Stanley’s Bar, Brooklyn, New York

I was drinking at Old Stanley’s Bar in Brooklyn, NY, with friends when someone in my group pointed out this sign (above) that was displayed behind the bar.

A debate ensued with another Irish group who were there and I was told that this was the ‘norm’ in NY bars. I spent two Summers living in NY and never saw anything quite like it.

I’d like to hear other Irish people’s opinion on this.

(btw this was not an Irish bar)
