Birthday Lunch Out With The Boys.

Before I go into lunch details — I’ve been meaning to talk money. As in the Exchange Rate.

Here is what my dollar is worth to the Euro:

1.00 EUR


1.45741 USD

Euro   United States Dollars
1 EUR = 1.45741 USD   1 USD = 0.686150 EUR

Here is that my dollar is worth to the Pound:

1.00 GBP


1.59299 USD

United Kingdom Pounds   United States Dollars
1 GBP = 1.59299 USD   1 USD = 0.627750 GBP

And my British friends have been complaining about how close the Euro and the Pound are in worth — the Pound used to have a premium::

1.00 EUR


0.914887 GBP

Euro   United Kingdom Pounds
1 EUR = 0.914887 GBP   1 GBP = 1.09303 EUR

As for me — it is one of the best exchange rates for the Dollar/Pound and the worst for the Dollar/Euro. Thank goodness my I’ve got free lodging and only one intra-Europe flight to pay for.

Now as for that stunning birthday lunch, it was at Tanners Restaurant.

Three birthday boys, one whose birthday it is today (Nigel). Mine was Monday, Mark’s is next week.

And what a birthday lunch — the prix fix menu I chose was the mackerel salad for a starter and the plaice for the main — and I was so stuffed that I declined the dessert (or pudding as they say here). A couple of nice bottles of white and I was ready for a nap!

Tonight we are having the chicken roasted with some other sides, but with the huge lunch I’m less than hungry — no clubbing for me tonight.

Back to Dublin tomorrow afternoon.
