Cead Mile Failte

Have you ever longed to step into an Escher drawing, where the laws of physical reality become topsy-turvy, and, like Alice, find yourself in a world of inside-out and upside-down?  Well, now you can.  In a bar better known as the Irish Times, you can seat yourself in the midst of criss-crossing stairs and balconies that twist themselves about in strange angles worthy of that crazy scene from the Labyrinth.  In fact, with its old-time manor atmosphere, you half-expect to find David Bowie singing to you from over the railing.

The lower-level of the bar looks like the corner-slice from a castle cake.  Our only guess is that the same giants who moved Stone Henge must have stolen a turret from some European castle and plopped it right on the corner of 2nd and Bainbridge.  From the grey stone and warm red brick of the walls, to the fireplace burning invitingly below, no sight could be merrier to eyes sore from the freezing blasts of winter.

Aside from castle-like atmosphere, the Irish Times also provides a little bit o’ luck. Enter your email address on their website for a chance to win $50 gift certificates.  But even if the lucky leprechaun isn’t on your side, you can still enjoy some delicious drafts and whiskeys.

Irish Times offers the “burbonites” plenty of Irish whiskey- from Tullamore Dew to Midleton.  Draft selection is a common lineup; featuring Stella Artois, Blue Moon, and Guinness.  But beyond the tap lies a more extensive bottled beer selection. Choices of Chimay Red, Blue, and White label should leave beer lovers appreciative of this unusal find beyond the doors of the Foodery and other take-out beer stops.

For anyone possessed with a bit of the Celtic Spirit, or who just enjoys a bit of off-the-wall fun, we highly recommend the Irish Times as a rest-stop to warm your bones and cheer your heart.  Tuesday nights are of particular interest, as local talent and fun-seekers gather together for open-mic night.  Not to mention live Irish music sessions every Thursday night.

The pipes, the pipes are calling, so get ye down to the Irish Times, before we drink up all the beer.
