Speaking of McSorley's... there is an ad in today's Post noting that Feb. 17 is McSorley's Day in New York... The 17th would be Sunday, though the ad states "Friday February 17."
In any event! The bar is also celebrating its 159th (or 151st!) anniversary... (Per New York: "Though McSorley’s claims it opened its doors in 1854, NYC historian Richard McDermott used public records to prove it really opened in 1862." Which means Lincoln never set foot in the place.)
Anyway! A flashback to last year's 158th (or 150th!) festivities...
Oh, despite what the ad says, turns out that the celebration is today, Feb. 10.. 11 a.m.-6 p.m.
