    With a broken leg I crutched into Irish Pub 8 years ago. I knew no one, a flatlander looking for a beer and conversation. Danny would never let me sit alone very long. He would come to me with a big smile and a few body punches to make sure I was comfortable and I fit in. I didn't have to be a regular, a big personality, or cool. I knew Danny Capone and that was good enough for everyone. I will miss him.
