I love pubs

[This entry originally posted on How To Get Lost: I love pubs.]

Last night, Amy and I decided to check out some of the local pubs near our hotel. Here’s what we noticed.

  1. Local pubs have a great atmosphere. Some don’t, and you can tell right away — when everyone stares at the “outsiders”.
  2. All food and drink is ordered at the bar. Ain’t no waitstaff.
  3. Guinness comes in two varieties: “Normal” and “Cold”.
  4. Guinness tastes way better in England.
  5. Pubs aren’t as smoky as we’d expected.
  6. Pubs close at 23:00. What the heck is up with that?!
  7. Fish and chips isn’t just a meal — it’s almost a religious experience.

A typical British pub ... and dark
