I like Irish pubs.
I don't drink anything stronger than Diet Pepsi, but I'm an Irish guy -- and an Irish Fest volunteer -- and I like Irish pubs, even the Irish-American variety.
Maybe I'm getting old, but it sure seems that people had better manners in times gone by.
My family didn't have a lot of money, but my parents always insisted that we dress appropriately for church, hold doors for people, and say "please" and "thank you." We also were taught to respect grown-ups and other people in authority. We took our hats off when we entered buildings, and we had to be polite even to people whose opinions differed from ours. I didn't always follow those rules, but if my parents found out about it, I was usually punished or severely scolded.
