Burgers are a key link in the food chain, sustaining humankind with protein-filled meals and providing a home for endangered romaine leaves. Sup on the circle of life with today's Groupon: for $8, you get $16 worth of gourmet burgers, pub fare, and drinks at Paddy O'Sullivan's in St. Pete Beach.
The staff at Paddy O'Sullivan's fuses Irish heritage with Floridian vittles, fanning a hormone-free selection of deluxe Black Angus burgers from Creekstone Farms before a mighty tower of more than 100 world-crafted beers. The parade of gourmet sandwiches goes on to encompass all of Old MacDonald's farm, from mooing cows to roaring gators and sweetly singing lobsters. Preconceived frontiers are smashed with exotic bread-flanked beef offerings such as the Maui O'Pineapple ($7.95), which wears a tutti frutti hat of seared pineapple and grilled maui onions. Flail your arms like inflatable tube men to the pub's jaunty Irish soundtrack and scarf a Three Irish Cheeses burger with Irish porter cheddar, Guinness cheese, and whiskey cheddar ($7.95). If no particular burger on the menu strikes a chord, create a custom gut-buster using any of the multitudinous meats, cheeses, sauces, and breads.
Recede into the cushions of Paddy's retro-style booths and nurse one of its sweet spiked milkshakes, such as the Bananas Foster, with Bananas 99, Meyers Dark Rum, and brown sugar ($8). A huge projection screen and a dozen HD flat-screen televisions occupy eyes as they wait patiently for mouths to finish munching on their meaty meals.
