The Pub

Not going to be too much of a post today as my company took all IT staff and their partners out to an Irish pub last night. It was O'Donnells on Heinekenplein (I'm unsure if they named the square after the beer or its creator) and I have to say it was Just Another Irish Pub — albeit with bitterballen. Notice how cities around the world aren't guaranteed to have, say, English pubs? Or Dutch pubs? Or Australian? It's always Irish pubs. Why is that?

My pet theory is that the Irish are planning on taking over the world and these are their advance locations.
