Regarding a rush to celebrate at the Royal Mile: I wish the new owners all-the-best and hope they continue with the Scottish traditions, great food, fine beverages, and terrific music. However, I will celebrate only when it is known that the staff, which went home at Christmas without salary, has been compensated. Doors closed in December with multiple thousands being owed to workers/friends. I speak as an authority, having helped pay some of the final salaries. The RM owes me nearly $4K.

I would vote for a Pub Crawl between the Royal Mile Pub and the Limerick Pub. That's the way to go! Support your local Irish watering holes!

I've been going to RMP since it first opened. They have really pushed the resturant thing more than the pub thing in recent years. Don't really blame them if thats what they have to do but the better place just to hang these days is Limrick. Limrick always has something going on and is drinker friendly. RMP needs to step its game up now that they have some competion.

Colm and family are from Cort Town, where I honeymooned. McGinty's rocks.

Bubba is right - save RM for haggis day, support the Saint of Snake-exiling at The Limerick!
