The Irish Bank on Boxing Day

Time seems to stand still during the week between Christmas and New Year. I really enjoy it. The city is both busy with visitors and shoppers and quiet with the absence of locals who are away for the Holidays. After a long walk around downtown, I spent the afternoon of Boxing Day at The Irish Bank -- a wonderful, cozy pub with good Hibernian food for a good price. I watched soccer with the pub locals, listened to the terrific jukebox and ate homey shepherd's pie and ale. This place makes me feel like a hobbit in The Shire. Find it tucked away on Mark Lane off Bush Street just east of the Chinatown Gate.
