The Dubliner on Saturday, September 20th.
We had some pretty good luck when we hit up the North Valley a few weeks ago at Joe’s Grotto, so we thought we’d check out another neighborhood fave, The Dubliner, on Saturday, September 20. It was just a typical night at the Irish pub, filled with beers, darts, and greasy, yummy potato skins.
But nothing is so simple in the North Valley. The area has always had a healthy seasoning of crazy. Case in point: the toothless man who serenaded us a cappella as we smoked on the front sidewalk. Sounds like a nightmare? Well, yes, it was. But, really, it beats the hell out of staring at the incessantly beautiful (and boring) people at a regular club. Yep, we’ll take the toothless any day, if it makes for a good anecdote.
