    Could be I'm forgetting and confusing who the varlet really was...someone was definitely hanged there and left to eventually fall into the Thames. Maybe Redbeard, then.
    Some beard...maybe Casey Blake?

    i hope you are spending time in Edinburgh
    the path to the castle has many a pub serving giant pints of cold Tennents lager
    the main brewery is in Glasgow but its rare you ever see it stateside
    just a lager but delicious on tap and truly something you can't find everywhere
    not sure why but i can never find it in any of the specialty shops

    Yeah well spend a few days in Edinburgh but mostly in Blair Atholl, Ft. William, and Isle of Skye. Should be pretty epic. I’ll definitely give your lager a try. Thanks

    Haggis is ok. It isn't awful and it's not amazing. But while I don't have a sweet tooth per se, the sticky toffee pudding in Edinburgh was f**king amazing.

    I love England. Studied there and didn't want to come back. This was before wife and kids and a mortgage and....well some of you would know.

    Haggis and blood sausage is awesome. I like offal. If you are into food, go to the Mecca of snout to fail cuisine. St. John's in Smithfields. Not hip. Not a tight male jeans kinda place, but revolutionary food. Fergus Henderson launched whole style of cooking that was familiar pretty much everywhere but not so much in the Western world. He made that stuff gourmet.

    Ox heart. Marrow bones. Sweetbreads. Blood cake. Tripes. An entire roasted pigs head.

    Not kidding, awesome and one of the more important restaurants in modern time.

    Yeah ,haggis is OK. Edible. Just trying to make a joke.
    I have eaten a whole range of food in the UK, having been born there, and it's cuisine is far less worse than thought of here ( and maybe the rest of the world). I was fed dishes that became popular ( mostly because of WWII rationing) when I came to the states, since that's what my mom learned and had to cook.
    But if I had to pick a country's cuisine to be married to for the rest of my life, I'm pretty sure it would be Italy.

    Yes, Italian ranks high on my list. But if I could only pick one and had to eat that every day, it would be Greek. A lot of similarities to Italian, but in general less carb-based and less reliant on cheeses, so healthier eating in the long run (think Mediterranean diet). And enough variety to keep it interesting. But then again, that's the country of my ancestral roots, so I may be a bit biased.

    Dad in law just read this thread. He's there all right the time. He added one thing....

    Go to the top of The Shard Bldg. He says it'll give you a solid 360 degree view of the city.
