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: $15 for $30 worth of food and drinks plus a free shot of the day at Slattery's Midtown Pub.
Slattery's is a hybrid neighborhood tavern, combining elements of a traditional Irish pub (features Allen Gogarty on acoustic guitar every Wednesday night) and a modern sports bar (the walls are plastered with flat-screen TVs). While watching a sports game or listening to folk music written about watching a sports game, satiate taste buds with an item from Slattery's menu, including pub fare such as the shepherd's pie ($12.95) and gourmet dishes such as the potato-crusted salmon served in a honey-dijon sauce ($21.95). Slattery's traditional Irish breakfast ($12.95) will chase your Saturday hangover off a cliff into the ocean, whereas Saturday-night DJ Ryze sets will inspire you to dive into the ocean and rescue the hangover.
Today's Groupon also comes with a free shot of the day for everybody at your table. So start thinking of a toast now, such as "here's to a good season three of Fringe, which will begin airing Thursday, September 23, on FOX."
Not valid during Thursday happy hour from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m.
Slattery's Midtown Pub
The glow from flickering flat-screen televisions spills across a burnished-wood bar at Slattery’s Midtown Pub, where craft suds from Smithwick’s and Guinness complement pub grub and upscale entrees, including bowls of signature chicken curry and homemade crab-cake sandwiches. On weekends, diners can unfurl heavy eyelids with traditional Irish breakfast, which provides appetizing alternatives to Irish alarm clocks that loudly belt out choruses from age-old drinking songs. Televised sports incite rousing cheers from Slattery’s friendly clientele, echoing throughout two floors of seating surrounded by luminous wall sconces and modern wood accents.
