An Evening Out on Clinton May 1, 2010

Last night I met some friends in the Clinton neighborhood for dinner and drinks. It was nice to check out an area of town that I am not as familiar with.

We met up at the Clinton Street Pub. It is a small place that is easy to miss because there is no sign. Or at least I did not see a sign. Inside is your typical grungy dive bar, so, of course, I loved it. They have a couple of pinball machines and some tables and old school booths and about eight beers on tap. The beers tended toward the smaller, local breweries, which was another plus in my book. Many of the other customers were drinking PBR tallboys.

After a drink at Clinton Street, we headed down the road to  the Night Light Lounge for dinner. The ambience was more upscale than Clinton Street, but still very laid back. The place was crowded and kind of noisy but we did not have a problem getting a table. The food was delicious and very reasonably priced. I had the Korean Short Ribs and they were excellent for $11. My friend had the buffalo stew and was also pleased with his meal. Like Clinton Street Pub, the draft beers were smaller local brews.

There walking around Clinton Street, I saw quite a few other places I would like to check out. I have a feeling I’ll be heading back soon. Today is Derby Day so I am off to a Derby themed house party. My buddy in Louisville made my bet for me. Go Dublin Go!
