The Irish Playwright W. B. Yeats famously said that "life is a long preparation for something that never happens" after collecting losing scratch-off lottery tickets for years. Take a break from your ceaseless preparations with today's Groupon: for $15, you get $30 worth of Irish-inspired fare and drinks at Playwright Irish Pub.
After catering for the likes of the President of Ireland and the Irish Prime Minister at European Union summit meetings, Executive Chef Peadar McNamee came to America to perfect Playwright's menu of authentic and modern Irish fare. Start with a sharable appetizer, such as three sliders topped with cheese and pickles ($12), or potato skins stuffed with cheddar, bacon, and scallions ($10.50). Empty hands can latch onto the grilled, 10-ounce, ground-sirloin Playwright Burger ($11.50), and those wanting traditional Irish fare can dive into bangers and mash ($16.50), shepherd's pie ($16.50), or fish 'n' chips ($17.00). Enjoy grub and libations on either of the pub's two expansive levels, lined with more than 80 flat-screen TVs that show a range of professional sports, including boxing, soccer, college football, the senior-citizen’s capture-the-flag league, and the NFL.
