Bucks of the Irish

Jerry Callahan lifts his mug to the JFK campaign poster hanging on the wall. It's Irish Import Night at Sullivan's, and the steelworker declares his dedication with a Harp-fueled toast. "John F. Kennedy was the best president this country ever had," he says. "He made us all proud to be Irish." Every Wednesday, the pub slashes a dollar off its $4 glasses of Irish-made drafts — from Guinness to Smithwick's. "I figure, I make so much money in a day that I can afford a few of these after work," says Callahan. "What's the old lady gonna say? She's a Murphy, so she can't argue."
