St. Patrick's Day


Ohh boy, this St. Patrick day was one of the best. First of all, as you well know, Lenny was in UK with his (now mine as well) friend Kon.
It is not like we are Irish, but this day is a good opportunity to celebrate with pint or two of Guinness.
We went to "Great Harry" pub . When I was looking for a link, I found some really bad reviews, but the pub was not so bad. It is not as new as it is on the photos, but clean and tidy. They have a very good selection of real ales as well of lagers. But, you are here not because you wanted to read pub review...
So, we headed for the pub pretty early, at 12:30PM had 3 pint (each) and couple of burgers. Guys had traditional Angus steak and mushrooms pie with pint of Spitfire ale (Premium Kentish Ale)... Amazing! Anyway, check out the photos on web album (http://picasaweb.google.com/alla.markh/17032007StPatrickSDay)...
Now, since it was Irish holiday and our American friends did celebrate it properly, they have received an "Irish Luck" gift: their flight was delayed. You probably won't consider it as a gift, but if you get £408 compensation (which covers original flight tickets plus all the expenses they had) and opportunity to have more pints you will probably change your mind.
We met again in the centre, in the place called "The Long Acre" in about 10:30PM, had more bear and basically, had a really good time...
Enjoy...
