First, a disclaimer: this isn't an endorsement of any kind, merely a re-telling of facts that supposedly are based on data gleaned from the cell phone GPS search queries of Chicagoans last St. Patrick's Day. And numbers, as they say, don't lie. Unless you invested with Bernie Madoff. Or lost your life savings at Enron. Or won the 2000 U.S. presidential election but weren't allowed to be president.

And while we aren't denying the accuracy of the following numbers, we have no way of independently verifying them. With that in mind, and if you're still wondering where to camp out for this year's Gallic festivities Skobbler -- creators of the iPhone app GPS Navigation 2 -- say they've devised this list of the top 5 most popular spots to wet your whistle in Chicago based on 2012 searches.

Here they are, in order of popularity:

1. Mrs. Murphy & Sons Irish Bistro - 3905 N Lincoln Ave
2. Emmitt's Irish Pub - 495 N Milwaukee Ave
3. Butch McGuire's - 20 W Division St
4. The Irish Oak - 3511 N Clark St
5. Lizzie McNeill's - 400 N McClurg Ct
