I know of another genuine Irish pub. It's where me and Mark Jones used to
meet up in his East End neighborhood. The first time I went in there I took
a seat at the bar and ordered a tall one. I noticed a sack next to me on
the floor that I thought somebody had forgotten. As I reached down to give
it to the bartender, a guy from a nearby table said, "Oh, that's mine.
Don't worry about that. It's not a bomb," followed by a beery laugh.
