With that in mind, my choice would be Mark Twain.

Make sure the beer hasn't been watered down or he'll turn it into wine.

Richard III - wouldn't be beer, more likely a stoup of sack, but I'd dearly love to know if he really did bump off his nephews in The Tower.

Robert Johnson - again, it wouldn't be beer, but probably a bottle of bourbon. I'd just like to watch him play guitar.....I know what he sounded like, but I would just like to watch him do it.

Only after he and Stan had to drag it up a long flight of steps. Might be time for a beer instead of tea then. At least Mozart would be less likely to smash the thing up.

Adam and Eve (as in the first homo-sapient)
King Tut
Henry VIII
Elizabeth I


DaVinci
Einstein
Newton
Hawkins

What meeting of minds to observe

John
Paul
George
Ringo

Price concert

Jack
Then I'd know who he was

Numerous departed family and friends

Paternal grandparents who I never knew
Maternal grandparents who I knew and adored
My two best mates who were killed when an ambulance hit the car they were in
My great grandmother who I had till I was 14 (just for one last hug)

My great Aunty who suffered with CP, couldn't walk, barely talk, but a wicked sense of humour and most of all because she loved a beer and it would let her have one last one.

Plus Liszt rhymes with what everyone may become with all that beer flowing so freely.

Hello Abby,

You probably wouldn't have any trouble getting a table. Now the big question - would you pick up the tab or wait till he makes a gesture to pay?
