In the end, Dunn's Pub won the Hamden Patch Reader's Choice as the best place to celebrate St. Patrick's Day, but it wasn't easy -- at points Thursday night, DeMil's was in the lead, barely eaking out Dunn's.
But when the poll closed 9 a.m. Friday morning, it was Dunn's that was on top, beating out DeMil's by nine votes. A total of 202 votes were cast, with Dunn's getting 88, DeMii's getting 79 and the next runner up, the Playwright Irish Pub and Restaurant garnering 27.
