There's a slight chance that the Buena Vista, alleged birthplace of the Irish coffee, may be taking their claim to fame a bit far: "Buena Vista Cafe will be creating the world's largest Irish Coffee to share with its patrons. Towering more than 3 feet from the bar and holding more than 15 gallons, bartenders will be going after the Guinness World Record crafting a giant Irish Coffee that everyone in attendance will get to sample. The unveiling of the world's largest Irish Coffee will take place at Buena Vista Cafe on Nov 10 at 1 pm." [SFE, photo]
