Re: “Picking up the Torch: The Red Lantern Version 2.0 Will Keep You Coming Back to West Park

Well maybe it's overun with Irish sports bars, but how do you know they're Catholic, and why even make such an absurd statement? Are you required to be Catholic to gain entrance to these bars? The fact that there has long been a large Irish Catholic percentage of residents in West Park is fact. But being one myself and an over thirty year residident of the neighborhood, I can plainly state that no bar in West Park has ever required being either Irish or Catholic a requirement for serving or welcoming one into their establishments. The Irish themed bars are just that, they were opened using that concept with the intent of attracting the large Irish population into their establishments. Many current and former neighborhood residents of Irish descent do in fact frequent these bars and shockingly to no one, they know each other as many grew up, live in, and attended school and the Catholic churches in the neighborhood. But there are also plenty of other nationalities and religious affiliations well represented as they also grew up in the neighborhood and attended school and church in the neighborhood they lived in, just like any metropolitan area in the World. I was born at Fairview Hospital, not a Catholic hospital by the way, lived over forty years of my life in the neighborhood, and surprisingly never saw a single bar attend Catholic church on a Sunday, so I guess they must be Protestant?
