Ireland Trip #72: FINAL BLOG: PantiBar, Stinky Air, Superhero Pilot

This is it! The last blog of our 9 day Ireland trip and it only took 73 blogs to share it with you. In this blog you'll hear about PantiBar, Stinky air and a super-pilot.

PANTIBAR- Pantibar is a gay bar owned by Ireland's famous drag queen "Panti Bliss" that we got to meet. It's billed as a "Fun joint that bills itself as a homo activity centre with entertainment every night of the week." and it's located at 7 1, 8 Capel St, Dublin 1, Ireland. We decided that on our last night we'd go sit there with a drink after dinner - a good way to end the trip, since that was the first place we visited when we arrived.
STINKY AIR AND TOM'S QUOTE OF THE WEEK - Just after boarding the Boston to Baltimore flight, someone farted!!  It was really nasty, too. So, I (Rob) took out scented hand cleaner that I brought with me and told Tom to smell that instead. He agreed and said  "Well, at least it doesn't smell like someone's ass!"

Brandon Routh: Atom (L), Superman (R)
SUPERHERO PILOT - Our flight on Aer Lingus was wonderful, especially since we upgraded to business class. We will always do that. Between the extra room, snacks, drinks, blanket and attention it was awesome. What really made it great was when the pilot came on the intercom and said that his name is Brandon Routh.  It just happens to be the same name as the actor that played Superman in Superman Returns and plays the Atom in the Arrow TV Show on the CW network. Nothing like flying home with a superhero!

We hope you enjoyed reading our adventures in Ireland, and now maybe have been inspired to visit yourself. Thanks for reading!  Rob and Tom 

Gift/Memorial Suggestions

Several of our friends have lost loved ones (human and pets) and we found that one of the best ways to honor their memory is to give to an animal charity.
What better way to recognize a life of love, than by giving another life a chance for love?
We donate to many animal rescues, but because we volunteer with
DC Weimaraner Rescue and Coast-to-Coast Dachshund Rescue, those are our 2 favorites.
Consider giving the chance of life to a dog or cat.
