richard's poor almanack by richard thompson handy guide to irish pubs miserable - a fine establishment tommy o'spleen's tommy o'spleen's. a three-story pub offering a differ-ent fight on each floor: religion on the first, politics on the second, sports & general interest on the third. tuesday is lady's nite. the maudlin banshee - enjoy the music of the garrulous drones quartet (daily, noon till closing) in authen-tic irish ambience, including a newly-installed peat bog. they serve only bud-weiser. no shamrocks the maudlin banshee irish pub megans megapub megan's megapub - with a parking lot the size of county cork, megan's offers 5,723 beers on tap, in-cluding old balrog depleted uranium stout. bleariagh na-mnag-hriaebhngniocht's - the guinness on tap is as warm & sluggish as lava, there are tiny pebbles in the soda bread & the bartend-er hates you on sight, with a passion that time will not diminish. other-wise, it's ok.
