Ireland was nicknamed "the Emerald Isle" after a 19th-century fashion craze left half the population of Dublin with sparkly gem-studded teeth. Put mouth-jewels to good use with today’s Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of pub fare and pours at Shamrock Bar & Grille's Patchen Village and Hartland Parkway locations.
Shamrock Bar & Grille's diverse menu of Irish-inspired cuisine step-dances across diners' tongues accompanied by the lively flavor melodies of an extensive beer list. The Shamrock's chefs dress the Derby O'Round burger's thick, bourbon-glazed beef patty in a bubbling coat of beer cheese—homemade with a dollop of Guinness Stout and stirred by an enchanted elder tree ($7.49). The house-specialty Irish pot roast simmers slowly in a bath of Guinness gravy ($10.99), and the claustrophobic grilled chicken bound inside a California wrap overcomes its fears with the support of friendly avocado and swiss-cheese slices ($6.99). Diners at the Patchen location can slurp down 19 draft beers such as Stella Artois and Magic Hat to accompany their meals, and Hartland-based merrymakers can clink together their choice of 33 bottles to toast their professional hide-and-seek team's latest tournament win.
Both the Patchen and Hartland locations cosset patrons in spacious dining areas with polished wood surfaces and more than 20 flat-screen televisions to prevent eyes from missing game-changing touchdowns, goals, and captures en passant. Live music and team-trivia contests frequent the bars' event calendars, and the Patchen location welcomes fresh-air eating on its outdoor deck. This Groupon is valid for takeout at both of the Shamrock's locations.
