Farewell to the local Irish pub

Well, here is another piece of bad news I have learned recently: the local Irish pub will soon close. It will be replaced by... yet another gastropub. That truly sucks. Where am I supposed to truly enjoy a pint of Guinness now? More importantly: where am I supposed to celebrate St-Patrick's Day now? It was THE place to be on that day, full of genuine atmosphere and so warm and welcoming. In fact, it was truly Irish in that way, it was a warm and welcoming pub any other day too. Oh and the many memorabilias that made it so unique (and example here). I feel like we really lost a great gathering place.
