In the city, SFO…

My X Spot™ = In the City

My X Spot™ = In the City

As you know, I love to “Xperience” life! …everything from the great outdoors to the urban landscape.

Recently, I had the opportunity to take a road trip to San Francisco, California. It was one of many treks to the city I’ve experienced over the years. While I love the great outdoors and the solitude it provides, my soul also craves the people watching and interaction with others urban life has to offer. BTW, it’s true about the beautiful women in California.

San Francisco is populated with a lot of interesting residents and it’s also a destination for many foreign travelers so you get exposed to a good variety of people and personalities. Hence, I’ve been able to meet people from all parts of the world. Interesting that they all like their libations (that could be because I meet a lot of them while sitting at the bar); Best part of that is that after a few cocktails, you’re soon conversing like you’re long lost friends.

The one thing that all foreign travelers that I spent time with had in common is that they all wanted to visit San Francisco so they could “Xperience it.”

99 bottles of beer on the wall…makes me want to sing thirsty!

Undeniably, there are some good Guinness influenced escapades that originate from the 2 am last call in Dublin, CA. However, for the beer aficionado, I’m sure they pale in comparison to the Guinness Storehouse, Dublin, Ireland Xperience.

For those who have made the pilgrimage to Guinness HQ, the image above is probably a familiar site. It’s a picture of Guinness bottles through the years courtesy of my cousin, Mark, who is a connoisseur of all things beer and someone who is always out there Xperiencing life.

Just like all tequila drinkers have a story to tell, so do all Guinness lovers… Though after some late college nights quite often the tequila drinkers needed someone else to fill in the blanks of their story. The following commercial from Guinness seems to tell the story of the people who I know who love to drink the beer:

“The choices we make reveal the true nature of our character.” …Guinness wheelchair basketball commercial

Xperience it,
