Mark the start of the St. Patrick’s Day weekend with a stop at a genuine Rogers Park Irish Pub. My Follow Me on Friday series continues this Friday, March 16th, 5:00 to 7:00 p.m. at the Poitin Stil, 1502 W. Jarvis (at Greenview).
Whether or not you’re Irish, you’ll feel like you’re in Galway at this authentic Irish pub. The name (pronounced “poo-chine still”) is Gaelic for moonshine. It’s a relaxed, fun and unpretentious neighborhood pub with a great mix of people. Look for the maroon shades of Galway’s home team colors.
Poitin Stil’s owner, Ted Ries, is offering a complimentary drink of your choice and I’m serving up some delicious corned beef sandwiches!
“Follow Me on Friday” is one of my efforts to encourage my constituents to sample some of the 49th Ward’s finest restaurants, pubs and businesses. Each week on my Facebook page, I post the name and location of a local restaurant, pub or business where I’ll be hanging out after work on Friday. The establishment offers specials for all my Facebook followers and their friends. It’s a great opportunity for you to check out one of the fine local 49th Ward businesses you may not have visited before.
