Great Al, see you next time I pass by Medellin. Sham Rock on:photog:tb

Shit. Now I have to ride back. Did the Parrilla turn into an Irish Pub with Argentinian meat?
I'm headed north in a couple of weeks amigo. Should be back your way in a few months.

Awesome. Planning a trip to Medellin in January (flying from Panama). I'll come see ya!

Any suggestions on hotels near your pub would be great. Gracias!

Fish and Chips? You got fish and chips there? Are they as good as what you had at The Turtles Head? And why did you pick such a non-scatological name?

I dont understand the name. I know what a turtles head and a barking spider are, but shamrock, I'm not so sure. :scratch :lol3

Do we get kicked out if we fall off the stool and throw up on the floor? :rofl :freaky

Good deal.

I'll be looking for new and different beers sometime in the early part of next year and will be sure to swing by and check it out:freaky

Hey Al...great meeting and hanging out with you! :freaky

I enjoyed my stay at the at the Shamrock....thanks! Guys, he's not lying about the hot chicks! Let's just say he was clearly very selective in his hiring practices! :toney

Steak sounds good, as does a good burger and fries. That is, when I get tired of scarfing down delicious deep fried artery clogging empanadas!!

Getting my house ready to sell now. Also checking on shipping companies to ship my bike from Houston to Medellin. Hope to be dodging Colombian cagers by April, if not sooner.

Will stop by for some grub and Aguardiente! :dg

Must of just killed a scotsman like you to open an Irish pub. :rofl

Went on a trip to Germany to ride around. Planning a sailing trip from Finland this summer. Still have that Freewind in Ecuador. I'll have to go back, sell it and upgrade to KTM in Colombia.


Scotsman moves to Canada

and attends his first baseball game.

The first batter approaches the batters' box,

takes a few swings and then hits a double.

Everyone is on their feet screaming


The next batter hits a single.

The Scotsman listens as the crowd again cheers

"RUN!! RUN!!"

The Scotsman is enjoying the game

and begins screaming with the fans.

The fifth batter comes up and four balls go by.

The Umpire calls: "Walk."

The batter starts his slow trot to first base.

The Scot stands up and screams,

"Run ye lazy bastard rrrun!"

The people around him begin laughing.

Embarrassed, the Scot sits back down.

A friendly fan notes the man's embarrassment,

leans over and explains,

"He can't run -- he has four balls."

The Scot stands up and screams:

"Walk with pride, Laddie!"
