Scenes From St. Patrick's Day: The Dubliner
3 p.m.: The Dubliner
The main floor at the Dubliner is a sea of green and white top hats -- styrofoam top hats, provided by Bailey's. But those aren't the only interesting headgear options sported here. There are guys with green sombreros and green derbies, women wearing shamrock antennae and even green devil horns. There are people wearing everything green you can imagine, from Larry Bird jerseys to kilts (on men) paired with Montgomery County Fire and Rescue T-shirts.
There are bands on two stages, and people are singing along in both rooms. Pints are flying off the taps as fast as the bartenders can pour them.
Joe Allan and J. G. Haught have been coming to the Dubliner for at least 25 years. "We always take the day off," said Haught. He points to a button on Allan's rugby shirt that's a souvenir from the Dubliner's St. Patrick's Day celebration in 1980.
This bar, says Allan, is "the closest thing to Dublin in D.C."
