McCourts toast McSorley’s

New York University’s Glucksman Ireland House at 1 Washington Mews hosted the 150th anniversary celebration of McSorley’s Old Ale House on Feb. 12. In photo above, at left, from left to right, featured guests included brother authors Frank McCourt and Malachy McCourt and Professor Terence Moran of N.Y.U.’s Steinhardt School of Education. The event also marked the opening of an exhibition of artist Greg de la Haba’s “McSorley Series,” consisting of charcoal and pastel drawings and oil paintings. Above, Matthew Mahr, McSorely’s owner, posed beside a de la Haba charcoal of the interior of McSorley’s. The famed tavern, at 15 E. 7th St., is New York City’s oldest bar in continuous operation.
