    Pogue Fado, Oh You Should GO

    Okay. Toronto, deligtful place except: it is up to its eyeballs with hipsters, clubbers, scenesters, yuppies, and everyone else trying to out-cool the next guy, and thus has a stick up its you-know-what, and thus getting down with your bad self is often an effort wasted in a sea of swoopy-hair posers looking around to see if anyone is watching them breathe, seductively sip on their appletini or pbr, and toss their hair about (BTW, love this city, I am just saying).

    Halifax. Getting down wiht your bad self is the only way Halifax knows how to get down. Of course no one told me so I went out in a trendy haircut, "ironic scarf" (horsies!!), and hooker-esque earrings (bricolage, you better believe I am in uni). You will see this demonstrated in photo 1 of this review. Saunter over to photo 2 and you will see scarf and earrings are in the purse (well you wont SEE the inside of my purse, but trust me) and I am so drunk on gin and tonic (STRONG!), singing along...

    Pógue Fadó was conceived late in 2002 by six friends who had always dreamed of opening their own Pub. The plan was simple; create a warm, friendly environment where they and their friends could enjoy the best of food, drink, and live music. Today their establishment is the busiest of its type in Atlantic Canada and is a well recognized landmark in the dining and entertainment scene. The food is typical Pub fare along with some traditional Irish dishes that are all delicious and very reasonably priced. The drink is whatever you could want and more, with all the best Irish Premium draughts on tap. As for the music, the pairing of top talent with a state-of-the-art sound system makes Pogue Fado an unequalled live entertainment venue. Many of Canada's top performers have dropped by for an impromptu song or two. Add to all this the friendliest bar staff in Halifax and we are confident that after one visit you too will make 'The Pogue' your favourite.
