I remember, many years ago again, when there was a little quiz in our local, it was either the Shamrock, Pacific, Gents, North Star et al. The idea was that you started off at Duke Street and walked down to Woodside Ferry without passing a Pub
. Anyway, the best drinking minds in the area were put to this quest and there were wonderful ways of doing it until you got nearer to Woodside, which at the time was well surrounded with ale houses. In the end it was deemed impossible and the quiz master then laughed his head off and said that you didn't pass any pubs, you called in to each one. Such things the amber liquid makes entertaining.
