Yeah, you gotta go out on St. Patty's for at least one pint! The Blarneystone is pretty cool, I've been there a couple times - it's in Gastown.

Shit when I saw St. Patty's day for some reason I thought it was on Feb.17th and thought "fuck I missed it!"... now I can breathe a sigh of relief and wait a month.

Dentry's Irish Grill
4450 West 10th (at Sasamat, very close to UBC campus)

I don't know good Guinness from bad Guinness, but I liked the Guinness they had there :D

Don't forget the parade is on the following Sunday along Granville Street downtown.

Haha, yeah but if you want to get IN to the Blarney Stone on St. Patty's day - you'll have to show up at like 11:00am. :laughing I haven't been there in a few years now, but that's what it use to be like back in the day.

Although 11:00am shouldn't be a problem if you've got the day off work. But let's face it, if you're looking forward to drinking at 11:00am on a weekday, your employment situation probably isn't too stellar to begin with. :p

But to answer your first question...there are a lot of Irish Pubs (or Irish Pub wannabes) in Vancouver, so you can take your pick. Personally, I love going to those types of places year 'round...because they've always got ME on tap. (HARP Lagar) :D

Maybe you didn't get in because you aren't very Irish looking...

:coffee j/k

Cos, they love me so much the whole drunken lot of 'em got together and named a fuckin beer after me! :drinkbeer

I use to go there all the time though...my friend's dad's band was the house band (Killarney? Are they still the house band?) so I always use to go in with her....but oddly enough, whenever I wasn't there with an Irish girl, I never felt quite as "accepted".

...so you might be on to something. ;)

I think we could make you an honourary Irishman due to the amount of beer you've consumed.

I use the term we loosely. I have way more Scot in me than Irish.

Any holiday that you're supposed to go drink beer on is worth celebrating. Bimini's had a good St.Patty's celebration last year. This year going to Malone's downtown to listen to a friend sing Irish drinking songs. :drinkbeer
