March 16th, 2011: Casey’s Irish Pub

WEDNESDAY, March 16th, 2011 

Casey’s Irish Pub
613 South Grand Ave.
Los Angeles, CA 90017

What can be said about a country that hasn’t produced anything? To be fair, western civilization might have been saved when the Germans went on their original war holiday through Italy and Gaul. A more modern scribe gave us a great story about a dedalus and a treatise on gibberish. There is also a famous band that, you too might know, although I still haven’t found the name I am looking for. These minor things aside, Ireland has only produced one thing: Irish. They stick to what they do best.

This week, the World Dive Bar Tour pays its annual tribute to Saint Patrick. We shall drink their beer. We shall sing of Ire. We shall stare at the corned beef. We shall be Irish.

On Thursday.

But the WDBT only works on Wednesday (and one Saturday a year), so, we will be raising a pint a day early at Casey’s Irish Pub in Downtown. Our stop, sits under the sidewalk of Grand Avenue. Down the stairs and through the doors lies a warm, wood paneled lair of the familiar. Sneak in an extra day of Irish this year, pull up a chair, have a sip of Guinness and tell a story.

As usual, the casual debauchery starts around 9PM and gets really interesting by 10:00. Come for one drink, or stay for one too many. Bring anyone and everyone, and join us for a great time in the middle of the week. If you arrive early or late, look for the people having a damn good time (it’ll be us), or start having a damn good time on your own we’ll find you.

Is fearr de thú Guinness,

Carpe Drink’em,

This stop is one of a three part Underground Series. Casey’s is literally underground but we will be a be more metaphorical in the weeks ahead. On March 30th, we will be going to a seafood restaurant that only serves beer, veggies and peanuts. And, it is not to be found on internet(s). It might be a Central American gay bar; we’re just not sure.

The World Dive Bar Tour is your bi- weekly, Wednesday night stop for adventure, drinks, and professional networking in Los Angeles. 2012 will offer an eclectic lineup of seedy and swanky joints to soften your liver and relax your inhibitions, and an in-your-face assortment of auxiliary events, just in case 25 different bars in one year wasn't enough.
