Finn McCool's Irish Pub Restaurant Review

: New Orleans has a surfeit of sports bars. But if you really want to block out the rest of the world and just party, you need an authentic Irish pub. This place offers so many special events that some regulars keep a calendar of what’s upcoming. Thursday nights are for board games and possibly the loudest and most raucous Scrabble games anywhere. Ditto the dart games on Tuesday and pool on Wednesday. English and Scottish soccer games play constantly on the 50-inch flat-screen TVs. There’s also an annual short story competition, trivia nights, a jukebox and dozens of beer selections.
