Readers' Choice: Best Place to Grab a Drink

Tell us where you'll be celebrating St. Paddy's Day.

St. Patrick's Day is Saturday and people everywhere will be toasting to the Irish. Patch wants to know: Where in Monrovia will you raise your glass?

For such a relatively small town, Monrovia certainly has no shortage of places to knock one back.  Here are the six establishments in our latest Readers' Choice poll: , , , , , .

Tell us about your favorite watering hole in the comments. What do you like about it?

The atmosphere? The camaraderie and type of patrons it attracts? Or perhaps it is the wide array of beers to choose from or that the bartender somehow always makes your drink exactly how you like it?

Feel free to upload a photo of you and your friends enjoying a night out while you're at it. Also, if we left out a place that should be in the poll, let us know.

Voting closes Thursday.

*Reminder* Have fun this St. Paddy's Day weekend, but please drink responsibly and never drink and drive.

We'll be celebrating our own leprechaun, Cody, who turns 20 today at Dan's Digs. We'll chase down some tacos with a couple of frosty beverages; the soft variety for him and finish it off with a green cake. Happy Birthday, grandson.

I wish people ( the media in particular) would focus less on St. Patrick's Day as an excuse to get drunk and more on the contributions of the Irish and of Irish Americans to the United States. I'm no puritanical anti-boozer. I like my Guinness. but focussing on alcohol abuse as being Irish is demeaning to one of the largest groups of immigrants in this country. Irish immigrants provide us with a success story that should be an inspiration to us all. The Irish were the first desperately poor group to arrive here to put to the test the ideals of tolerance and personal liberty embodied in the Bill of Rights. They were met with a hostility that would make the harshest critic of "illegal" immigration blush with shame. Within a generation, they had adapted to the point where they were running the place! Modern immigration issues pose the same challenges today, both for the immigrants and the rest of us. Demonizing ambitious, hard working people who want to better their lives does nothing to help the situation. Latino immigrants stand at Home Depot looking for actual work in a place where work might be found, but it seems that Americans are more prone to standing on freeway off ramps, looking for a handout. These modern immigrants are providing the same injection of new vigor to our society that the Irish, the Italians, the Jews, and all the rest of the people who made it here, hoping to live a better life. Remember, an immigrant is someone who got off the boat after you did!

Hi Stephen: Well argued. Would you like to write a blog post about it? We'd love to get your thoughts.

Is there a reason why we keep leaving Claim Jumper off the list? I was there tonight with the two grandkids. Best I can tell, it has a Monrovia address. We drank soft drinks and water though.
