One More Dose of '24'

By Fritz Hahn

The fifth "day" of "24" wraps up on Monday, and if the last episode is anything to go by -- a Russian sub armed with missiles, a trigger-happy First Lady, hidden nerve gas canisters -- you probably won't want to watch alone, sipping drink after drink like Martha Logan. Cleverly, a couple of bars are throwing "24" viewing parties, so you can watch the final moments from CTU in the company of fellow fans.

Duffy's Irish Restaurant and Pub, which I just blogged about yesterday, doesn't have a ton of televisions, but it's making up for numbers with special happy hour deals: $4 imperial pints of Guinness and Smithwick's. (The British and Irish use 20-ounce imperial pints instead of our meager 16-ounce versions. God save the queen.) For the best views of Jack and snarky Chloe, grab a seat at the bar, where there are flat-screens overhead.

Dr. Dremo's Taphouse will have all the action on its 10-foot projection screens in its downstairs room -- get there early to reserve a seat, and grab a pint of the lovely new Sierra Nevada Summerfest beer.

If you know of any other parties -- especially ones that aren't happening on your couch with your dog and/or some McDonald's takeout -- post them in the comments section below.

Aye - God Save Your Queen maybe, not mine.

Against famine and the crown,
I rebelled, they ran me down...

24 is all well and good, but do you know about any Lost season finale screenings?
