A Friday in London: Neild takes over @GlobalPost

GlobalPost's @Barry_Neild deserves a reward for all the fascinating London tidbits he packed into Friday's Twitter feed pub crawl. Give that man a beer! Or — maybe something else.

GlobalPost's Twitter feed is showcasing the voices and personal experiences of our correspondents based around the world. In a project called "A Friday In ...," a different correspondent based internationally is taking over the @GlobalPost account and tweeting about his or her travels and daily activities.

This week, our UK correspondent, Barry Neild, took over the feed from London, where he live-tweeted a pub crawl exploring the city's best places for a pint. He also met a poodle named Dolly, managed a relative-of-a-celebrity sighting, and educated eager readers about the problem of binge drinking in the UK.

Was this Twitter pub crawl anything less than epic? You be the judge. See his tweets below.
