I have a couple of spare days (nights) in Beirut coming up - any tips on where to go, what to do?

Drinks in Gamayze (I love Tornio Express) or on Rue Monot (The Greedy Goose is good).

Food is pretty good all over - in Gamayze check out Petit Cafe for dead cheap traditional lunch or Olio Pizza. All round Monot are good restaurants..

Walk around Martyrs Square and Downtown area.

If you have time in the day walk along the Corniche, see Pigeon Rocks and through Hamra etc.

If you get out of the city - Jeita Grottos and Byblos are good to visit.

Celtic Pub, Monot Street is a great little watering hole, was there on St Pat's night. Some good bars just round the corner from here as well, with live music and a terrific atmosphere.

If you are down on the Corniche, it's a short walk up the American uni, which is a nice place to stroll around and walk off your hangover.

Isn't it supposed to be the most accessible among the female species of the Arab world?

Working, as I do, with several Lebanese women I should be able to give you a first hand account, but sadly, I no longer have the physique of an Adonis, or the good looks of Brad Pitt. One of them does however, flirt with me quite openly, although I can't work out if it is physical attraction or she's just a career girl trying to advance up the ladder.
