then you must have been to my favorite pub in the world: http://www.irishlion.com/
I haven't had time the past few years, but i used to go home just to celebrate my birthday with friends there each year. The huge wood bar was brought over on a boat from Ireland in 1860 and it still looks beautiful. One of the few places I've seen yard glasses.
The owner was always a bit drunk - he was also my landlord one year during college...my best friend Matt and i lived in one of his boarding houses. There was a door in the middle of the house that went down to this dirt basement but there were no stairs. He would raid the house periodically to make sure that everyone was keeping the common areas clean (which of course no one did). Our Chinese neighbors, Wei and Won, made rice everynight in this huge wok and would leave it in the sink until the roaches would swarm over it. One Saturday he came over to fix the front door and saw the mess. Matt and I hid as soon as we heard the ruckus start...he took every single pot,pan,dish,cup, fork that was in the kitchen, opened the door to the 'basement' and threw everything in - there was nothing left! Then he sat out in the yard and drank a few beers. We were rolling on the floor laughing for hours...until we realized we had nothing to cook our rice and beans in for dinner that night
It is in truth not for glory, nor riches, nor honors the we are fighting, but for freedom -for that alone, which no honest man gives up but with his life....."
