Washington, Mar 18 (ANI): US lawmakers of Irish origin would be off quaffing Guinness and downing bangers and mash on St. Patrick's Day.
Senator Claire McCaskill can't stop raving about the only place she sees fit to have a real Irish breakfast on St. Patrick's Day.
Browne's Market in Kansas City is "not really a bar, but a neighborhood market and deli gathering spot that's very Irish and wonderful," Politico quoted McCaskill, as saying.
Senator Jim McDermott said: "I know my ancestors had a drink there approximately 200 years ago, before they came to the US in the famine," McDermott said.
Irish congressman Michael McCaul has been known to enjoy the corned beef and cabbage at The Dubliner on Capitol Hill, which is undoubtedly overrun today with revellers.
"The Tipperary Pub in Detroit. It wasn't a dive. It was very high-class for an Irish pub in Detroit. The glasses were clean," Republican Thaddeus McCotter said.
Although McCotter is 75 percent Irish, the locale has sentimental value for other reasons as well.
"It was there I knew I would marry my wife," McCotter said. His first date with his wife was at the Tipperary, and McCotter even used to play guitar there from time to time.
Senator Jim McGovern loves a dish named after himself - "McGovern's" boneless pork chops and stuffing is available at O'Connor's Restaurant and Bar in Worcester, Mass., a favourite locale of his since it opened years ago. (ANI)
