unfortunatly unless you know the bartender buybacks are few and far between on st. patrick's day no matter where you go

some douchebag on the third floor of connolly's gave me a pint of guinness that was obviously from a shook keg... all white foam... and wouldn't take it back, giving me the "have ya ever been to new york on st. patty's day?" line like i'm supposed to feel sorry for him because he's gauging prices to take advantage of the day. i left it there, ate the money, went over to the temporary bar by the window, got a bud lite, gagged on it's disgustingness, went downstairs back to where the guinness was actually flowing.

i only had one non-guinness the entire day... was quite proud of myself. green beer's for pussies.

We got a buy back round, but they insisted on paying for it. I think they did anyway - I stopped arguing when I thought I looked like a cheap ass and sort of zoned out.

I was going for a 100% Guinness event, but the first bar I stopped in didn't have any. I had a McSorelys, which I discovered I really do not like - I don't think the place (a dive on 9th) has ever cleaned their taps.

Really? It's awful in there. The bar was patched with large peices of plywood. The bartender and some customer were getting all into dental talk. No me gusta the oldest bar in the Manhattan.

I'm guessing he's super serial.

Honestly, Beav, I had four Guinnesses total Saturday, and none were buyback rounds.

I'm just glad that someone backed up the exiustance of buybacks.

Headache - that's not the place I was in. This was a bar with just some stools, real narrow, no room for tables. It was on 9th and 40th or so.
