    We have done the Guinness tour in Dublin. Apparently, part of the wages were 2 pints a day. Good source of iron and calories for workers back in the day.

    I’ll drink to that

    The NYNY room and Gonzalez Y Gonzalez pics are making me “homesick.” Fingers crossed, if all goes according to plan I will be walking back into NYNY exactly 13 weeks from tonight.

    How does Bavette’s compare to Gallagher’s? We’re thinking about giving it a try.

    However, much less disturbing than if I had said STANDING there thinking of @BeeeJay.

    I liked Bavette’s just a little better, but we also got the bone-in ribeye and split it, so it should be a little better than the regular ribeye I got at Gallagher’s last time. I really enjoyed both over all.

    Chalk me up as another Bavette's fan. No knock against Gallagher's, but if given the choice I'd go with Bavette's. Also a big fan of Jean-Georges at Aria, and Bazaar at Sahara is excellent as well.

    Usual caveat that I don't eat beef so am something of an unreliable narrator, though I truly do love steakhouses.

    I like Tyrone. He just follows the rules the management laid down in gruff manner but he is ok.Guarantee he has never been written up but some of the other bartenders have been.

    Starting to wind things down, and a pub is always a good choice for that

    As usual, @MrsIrishDave is going strong and I’m ready to turn in. It’s been an enjoyable trip, no big wins, but the losses are pretty much right on theo and all the food is comped, so I’ll take that! I’ll try to do a wrap up when I get home, but my schedule is pretty busy now. You know, full time dog sitting, thinking about what I’d be doing if I were still working, feeling heartbreak and sadness for my friends that still have to work, etc. Until I can find the time to get to that, I’ll leave you with this view!

    Looks like another nice day on the horizon, unfortunately we’ll see it from inside a metal tube
