Surely that's an untestable hypothesis, though?

Totally untestable, but it seems to be pretty axiomatic that the quality of Guinness deteriorates the further away from the Guinness brewery you get."
Aren't Aidan and Liam the most popular names for boys in America right now?
...not all the Irish pubs in the US are part of this company, are they? Particularly in well-fortified Irish zones like Boston - some of those are at least independent, right?
Well, I have ben thinking about a bunch of Saw Doctors shows I went to in the 90s in Boston, and I think that most of the places I saw them are gone or different now. Tramp's in New York (which admittedly wasn't Oirish-themed) is long gone, and the Irish Embassy in Boston -- where I saw three shows in a row in like 1997 -- looks to have been prettified since then.
But there were neighborhood bars with a sort of Irish them in Boston before then, like the Kells in Allston/Brighton and the very good Plough & Stars in Cambridge.
