World Cup news: tomorrow (Tuesday November 29) is a "win or go home" match for the USA as they take on Iran at 1 PM, with England-Wales playing at the same time. It should be a festive crowd so we suggest getting here a little early for a seat.

Also through December 2nd we won't be opening early for any of the 9:00 AM matches but will begin doing so for major matches when the knockout round commences (December 3rd).

November 25, 2022

The Village of Barrington has put together an interesting concept for "Park Avenue Plaza", which would consist of permanent outdoor community gathering space and al fresco dining on the stretch of Park Avenue that borders the north side of both Pub buildings (where we've done the Barrington Celtic Fest tents in the past).  This is based on the passing of the "Home Rule" referendum on November 8th. There are certainly several pros and cons to the idea; take a look at the detailed writeup from 365Barrington, and also visit the Village of Barrington website for more information on the Home Rule referendum.

October 9, 2022

Today we have a special Heineken promotion from 1:00 PM - 2:30 PM, with samplings, giveaways and more!  Chicago Bears - Vikings kickoff at noon, while the Manchester United - Everton match starts at 1 PM (we'll be showing both & Bears game will be with sound).
