Visiting an Irish pub is like stepping into James Joyce's Ulysses without dealing with molemen, teenage detectives, and heavy-handed NASCAR references. Read the CliffsNotes with today's Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of Irish-American grub and drinks at Crowley's Downtown in downtown St. Petersburg.
At Crowley's Downtown, traditional Irish meals commence with an authentic plate of Irish bangers ($6.50), paired with a side of mashed potatoes and gravy. Go entreeing with the slammin' cod sandwich ($9), with Guinness-battered fried cod gently hugged by bread. After 4 p.m., the traditional Irish stew ($13.50) quiets grumbling tummies with a brimming mix of lamb, potatoes, and carrots. For dessert, liquor and cheesecake combine superpowers like Captain Planet receiving an eye transplant from Cyclops to form the unstoppable Bailey's Irish cheesecake ($5). Barley buffs can comb the pub's page-turning beer list, which includes Irish specialties like Magners Irish Cider and Murphy's Irish Stout, as well as a few American variations, such as Rogue Shakespeare Stout, a creamy, mellow beer.
Those who feel magnetically impelled to grab microphones and sing Ace Of Base covers should attend Crowley's on Monday for karaoke night. Crowley's friendly, jovial waitstaff, bartenders, and limerick-spinning DJs make Irish dining complete and Irish.
