The protagonist of James Joyce's Finnegans Wake was brought back to life after whiskey was spilled on his corpse, and Tim Finnegan's Irish Restaurant & Pub shares its name with the book's central character. There's no magic whiskey here, but there are plenty of life-enriching pints of Guinness and snifters of Jameson to go around. Overhead, a soundtrack of The Pogues and other Irish bands brings an aural taste of Ireland to the Southwest, accompanying the bartender as he speaks with a thick Irish accent while stomping across the wooden floor. The pub is a good place to view both types of football: New York Jets paraphernalia hangs next to soccer jerseys on the walls. With a full menu of Irish favorites and brews on draft, you're sure to leave satisfied in Emerald Isle fashion.
