In these days, when almost every restaurateur will tell you he’s trying to run a "neighborhood place," Baile Corcaigh achieves that feel - even if many of the patrons travel far to get there. The restaurant serves spuds in leek pie, Connemara broth, Irish stew, and fish and chips. What this place does with humble root vegetables is impressive.
Irish pubs, which have long been a feature of the American drinking scene, have become a worldwide phenomenon, flourishing in such unlikely venues as Moscow and Tokyo. And so it makes sense that the Blarney Stone's everyday menu is all-American pub grub. The Susie-Q-Fish & Chips dinner ($10.95) is based on the original recipe of the celebrated drive-in restaurant. Burton fries his freshly-cut scrod encased in a secret-recipe batter that emerges as a thick, crispy but surprisingly light crust, accompanied by house-made tartar sauce and Susie's vinegar-based cole slaw. Try the order of five flavorful burger sliders ($5.95) - with pickles, onions and a tomato-mustard sauce. There are 10 other burger varieties, including, again for the health-conscious, bison or turkey.

Established in 1972, Kennedy's makes it feel like St. Patrick's Day year-round. We dare you to try not to fill up on their corned beef offerings.

Alternative hip-hop has never been better, that is, since the reunion of Jurassic 5. Following their 2007 break-up, it was a quiet six years for Jurassic fans, until the boys reunited for last year’s Coachella festival. After playing a few shows together, Jurassic 5 announced their “Word of Mouth Reunion Tour” earlier this year, complete with a Royal Oak pit stop. If their new song “The Way We Do It” is any indication of what’s to come for the group, fans have a lot to look forward to. In the music video, the boys, sounding better than ever, go stomping through Colorado’s infamous Red Rocks Amphitheatre in the dead of winter. Wrapped up from head to toe, they throw down lines like they were never on hiatus, showcasing their ceaseless talent.
The Hard Lessons will be hitting the stage at Magic Bag this Saturday in celebration of their newly released album Arms Forrest. For these Detroit natives the release of Arms Forrest brings about a change for the band with songs ranging from raw-guitar to slinky-dance-groove tracks.
