Meconi's Pub & Eatery's Guinness

Bacon Cheeseburger goes well with Guinness

I have a very simple policy about eating meals while drinking: I don’t. Not, at least, when my goals for the night include over-inebriation. Snacks and appetizers? Fine. But big, juicy bacon cheeseburgers and a side of sweet potato fries? Sweet Christ, never while boozing, and never, ever while on a Guinness tear, which I was on Saturday at Meconi’s. There are exceptions to this rule, including one found under the How to Sober Up clause, but I’ve had only three frothy pints when I succumb to the temptation of said bacon cheeseburger — partly because I’m starving, but mostly because only a few places in town offer such a beautiful burger.

I couldn’t make it through the entire televised Husky game riding the Guinness. I switch to Bud bottles because my gut is a brick wall and Guinness just won’t make it through the cracks.
