Worst Guinness Ever
I just left a Guinness unfinished. To that end, I have the following advice - "Never order Guinness from a cranky bartender." Guinness must be served with Craich - i.e. with love and joy. Grumpy, snotty bartenders should never be allowed to serve Guinness.

I might be willing to extend that statement to Newark Airport. I have never met a crankier, nastier bunch of airport employees in my life. From the moment we walked in the door we have dealt with airport employees who are bitchy, apathetic and snotty. (There have been good ones but we have hit a rash of nasty ones.) We have a long wait so we stopped in at the Guinness Pub. I had hoped it would be a nice quiet place to sit for awhile. I walked up to the bar and ordered a Guinness and a bottle of water and pulled out a $10 bill assuming it would be enough. The bartender sneered at me and tossed it back on the counter. I should have just turned and left. next time I will know better. That Guinness tasted crappy and upset my stomach.

Otherwise it has been a relatively good weekend. I think I understand New York now. It's a place people can go to live utterly separated from reality. It's unreal and thoroughly disconnected from the Earth. Fun place to visit. Don't think I could live there.

so if $10 was not enough, what was the cost of a bad Guinness and water?
