The bar, located in the Embassy Suites (175 10th St E, St. Paul), is throwing a week-long shindig now through Friday, December 12. Guests can try appetizer versions of Scotch eggs and corned beef for only $1, plus Irish drinks, whiskeys, and taps at half price (prices vary, but beers like Guinness and Boddingtons will set you back $2.50). Irish Car Bombs will be $3. Not familiar with the drink? Traditionally it involves a pint of Guinness and a shot glass with Irish crème and whiskey. Drop the shot into the beer, and drink quickly before the pour curdles.
Other events happening throughout the week include a pub trivia night this Wednesday starting at 9 p.m. hosted by Martin Devaney, a free wine tasting Thursday night at 7 p.m., and half-priced Scotch Saturday night from 8 p.m. to 11 p.m.
