Let's hear it for the albino python

Last city of the trip: New York, achieved with only a few confusions. the train ride down from Boston was splendid and filled with views and our arrival at the W (my spiritual home) was marred only by discovering that I'd booked the second night at a *different* New York W (we're in Union Square, I booked the Lexington one through Virgin). The checkin staff have been awesomely helpful and friendly: it makes me want to twitter to say how good they are. We found a Maoz on Union Square for dinner last night and tonight, after a looong and fascinating day learning things about Office 2010 we can't tell you until the middle of November we wandered out to find dinner. Around Union Square and down University and amid the sprinkle of neighbourhood restaurants we settled on Jacks - and it serves a delicious local brew: Coney Island Albino Python. white beer with spices: maybe coriander or orange peel? Very fragrant!
