Irish Pub ’09
Deliver us from theme park-style bars. An Irish pub should be what an Irish pub is: a friendly neighborhood gathering place. Molly Malone’s in Covington has the atmosphere down. Couples gather at the bar, knots of friends huddle around the bar tables, and the burble of conversation is constant. (Plus, there’s football—the European kind—on the TV.) There’s also a bluegrass jam on Monday nights, pub quiz trivia on Wednesdays, and Texas hold ’em on Tuesdays. How’s that for crossing the pond?
