    Bites were provided by Lincoln Restaurant, and drinks and bartenders by Irish Whiskey Public House. Both restaurants have brilliantly executed decor, designed by Maggie O'Neill herself. Lincoln is a clever homage to the late president, with a floor tiled with one million pennies and an oversized chair mimicking the memorial, and don't get me started on the cozy feel of IWPH and the old barrels of whiskey on the wall...
