Sláinte, Dublin Square

Steve Steward
If purgatory is real, I bet mine will be full of Irish pubs. I don’t mean actual pubs in Ireland but rather the American kind, where an authentic taste of the Emerald Isle’s culture can be found only in a pint of Harp –...

G Williker’s Will Survive

Steve Steward
Last October, during an idle drive down Division Street, I happened upon a place called Sidetracked Pub and Grub near the slowly dying Six Flags Mall. I might have ignored it if not for the fact that the Sidetracked appeared to...
