breakfast at 8am followed by a long drive to the Cliffs of Moher to play with my phone camera's panorama feature... ...a not quite as long jaunt to Galway for some wandering about their market streets... ...and some helpings of shepherd's pie and fish-n-chips. ...and then on to Cong for a pint and some Marquess of Queensberry rules.
