Drinkin', drivin'

As you can see in GO! to this blarney-stone encrusted timepiece's right, the Fenians are in town to provide the soundtrack to your St. Paddy's Day overindulgences. If that's too loud or too sold out or too bar-fight-leading-to-parole-violation worthy for you, you can see how much tolerance you have for green beer at Silky Sullivan's in Fountain Valley, the Harp or Skosh Monahan's in Costa Mesa, Muldoon's or Malarkey's in Newport Beach or any Insert-City-Name-Here Brewing Company near you. The earlier you arrive, the less likely it is you'll have to sit on a sticky floor.

But we gotta warn ya ... Actually, Santa Ana DUI defense attorney Robert Miller, as reported by bestOCevents.com, advises that Costa Mesa PD's Traffic Division will conduct a sobriety checkpoint from 8 p.m. to 2 a.m. at Newport Boulevard and Flower Street. You can practically stumble out of Skosh's and stumble into it, and that's intersection that will surely be passed through by many people headed to/from the Harp, Muldoon's and Malarkey's -- not to mention Goat Hill and the many fine dive bars that populate that part of town.
