Just in time for the Holidays

posted by on December 2 at 13:50 PM

This slog news really needs a new category: Booze (why isn’t that a Slog category, by the way?).

Some audacious motherfucker in Dublin stole a truckload of Guinness, Budweiser and Carlsberg from the Guinness Brewery at St. James Gate. At this is one of my spiritual homes, I feel slightly violated, but also in awe of the sheer nerve of this guy. He made off with 450 kegs, destined for the black market, which makes it like Drugs, I guess. His criminal mastermind method? Drive into the parking lot with a semi-trailer cab, hook it up to a loaded trailer, and leave. Brilliant.

I wish more crimes were like that.

Booze is a drug; it's just legal.

Dominic Holden is a person; he's just lame.

Ryan is a troll; he's just... well, a troll. No further insult required.

And you assume it was a male who did it?

So sexist.

The article's pretty clear on that point, Curtains...

What makes you think it's destined for the black market? Maybe it's for personal consumption. It is Ireland after all.

I haven't checked, however you might
peruse the Stranger Forums. Booze(or Bars) might already exist as a category within the Forums, and it should be if it isn't.

And since we are discussing one of my favorite topics, where does one find a proper margarita in this town? I'd like to do a margarita tour, however I am wondering which establishments make the best...Preferably a traditional mix,
sans the trough sized volume of a single drink, sweetness and slushiness. Of course, by the pitcher is always best when endulging friends and enemies.

TIA for any and all replies.

I was under the impression that the green 'category' box was a simple text box... you can write whatever you want there, right?
