Tipperary Pub's story begins with four longtime friends pounding the greens on their weekly golf game and discussing their passion for hearty food and heavy drink. Perhaps it was the whistling winds, the hue of the course, or pulling James Joyce out of a sand trap that inspired them to open their own Irish pub. Now the friendship of the founders extends to the patrons of their restaurant, where streams of 22 beers on tap and more than 80 whiskeys await happy gullets. The menu is loaded with Irish staples, including potato- and corned-beef-packed appetizers, and dishes such as shepherd's pie, lamb stew, and bangers and mash. Spirits continue to be raised by weekly trivia games and weekday specials, and Jersey Shore bands keep patrons dancing on weekend nights.

Stop in for fresh seafood and burgers at Maggie's Underground the casual restaurant with a sports bar vibe, pop into Maggie's Uptown for a specialty cocktail or special sushi roll, or head to the fresh air of Maggie's Tiki Bar to drink in the sounds of live music with an island vibe during the warmer months. In addition to serving up a shared menu of unique pub fare, pizza, sushi, house specialty prime rib, and desserts such as chocolate fondues, Club Maggies holds regular events including open mic and karaoke nights.

Harrigan's has been serving up Irish hospitality by way of fresh seafood, steak, and sandwiches for more than 25 years.

Make Irish eyes smile from lid to lid with Guinness-kissed beef potpie ($14.99) or Irish-whiskey chicken marinated with Jameson. Nautically nosh on the surf o' turf ($18.99), or challenge butter- and garlic-infused steak, paired with fries or frizzled onions ($15.99), to slake demanding dental requests. Harrigan's also houses a fully stocked bar backed by bartenders friendly enough to rotate customers' frowns 90 degrees.

Barbershop quartet Forever Plaid delighted audiences in an off-Broadway show that mixed the gents' '50s-style harmonies with madcap comedy skits. In a holiday-themed sequel to the original show, the guy group aims to lend harmony to a discordant world with more a cappella melodies and holiday cheer than a chain gang dressed in Santa outfits. During screwball skits, the troupe stages an abbreviated version of The Ed Sullivan Show, inviting the Chipmunks and chorus girls to the variety show. A Caribbean-themed Christmas segment fills the stage and blends Yuletide greetings with island style.

Brickwall's friendly ambiance livens up the final block of Cookman Avenue in Asbury Park, revitalizing a once-forgotten neighborhood with warming food and local events. An industrial-style interior sets the stage for an eclectic menu of updated homestyle plates, sporting appetizers such as cajun seared shrimp with parmesan grits ($12) and savory main courses such as a dry-rub half-rack of ribs ($15). More herbaceous hankerings can be answered with earthy eats such as potato, pesto, and parmesan fusilli ($14). Satisfy a sweet tooth with a single dessert of blueberry cobbler, or swaddle a whole mouth's worth with a half-dozen post-dinner dishes (desserts are $3 each, or $15 for six). The tavern's extensive drink selection includes ample offerings of wine, beer, and creative cocktails to wet the whistles of patrons lacking their own camel-like water supply.
