The Guinness Storehouse was my first stop in Dublin. The museum interior is shaped like a seven story pint glass, and upon reaching the top of the glass I arrived at the Gravity Bar. There, one redeems their ticket stub for a pint. Helluva trade. After making quick work of the stout it was time to go back to the gates where the BEQ shirt was revealed to the masses. Some cheered. Some cried. Some wielded farm implements. But all agreed that it was better than Cromwell running rip-shod through their country again.
Afterward, I was off to Doheny & Nesbitt Pub in St. Stephen's Green for a pint of Bulmers Cider and BEQ Crossword #251. Time very, very well spent
I'm sure that more than a few people in Dublin know at least one "Brendan Quigley," which is probably the reason for the cheering, crying, and farm implement wielding. We're a weird breed. Anyway, for this display of sheer madness, Spencer gets a copy of "Diagramless." Get yours in the store to your right. Or ... you can win one with the latest contest.
CONTEST RULES: Simple enough. Solve the puzzle whose theme spells out a riddle. Send me the answer to that riddle by e-mail, Facebook, Twitter, Buzz, or ... however else you want to send in your entry. I encourage creativity, nay, I reward it. Recall with my last contest, I started a new trend where I awarded a prize for the most creative entry, and believe me there were some creative ones. I have no doubt you shall one-up yourselves.
So, get me your entries by the end of the day on Wednesday August 25. Prizes will be awarded to one randomly selected entrant who guesses the riddle correctly, and one to the most creative contest entry. Winners get whatever they want from the BEQ gift shoppe, or something I don't want anymore from BEQ.com HQ. I will announce the winners next Thursday.
Good luck. Share the puzzle. New one on Monday.
