Cooper’s, A Great Pub

8th Ave, betw. 18th-19th. 28 beers, cider on tap. Good food, ambience. Run by 3 Irish guys. Before leaving, bartender Barry made me a great Irish Coffee and informed me that this drink originated in Ireland after WWII and was not invented in San Francisco at the Buena Vista Cafe by Stanton Delaplane in the ’50s, as SF lore would have it.
This panorama is a bit skewed.
