... well, at least it has for me! I arrived at the JW Marriott Houston Downtown a couple of hours ago, had some work to complete and then set to exploring... first stop Griffin Lounge, and whaddya know? It's serving evening food and beverages.
So, this picture of Saint Arnold Lawnmower, BBQ slider and Quesadillos....
... marks, so says I, and as a founder TIPPLER I reckon I have the right to call it... The TIPPLE pre-TIPPLE.
Just me.. on my own... Pre-Tippling
Lounge refreshments close down at 10pm so I'll be in the bar fistuk when you arrive. Are you running on time?
I see you, flight UA1151 departing LAS 17:00, arriving IAH 21:58. I will plant myself in the bar at 22:30...
And to help you recognise me, here's a Pre-Tipple selfie...
My real identity is of course a secret, hence I've cunningly altered the picture, you'll recognise me fine when you walk in on your hands!!!
Ahhh nice to see that you got to enjoy the tour of the airport brightlybob after landing, what a nice time and they don't even charge for it anymore!! At least they could serve some beverages before you get to the gate.
Enjoy Galveston! I appreciate the architecture of the new courthouse but the older one is awesomely retro! It is still used as a courthouse
Drive to the Stand if you have time. There is a 3 story building near kempner and strand, kind of across from Murphy's Pub. The design is stunning, and the detail is just fantasic. To me, it is one of the most beautiful and unique structures on that island.
Congrats on your upgrade!
brightlybob used his big USA trip to sprinkle nails all over the runways in America.
Well my work for the day is done, so I'm here in Moonshiners hoping to improve my brainpower with liberal amounts of 8th Wonder IntellectuALE. I feel its working...
Time for intellectuALE thinking.... mmmnnnnng... urmmmmm... nnnnnnng:
bejacob is County collecting
JCool is being delayed
IAHFLYR is driving
and brightlybob wants to get lai.....
Um, no, that's not very intellectual... let's try another pint...
Ooh yes, now that's got the creative juices flowing...
Insiders are all a-travelling
Coming from near and from far
All converging at Marriott's JW
By flying, by train and by car
Now these Insiders are hungry & thirsty
But on Friday the lounge is closed down
So unless a saviour steps forward
Insiders will be hungry, thirsty and frown
So step forward the man of the moment
This needs a Spirit to serve and of course
Bob with some Brit snacks, to work
So let's meet up in the lounge now Insiders
Tonight betwixt 5 and 7
For the honesty bar will be open
And Bob is serving bits of Brit heaven
Ever wanted to taste classic Brit barsnacks
Like Smiths Bacon or scampi fries
Digestive biscuits or jammy dodgers
All are here for all y'all delights
So gather round now all you Insiders
In the lounge at JW Downtown
There'll be no hunger or thirst here
And with the company no need to feel down
Yes, wow that intellectuALE really works!
See you in the lounge on the 11th floor between 5-7, when the JW has promised to open the honesty bar, and I'm providing tastes of Britain - yum! And after that we'll be dowin at the JW bar on the ground floor...
Hi brightlybob, sounds like you are in very good form. Hope you all have a great time.
Update: lady next to me is going somewhere else, mentioned another flat tire delay. Sounds like my theory about brightlybob might be correct. Lol.
At my gate now, just a waiting game.
