Irish ex-pat owners George Garrity and Brenda Brennacht named their pub in honor of the neighborhood’s musical history, but Affair on 8th is less “Subterranean Homesick Blues” and more karaoke Thursdays. The cozy stoned fireplace is a nice touch, but for the most part, Affair fits in snugly with the Irish pub template: a lengthy bar in front, a spacious dining area with cushioned seating in the back, Guinness and Smithwick’s on tap, and legitimate brogues all over the place.

Weekend Fry-Up

Brunch is served on Saturday and Sunday, 11am-3pm. Try the traditional Irish breakfast complete with fried eggs, bacon, sausage, tomato, black and white pudding, home fries, coffee or tea, and Irish brown bread ($13).
