These are three in a multiethnic series surely meant to drum up future business for the neighborhood — even if the tagline, "It's all under the bridge," suggests that bygones are already bygones. Others in the series include "visit" and "play."
"Socialize" sets the silhouette of a woman against the Mexican bandera; "eat" features a man and the flag of Ecuador. "Drink," awkwardly, depicts the Irish tricolor and a woman who, at least in outline, looks rather frumpy. It so happens, though, that the slogans, the silhouettes, and the national colors can be mixed and matched, as I saw from a number of other banners nearby. My sighting of an Irish lass, coupled with the implicit lure of a Guinness, was only a coincidence.
