The third face of Islip, two hour progress shot. Lanny is the bartender at Lily Flanagan’s, in Islip. He’s from Ireland, and he’s a great guy.

My brothers and I have a practice with Lily Flanagan’s. We walk by their window on Main Street, and if Lanny is behind the bar, we enter for a well poured Guinness, a burger, and good conversation. You may call it elitism, but us imbibers of stout with refined pallets must be discerning.
