Guinness and Harp = Half and Half

Don’t worry, the math is correct. All you need is half a pint of Guinness and half a pint of Harp Lager and you’ve got yourself two Irish beverages double-teaming your shitty day and pounding it into a submission worthy of the name Happy Hour.


I had this while at Kelly’s Irish Times over at Union Station this past Friday. It’s great being able to have a beer a few blocks away from the Capitol. I get libations while the suits and ties make laws (lawbations? no, we probably don’t want any of those). Talk about enjoying the scenery of the most powerful city in America while having a pint after a hard workweek.

You can do this with any dark or light beer. In fact, you don’t even have to call it a half and half. Many call it a Black and Tan, but there was no way I was going to make that the title of this post. Let’s just say I don’t want the wrong kind of traffic being directed to Mad Hungry. Black and Tan + Mad Hungry = …Yeah, I don’t want to know.

The trick is making it so that the beers don’t mix. I hear it has something to do with a spoon.

On another note, barhopping with Foursquare is Mad Fun. I’m so going to blog the shit out of that site. It’s like getting Xbox achievement points in real life. Oh God! I’m nerding out here!
