I'm the biggest bar bitch ever. I will wait and wait for a seat at the bar. Today, that all changed. No seats at the bar. I'm sitting in Manuel's Tavern in the fucking restaurant by myself. My view choices are the group of girls in front of me or the Whitbread Brewery mirror. Can you feel my disdain? Not even a tv to watch the game. Dont know what game but any would do at this point. Some of you are screaming why didn't you go somewhere else? Good question. I've been at work all day, I'm extremely thirsty for an ipa beer, sort of hungry and tired. It is was too much effort to decide on the next bar. Their beer selection is really good and the food is decent. Remember, my goal was an ipa beer and food came second. I sat in the restaurant and felt so isolated from everything. The stupid wifi wasn't working so my iPad was out of the question. Next time, I will stand and wait for a seat rather than sit alone in the restaurant. I find that time better well spent than sitting alone.
As I'm sitting here finishing this the next day I realized I have the memory of fruit fly. There is a reason I downloaded the catch app. My favorite app right behind untappd. I have a list of bars that I need to visit one being the wrecking ball pub. I need a memory reminder to remind me of this list next time I can't sit at the bar. Given my affinity for bars and good beer I'm sure this next time won't be too far off.
In the spirit of St. Patrick's Day coming up on Sunday. Huff Post has posted a video on the proper way to pour Guinness. See if you agree or disagree with how to pour this beer. Write me if you know a better way.
Avid fan of awesome beer and awesome people. Anyone who has good taste in beer is all right in my book.
