St. Patrick’s Day is right around the corner and sure we’ll be serving up pints of Guinness and rounds of Jamesons all week long but this year we’re also offering St. Patty’s Day revelers the opportunity to make a political statement while quaffing a few rounds.
We’re the only bar in Seattle (it’s a fact) selling this T-shirt ($20/American Apparel) and we think everyone will enjoy it just as much as we do. Shirts go on sale Tuesday and we’ll have them around through St. Patty’s Day – which, incidentally falls on Monday. We’ll be open anyway (of course) serving up traditional cornbeef and cabbage as well as Guinness stew and the not-so-traditional but ever popular hummus plate.
The shirt was created by a local guy named Paul Porte and we love it so much we wanted to help give his stuff a push.
PS. Sale of the shirt in no way reflects the views of the staff and/ or owners of The BottleNeck Lounge although we do collectively yearn for a Democrat to save the damn day.
