Luck of the Irish: Finn McCool's Named Top 10 Pub


On St. Patrick’s Day, it is only proper to ponder the importance of the Irish pub. The Irish Times gave the topic some thought last week and New Orleans was represented. Finn McCool’s (3701) Banks Street made the Celtic standard’s list of the top ten Irish pubs outside of the Emerald Isle.

Irish House's St. Patrick's Week



With over a dozen parades in town, St. Patrick’s Day is starting to feel a lot like Mardi Gras. Celt central, the Irish House (1432 St. Charles Avenue) is also presenting a full roster of indoor events. The gastropub’s annual Irish Week begins on Monday (3.09).


Film Review: Good Vibrations


By Jason Raymond

If you wonder why I’m so critical of American cinema, it’s because they don’t make films like Good Vibrations anymore. I don’t particularly need a movie to transcend to a work of art, but it would be nice to occasionally see something original. Developed characters, conflict that isn’t always resolved through violence, and smart composition go along way. Good Vibrations is fun to watch because it delivers on all these criteria.
