drew came to visit two weeks ago with some folks he’s studying abroad with in krakow. it was so great to see him as well as others from UT. i miss knoxville like crazy. i got to show them some of my favorite pubs in the city and also tagged along to do all the touristy things that i had yet to do here, including the guinness storehouse. i was actually really impressed by it. it is a self-guided tour on how guinness is made, and you can take your time in each of the rooms as you wind your way up the giant pint glass, taking pictures and sampling the beer along the way. once you’re at the top, you are treated to a free pint to enjoy along with the 360 degree view of dublin in the gravity bar.
