  • We landed in Munich at 7pm and were at the bar by 8:30.

    I wanted a beer. A German beer in Germany - what a thing to tweet.

    All my friends gave one line of advice for the trip: "You must have the beer" - "A beer and a pretzel!" - "It's Munich for god's sake, home of the real Oktoberfest!" "You should always be drinking and drinking beer."

    I slid close to the bar and asked our host, "Ok. Beer. Where do I start?"

    "Oh. Uh. This place is actually known for their cocktails."

    One of the best Manhattan's I've ever had.
