Saskatoon’s Irish About To LOSE IT!

Actually, mostly non-Irish will be losing it tonight. I s’pect most Irish view this as a day of reverence to varying degrees. It’s the rest of us (I’m Swiss) that grab on to any excuse to make an idiot of ourselves. So enjoy Regina friends.

On the off chance you’re here in Saskatoon … a couple places that will help you feel like you’re part of something tonight:

Winston’s in the old Senator Hotel. They’re a cool English pub that somehow flips their flag one night a year but they do it up right.

I also recommend O’Shea’s, which is actually an Irish pub on 2nd Avenue, complete with a separate entrance for leprechauns because drunk people like to crawl through it on their hands and knees to make their friends laugh.

I overheard a server at O’Shea’s telling a salesman “no thanks” about a month ago. The dude claimed to be the creator of the watermelon bra and he felt St. Patrick’s would be the perfect occasion for the servers to don his craft work. What a douche. The server politely said, “We’re not that kind of place,” and the goober left. Another reason to love O’Shea’s!

I like Regina’s “O” place too! Enjoy, and “Just say no” to beer with food colouring.

  1. O’Shea’s is fun, but unless they’ve got a new cook in the last year, their food is not that great. (With the exception of the Irish Nachos, of course.) Also, be there early, since on this auspicious date it fills up quickly. However, the grub at O’Shea’s is much, much better than any “food” you will get at Athena’s/Specklebelly’s…if you must go to Sutherland, eat at Foxy’s or Dino’s (but only order the burgers at Dino’s.)

    I’m more of a Yard girl, meself. Their veggie burger is great. And of course there’s the beer-battered fish and chips. Not sure why this turned into a food comment… anyways.

  2. Yard is a GREAT option! Yup. Seems you know Saskatoon better than I Katie. Quit showing off.

  3. I don’t know Saskatoon that well in terms of drinking establishments – I’m just a food snob and I work with a bunch of other food snobs! Ooh, there’s also Kelly’s for hangover breakfast tomorrow!
