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.

Studio owner and award-winning dancer Dianna “D” Dray calls ballroom dance “therapy for the soul.” With her fellow instructors, she hosts these unorthodox therapy sessions, basing the lessons on the philosophy that “anyone can learn.” On Latin Days (Mondays and Thursdays), the teachers lead salsa, rumba, cha-cha, and samba classes. Other days feature ballroom dances such as the foxtrot and the tango (Tuesdays), and freewheeling swing and hustle classes (Wednesdays). D also leads classes specifically for brides- and grooms-to-be, teaching them the steps to gracefully handle their first dance as a married couple, whether it’s a tactful waltz or a classy hokey pokey.
