Danny Boy Whiskey’s USA Launch at Foley’s
Foley’s will welcome the US launch of Danny Boy Whiskey today, March 1, 2010. This time, Foley’s promises no gimmicks: “No banning songs, No rewriting lyrics. OK, maybe one more gimmick:” If your name is Dan/Danny/Daniel/Danielle, stop in for a free Danny Boy Sandwich and a shot of Danny Boy Whiskey.
If your name is not one of those forms of Dan, you can still try it anyway, of course. Be one of the first in the nation to try this premium blend Irish whiskey.
