Yard of Ale on Thursday

So as you all know, this Thursday is Lá Fhéile Pádraig.  Or maybe you didn't.  Regardless, everyone is encouraged to wear green trinkets and crap at the fields.  But what about the bar?


Turns out Yard of Ale is doing some block party thing.  You can read about it here, but I'll give you the summary:
  • It goes from 6pm - 3am.
  • $5 yards and sangria
  • Live band, karaoke, door prizes
  • Costs $15 or $20, depending on if you have a penis, and they're limiting the number of tickets sold to men.
  • Money raised goes to PAL
Whaaaaat??  That's right... the douchey club that is hosting this event is "allegedly" donating it to PAL, the organization that took thousands of dollars from us each year and then allowed WAKA to monopolize their fields and services.

Johnny is looking into us getting our normal specials... but I give that about a 0% chance of happening this week.  And I probably wouldn't go anyway, due to their choice of charity.

So does anyone want to suggest a backup plan?

I think the dubliner is having 3 bands playing. I usually have a good time there on St Paddys, although it does get crowded there. I know they have a buffet and a 10 dollar cover. Ill probably just get sloushed at the fields then roll home.

Ragin Cajun...? Rick's is close too.

Gaspars.

I hope we don't have to pay to get in, if you wear your shirt you shouldn't have to pay. I mean just cuz our season happens to land on St. Patrick's Day we shouldn't be penalized.

Chandler said...

Yeah but it's hosted by the other group. So I wouldn't be surprised if the bar treats it like renting out their place, and is now out of their hands.

There are other places we can go for one week if that's the case.

MacDinton's?

Fuck going to the Y of A this week. Let them make some new friends for us to oust next Thursday, with our Obscenely Competitive Drunkenness.

Could be a good week to hit up a sports bar for Tournament-style awesomeness...let's atleast find a replacement bar with TV's.

3 words: Davis f-ing Islands. Oh, wait, make that 5 words when you add these 2: Pub crawl. If not those words, then these 3: Wings Gone Wild. So total, including this sentence, that makes 34 words and 7 numbers.

Chandler said...

I'm all about Anchor Bar... and we need to do an Anchor Bar night anyway.

Wings Gone Wild is always good too. It's going to be a mess wherever you go.

Where ever we end up going I got you on the 100 beers I owe you JW...

Alison said...

The Independent on Florida is close too. They have lots of beers and I'm told food now also.

barflett said...

Let's go to the Hub and drink ourselves blind.......

BeardFace said...

If we go Davis Islands, there is the Anchor for basketball, Yeoman's does Thursday nite Karaoke, and liquor around each corner...
cops are usually not an issue here,either.

Oddly, the mexican place is usually packed on St Patty's day...

Red Dog!

landon said...

my buddy pete has a place in south tampa, karaoke, cheap liquour, lots of hot babes....

Chandler said...

Mmmm... Pete's Place is pretty fun.

But the best suggestions I've seen so far are:

Ricks on the River
Independent
Teneille's house (she lives across the street from Taylor fields)

Everything else is a bit of a hike on a night were cops are out. But I can be convinced to do whatever since I'm not working on Friday... again.

Nate Dawg said...

Just got the email from Johnny telling us that we get into YOA for free so that solves that problem...WAY better customer service than WAKA. WAKA league probably has to pay to get into MacD's tomorrow...

Chandler... you know you like how I treat you in MY HOUSE!!! P.S.. You wouldn't make it across the street... I'm up for whatever, but since I haven't seen anyone MAKE UP THEIR MINDS!!! I'm guessing South Tampa it is... I kinda like the idea of Davis Island.. We could take over their one street downtown.. :)
