Meet the Mayor: J.J. Foley's Bar & Grille

Welcome to "Meet the Mayor," a segment in which we interview local Foursquare Mayors in their natural habitats.

J.J. Foley's Bar & Grille
Myron Belfast

What do you usually order here?
Well, this is my new choice. "The Champagne of Beers." It used to be Newcastle. And before that it was ... shit ... oh, yeah, Magners. I used to drink a ton of Magners here. I think that was my first drink when I became a regular here. Then it became Newcastle. Then it was High Life. It was a step up, and then a step down - a gigantic leap down.

Why take the leap down?
Well, High Life is the champagne. It's the high life. The thing I reach for. The gold standard.

It's weasel piss with alcohol in it.
At least it's not Genuine Draft. Also, their freezers are broken. So all they do is stick ice inside there, so the High Life is icy-cold. All the bottled beers are cold as ice over here, so they're going to taste fantastic.

If the original J.J. Foley was here, what would you say to him?
"Can I have another?" And I'll say it again ... and again ... and again ...
