Never ceasing in our quest to find the world’s greatest pubs, Pete and I are off to the sunny Canaries to hunt down Top Tourist Trap Taverns. We go so you don’t have to.

Pete may suffer some form of withdrawal symptom from the pubs of (North) London and from proper English lager. However I cannot wait to get my chops round that pissy Spanish stuff and if we find anywhere of note you will be the first to know. Dos cervezas y dos cuba libres por favor barman.

Hasta la vista.

let me be the first to say it: if you didn’t happen to notice that garish, that obtrusive and, yes, just a wee bit hopeless message to the right, today is tom ewing’s birthday. i first met him when he was my current age. scary.

a tom moment: our first encounter was in alt.music.techno, nearly four years ago. i posted in a thread about the chemical brothers, how the mainstream media was willfully overlooking their indebtedness to hip-hop. well, apparently, i didn’t know what i was getting into as there was something much larger going on within the thread, and so he brusquely pushed me aside. i hated him then, and i hate him now.

happy birthday, tom!
