    Trivia on Mondays is a lot of fun however the questions are definitely geared towards those born in the 70s and 80s. Cheap beer on tap for only $5 starting at 7:00 PM!

    Don't expect much food if you order their fruit parfait (it's very small, not worth it).

    $25 brunch is actually a really good deal when it's a $13 entree (like lamb hash) plus bottomless bloody marys for a big-time morning soccer game. Would have drank $25 in beer anyway.

    Go when "That Guy Mike" and his band are playing! It's like a reunion of all your favorite songs from college in a big dance party! Drinks wise, it's your typical Irish pub.

    You must try the 'Fado Jameson and Ginger.' It's delicious! Has a kick from the spice of the ginger beer and if you're a whiskey fan- it's the perfect combo.

    "Gaelic Pub" is probably a better title for this establishment as it is a higher caliber and arguably more "Irish" pub than any other Irish bar in DC sporting the genre. A fantastic, euro-feel place
