The then owner of The Londoner in Addison and now of the new place in the State-Thomas area was explaining the difference between British pubs and Irish pubs. Clearly Americans don't quite get some of the nuances of St. Patrick's Day, at least. It's doubtful you will see protestants decked in orange today).
