A festive crowd filled Morrison’s Irish Pub July 24 for its opening day. The patrons enjoyed Irish drinks served by co-owners Mary Alyce Vankirk and Lisa Morrison, Irish food from cook George Thayer and Irish music by Wild Geese. Located at 200 State St. in Alton, the pub is directly across from Ardent Mills. The newest addition to the downtown area has proven so popular it had to close last Tuesday to prepare for deliveries, as the pub ran out of food and supplies because of high demand. The bar is back open for business; call (618) 433-8900 for information.
