It’s been said that you can learn a lot about a person by studying those they call “friends.” I say you will learn even more by studying where they go to honor St. Patrick. So-called "authentic" Irish pubs want you to believe that these places are decorated with glossy, varnished bars, shamrock bric-a-brac, and plasma screens. One trip to the land of Éire would quickly clear up this misconception…or you could just visit Irish Times with the World Dive Bar Tour this week.

While all the amateurs are nursing hangovers and oxycleaning the vomit out of their clothes, the Tour is hitting up the only dive-worthy, authentic Irish pub in town. Capturing the ambiance of a quiet, Dublin watering hole, Irish Times offers Guinness on tap served by an acid-tongued Irish bartender (she’s really from Ireland, folks) in a dark , cozy space, where the pint is truly mightier than the game on TV. But, should you need additional entertainment, Irish Times provides some dive bar essentials like Golden Tee golf, 75 cent pool tables, and a juke box full of the best rock n’ roll.

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).

Carpe Drink’em,

Curtis, host

for the World Dive Bar Tour Executive Committee

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.
