Happy Birthday, Conor O’Neill’s!

They were that good...

...and they were that fast.

Boulder’s favorite Irish pub is celebrating its 7th anniversary/birthday today! There are balloons and banners all over the place, and on the stage there’s a troupe of dancers, kids of all ages in red tunics embroidered with Book Of Kells style designs, tiaras in their hair (the girls, anyway), and shoes that go clackety-clackety when they impact the floor. Which they do, with much quickness and agility, to the beat of Celtic-electronica coming out a tiny CD-player boombox on the side of the stage.

The dancing is from 5 to 7. We’re in the second set now. But you’re not too late for the other perks of a birthday party: Happy hour all day, and a performance by The Commoners commencing at 10 PM.

Now eating: Traditional Irish Breakfast (two eggs any style, toast, fried tomato wedges, fried ham, imported Irish bangers, and black and white puddings purported to be made from scratch in Conor’s own kitchen)

Now drinking: Iced Irish coffee (a tall glass full of the house blend from the Brewing Market next door, Bushmill’s Irish Whiskey, and a splash of Baileys on the rocks with whipped cream on top)

Music to get in the mood: The Drowned: If Happiness is Water
