So although I promised I would blog more yesterday, I did not. I was too busy celebrating in the local Irish pub. It had been closed all day and opened in the evening. I had already started in another pub earlier on in the afternoon. So I enjoyed drinking Guinness, with a shot of Jameson to accompany it. Jameson may not be the most sophisticated or the most renown whiskey, but it goes beautifully with a beer, especially a stout. I am starting to think it is a sine qua non drink to go with the Guinness, although it does bring up my alcohol intake and increases the risk of hangover. I do have a bit of one today, although it is not the complete Irish flu.
So I drank, ate (more on this in another post) and got merry. I even sang a bit of Irish songs, as there was a band playing. Well, a man with a guitar and another one with a violin. The landlord and landlady couldn't just go with a playlist, not in a respectable Irish pub. I did not know all the lyrics, but I have heard all the songs. It is a great way to stay patient while you are waiting to be served. Because there was a lot of people and service was slow. My wife and I even met at random some of our neighbours. You see the drink of the man on the picture. It was Beck's with a green colouring. I say this partially as a disclaimer as I would never drink this, not even drunk. I always wear green on St Paddy's, but never ever drink green. The proper alcohols for the day have to be Irish and, when it comes to beer, very black.
