    (well, not that old but still crotchety) columnist, Stanton Delaplane, who's credited with bringing the Irish Coffee to these shores, by challenging the bartender at the Buena Vista Cafe (at the Hyde Street cable car turnaround) to recreate it after Delaplane came back from a trip to Ireland. Have heard though that the traditional glass is in short supply, so not sure what they're using now -- you can still get one there anytime of day -- the BV does a pretty good breakfast.
