Monday, January 18, 2010—Bar 8

Day Eight—Sunday, January 17th—The Hairy Monk

Okay, it’s my favorite night of the week to go out and I’m taking a suggestion from Sara (without an H) who I met at Jake’s Saloon on Friday night.

Sara (on the right) suggested the Hairy Monk.

She told me her favorite bar is called the Hairy Monk, which is located at the corner of 25rd and 3rd. So that’s where I’m going, that way if it sucks, it’s her fault! Maybe we’ll see Sara there, only time will tell, so let’s get over there!

Here we are, it's the Hairy Monk!

It's a decent crowd for a Sunday night!

Jo the bartender on duty happily serves up a 20 ounce pint of Guiness. Too rah loo rah loo rah!

Which of course leads to the age-old tradition of the wearin' of the Guiness on your noggin.' Cheers!

I wandered over to the three prettiest faces in the bar, Melissa, Emily and Caroline. They told me it was the first time they had been at the Hairy Monk.

Soon I was literally getting into the spirit of things by doing a shot with Jeff, Brian and Mike. Mike bought the shots and Jeff told me they were the anti-Boston group of the bar. It truly was more than a feeling.

Down the hatch and over the river and through the woods.

Some of the drink specials to be had at the Hairy Monk.

This is Wally who plays guitar inside the bar. Surprisingly there's no cover charge for this entertainment!

The beer of the month at the Hairy Monk.

I decide to combine the anti-Boston group with the prettiest faces in the bar by buying us all a shot. That's what I'm here for!

Ya gotta love a bar that has Jesus, Johnny Cash and Guiness on the cash register.

Okay, time for the nightly bathroom break.

Clean urinals, woo hoo!

Obligatory bathroom mirror shot.

Uh oh, Karaoke has begun. One rule I have in bars is: When the Karaoke begins, I get the fuck out of the joint! Goodnight everybody!


The Hairy Monk
is a fun bar where you feel like a regular even if it’s your first time in. The bartenders are friendly and there’s nice neighborhoodly vibe going on, even if you don’t live in the neighborhood, like me.

They have 19 beers on tap and they serve 20 ounce pints, size matters at The Hairy Monk! Happy hour happens every day from 11 am to 7 pm with a large selection of drinks, bottled beers and the aforementioned 19 beers on tap.

There’s a full menu of food to be had including fish ‘n’ chips, Irish mixed grill, chicken pot pie, Irish beef stew and lots of other entrees (see the website below for full menu.) Saturday and Sunday brunch is served till 4:30 pm and comes with 2 complimentary drinks from the menu.

If you're a fan of Boston sports, this is your spot. The Sox, Patriots and Celtics are featured on 8 TV screens and one large projection screen in the back of the bar. Personally I was just there for the Guiness and good times and there were plenty of each to be had.

A great review! It included booze, pretty girls and my second favorite bar trick......Guiness on the Noggin! My first favorite bar trick has always been Hairy Monk on the Piehole but i realize that this is a family show!

By the way........I think Jeff pissed his pants!

Uh oh! It looks like SOMEONE found Monica Lewinsky's blue dress! But seriously, dude...hotties, an 8-hour happy hour, AND chicken pot chicken pot chicken pot pie? Sign me up, Scotty!

Reminds me of a place I used to frequent and had a "Nun Related Incident" at.
(that's a story in itself and "nun" of your business)
Great job Daddio!

Thanks, Daddio! I'm one of the lucky one's who knows of the nun story you speak of and it's hilarious! You have to publish it sometime along with your other tales!
