Landon Donovan is NOT going to the World Cup this summer. Yep …quite the shocker. So unless you’ve been stuck under a rock or watching the hockey play-offs like every other red-blooded American, there’s no way you’ve missed this controversial drama play out over the past couple of weeks. It’s been quite a bombshell for US […]

The UEFA Champions League Final is this Saturday, and we’re all going bonkers ‘cause it’s like that.  Real soccer fans understand that this game signifies the official end of the 2013 season.   Here’s why it matters so much to us: The 8(ish)-month long tournament is host to the best of the best of Europe’s […]

World Cup fandom in the US keeps getting bigger and bigger. And, this year, with Brazil as the host nation, it’s certain to be EPIC (an epic party if nothing else, eh?) So, with Fadó being the best place to watch soccer and all,  we have decided to raise the stakes and go big too. Like, […]

Mother’s Day is this Sunday and I propose we change things up.  Not talking a revolution here- but I think it’s time for new ideas of how to celebrate Mom.  Of course Mom’s deserve their own day.  If you don’t get THAT …just stop reading now, this article isn’t for you. It’s time to challenge […]

The subculture of soccer in American cities has been emerging for some time now. Fans have long been gathering […]

This entire “conscious uncoupling” malarkey has got me thinking. First of all, “conscious uncoupling” is probably the most pretentious term one could spout out of one’s mouth.  But, if I were to be honest (as a self-confessed beer snob) I get the same sort of backlash to my ‘approach’ to beer drinking. For example, I […]

I’ll be honest. I had a bit of  a St Patrick’s Day hangover …well, metaphorically speaking anyway.  It’s been a full month of nothing but Guinness and whiskey and I need a break! As I started to record some event notes as a debrief (like party shot pouches were a HIT – do that again!), […]

So every year we put together a series of FAQ (frequently asked questions) that will help party goers on St. Patrick’s Day navigate cover charge, parking, the menu, the band schedule and the dog question (which is a no – sorry.)

  Hibernophile, noun, (plural; Hibernophiles) defined as someone who has a love of Ireland and/or Irish culture.  In all actuality an Hibernophile probably hasn’t even heard of this word, but it doesnt matter. What DOES matter is that this love runs deep and the enthusiasm never wanes! Hibernophiles help to make the St Patrick’s Day […]
