I'm looking for a lively bar to go to for St. Patrick's Day - any suggestions?

    It's been many years since I went into the city for St. Patty's but if things are anything like they used to be pretty much every Irish themed bar is lively from opening to close - packed to the gills would be a more apt description. If you want to sit and don't like waiting in line go early - before lunch starts. Also, don't expect anything beyond hastily poured beer in a plastic cup. No one is taking the time to pour a nice pint. That said, it can be a lot of fun if you're in the mood for that sort of thing.

      Doyle's in JP, go early (10am) Lots of local politicians and it's authentic as it gets.

      Great way to start the day right.
