Supposedly the original Southside St. Patrick's Day parade, that was held on 79th Street came from the patrons at Hanley's. Supposedly many of them decided, very late the night before, to go out and paint the stipe in the middle of the street green. They paraded, hungover, the next day, and the rest is history.
This may be apocryphal, but I heard it from several people when Hanley's was still
