RIP Dan "The Mailman" Harris

For anyone who may have him as their mailman, or like me, knew him as a regular at Downing's Bar - I wanted to pass on the sad news of the passing of Dan Harris, aka Dan The Mailman. An Irish Wake will be held for Dan at Downing's (431 South Milwaukee Ave - in between Jiffy Lube and The Liberty diner) this Sunday at 4pm. According to the Downing's Facebook page - "There will be free rum and cokes as well as free hot dogs. So please come and help us celebrate, share stories about the one and only Dan The Mailman. P.S. If you wanna bring a dish to pass that is cool too! Hope to see you there!"
