Eating is necessary for human survival, along with breathing, sleeping, and remaining still while a curious velociraptor rummages through your closet. Practice survival tactics with today’s Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of pub grub and drinks at The Blarney Stone.
Nestled in the bustling downtown area, The Blarney Stone's culinarians dish up a menu of Irish comfort cuisine alongside imported and local brews in a convivial Irish-pub setting. Tossed in a signature whiskey hot sauce, Jameson wings soar onto palates sheathed in a creamy blue-cheese dressing ($7.99) before waiters carry or teleport hearty main courses to tables. Piping bowls of Irish stew pique nostrils with a fragrant blend of fresh veggies, robust potatoes, Guinness-braised beef, and Northwest lamb ($10.99). Fix fangs into one of a dozen succulent burgers ($7.99+), or opt for a traditional sausage roll drizzled in a Bordelaise sauce ($6.99). Forkfuls of slow-cooked corned beef and cabbage ($11.99) complement sudsy pints, goblets, or 10-gallon kiddie pools of Guinness and Manny’s locally brewed ale.
Diners can bask in the glow of flickering widescreen TVs and an ultramodern jukebox in a dining room that's decked out with pool tables and steel-tipped darts, or they can nosh al fresco on an outdoor patio peppered with dangling white and blue bulbs.
The Blarney Stone
Every Monday night, The Blarney Stone opens its doors to a very special group of people—the geeks. Their weekly hosted trivia night, lovingly called "Geeks Who Drink," allows eggheads and trivia buffs of all walks of life to come together and test their wits as they feast on Irish classics such as the shepherd’s pie and halibut and chips. Meanwhile, cozied up to the bar or tucked behind a table, those who hide their geekiness under a bushel basket can mutter the answers under their breath while nursing an expertly poured pint of Guinness or tearing into one of the pub’s many flavorful burgers. In addition to the trivia night, patrons can satisfy their need for competition with NFL broadcasts and an accompanying football breakfast, a big-screen hookup to a Nintendo Wii, and paired pool tables and dart boards.
