  • BlackFriar Pub

    2621 McKinney Ave. Dallas, TX 75204
    214-953-01616http://blackfriarpub.comA beer-lover’s haven, BlackFriar Pub offers a deep and ever-changing selection of brews, with nightly specials. Unfortunately, some of the servers can be appallingly inattentive and ignorant of the beers, and the Uptown location attracts a monochromatic crowd of douchebags, dudebros and the infamous $30K millionaire. More >>

    Frankie’s Sports Bar and Grill

    3227 McKinney Ave. Dallas, TX 75204
    214-999-8932http://frankiesbar.comFrankie’s is clearly trying hard to distinguish itself from the thousands of other generic sports bars in town, and almost manages to do so. The menu is loaded with attitude and jokes such as calling its wraps “Rapper’z” (“All Rapper’z served with subpoenas”). But considering the mammoth serving sizes of burgers, nachos and other typical bar food, they can get away with it. Once the novelty of the menu wears off, dozens of televisions and video trivia screens compete for your attention. Also, if there’s not a game on, chances are good that you’ll have the place to yourself. More >>

    214-358-4159http://humperdinks.comIf you find generic bro-bars slightly depressing, Humperdink’s may not be for you. Sports bars can be hit-or-miss, but chain sports bars inevitably seem to have a manufactured enthusiasm, as if they’re all designed from a blueprint with blank areas that say “Install local sports team banner here.” Of course, none of that matters after a few beers. And that’s what sets Humperdink’s apart–not only is it an all-purpose bar offering food, karaoke and big-screen televisions, but each location also boasts its own brewery, plus a small but well thought-out selection of other craft beers. In fact, the beer is good enough that you may want to get one of the 100-oz. “Beer Towers,” a man-sized glass tube with a spigot at the bottom that requires a minimum of three people to order. The beer and the friends may be needed if you’re going to brave the karaoke stage. More >>

  • 197Idle Rich Pub

    Idle Rich Pub

    2614 McKinney Ave. Dallas, TX 75204
    214-965-9926http://idlerichpub.comTurns out the term “Idle Rich” has a double meaning, as it is a slang name for beggars in owner Feargal McKinney’s native Ireland. In the case of the bar, it’s a coy way of saying all are welcome. That was indeed the case on a recent visit. There were millionaires, sure–both the real deal and the $30,000 version. But there was also a guy sporting a foot-tall mohawk who didn’t get a second glance. The menu lists a few fancy-pants items like pate and the aforementioned cheese boards, but there’s plenty of meaty, deep-fried and greasy grub too: calamari, cheese fries, burgers and fish and chips. In fact, such stomach-coating fare is pretty much all that’s available after 11 p.m. Steamed mussels were a highlight–largely due to the accompanying “frites” (French fries in American) and spicy mayonnaise. The beer and whiskey selection is extensive, with even premium offerings reasonably priced. Added bonus: the menu’s helpful and occasionally smart-ass descriptions. Example: “Corona-Miles away from unusual.” The crowd tends to be somewhat douche-friendly. But the music–Pixies, Nirvana, Pavement, Beastie Boys and the occasional contemporary indie-rock hit–will drown out their inane conversations. And the food makes it more than worthwhile. More >>

But the bastion of normalcy holds strong inside the walls of the Old Monk. The Old Monk boasts an impressive scotch menu with over 40 to choose from, and an even more impressive beer menu with 17 craft beers on tap, and over 60 in the bottle. Think of the Old Monk as an oasis for a person of simple style and complex taste.More >>

Polished, well-lit and attracting a clean-cut crowd, it’s definitely no dive. But if you’re trying to track down a hard-to-find beer, in the mood for some authentic Irish folk music or feel like competing in the Sunday Night Pub Quiz, this is the place to be. More >>

    Zaguan World Bakery and Cafe

    2604 Oak Lawn Ave. Dallas, TX 75219
    214-219-8393http://www.zaguanbakery.com/In Dallas’ Oak Lawn district sits a Latin favorite, Zaguan. The restaurant’s adobe exterior features a narrow entryway that leads to a peaceful sanctuary of a dining room. Peaceful, that is—until a big soccer match is underway, in which case it’s hard to find a seat amongst the rambunctious crowd. Enjoy cold beers from south of the border, and some delicious Columbian coffee and pastries. The menu is comprised of traditional South American staples, which are great rewards for being adventurous enough to try them. More >>

World Cup Trivia

By · Comments (0)
  • The first world cup soccer match kicked off on July 13th, 1930 with France beating Mexico 4 to 1 (more on Uruguay 1930)
  • There were a total of 13 teams in the first World Cup. Besides the host Uruguay, there were Argentina, Belgium, Brazil, Bolivia, Chile, France, Mexico, Paraguay, Peru, Romania, the United States and Yugoslavia.
  • Did you know that South American and European countries have won the World Cup 9 times and 9 times respectively. There has been no other continent which has produced a World Cup Champion.
  • World Cup Winners (total number by country) – Brazil 5 – Italy 4 – Germany (West) 3 – Uruguay 2 – Argentina 2 – England 1 – France
  • Who says there is no such thing as home advantage? Out of the 19 World Cups so far, six have been won by the host country.
  • Bora Milutinovic coached in every tournament between 1986 and 2002 – but for different teams: Mexico, Costa Rica, USA, Nigeria and China.
  • No European team has won a World Cup played outside of Europe.
  • Five teams have been unbeaten but not the champions in the same finals. Those unbeaten teams are: Scotland in 1974 (1 win, 2 draws), Brazil in 1978 (4 wins, 3 draws), England in 1982 (3 wins, 2 draws), Cameroon in 1982 (3 draws), Belgium in 1998 (3 draws).
  • The only person to have played both World Cup Football and World Cup Cricket is Viv Richards – playing for Antigua in football and West Indies in cricket.
  • Cameroon’s Roger Milla is the oldest player at the World Cup – he was 42 years and 39 days old when he played his last match against Russia in 1994. Northern Ireland’s Norman Whiteside is the youngest ever finals player, being just 17 years and 41 days when he took the field against Yugoslavia in 1982.
  • Shirt swapping was once officially prohibited in 1986 because FIFA did not want players to ‘bare their chests’ on the field.
  • The highest attendance at a World Cup match was 199,854 at the Maracana Stadium in Rio de Janerio for the 1950 decider between Uraguay and Brazil.
  • The most common surname of World Cup players is Gonzalez or Gonzales. The most common score in a World Cup finals match is 1-0.
  • Brazil are the only country to have appeared in every finals, 19 finals tournaments from 1930 to 2010. And they have automatically qualified for the 2016 tournament as hosts.
  • The 2010 World Cup is the first with no debutant associations, although two of the qualifiers (Slovakia and Serbia) have previously appeared only as parts of former competing nations.
  • No host country has ever been eliminated in the first round – is 2010 the first time?

Bellamy, Please.

So, Cardiff almost make it to the Premiership.  Nice going.  It would have been great to have either Cardiff or Blackpool in the Prem, I like the idea of a shake up, but Blackpool worked hard and it paid off. 

Swansea AND Cardiff in the Prem would be even better for the rivalry, but answeer me this:  Why not Scottish teams?  I realise the Scots may not want any part of English football, they’re a proud nation (translated as they “dislike” the English, not a total generalization – ask me about the compalints we get for promoting Scottish business on a site called TheBrits.com) and there’s a lot of Scot teams that would need to be included.  Read More→

Fact!

By · Comments (1)

Many years ago in Scotland , a new game was invented. It was ruled ‘Gentlemen 
Only…Ladies Forbidden’.. .and thus, the word GOLF entered into the English language.

In English pubs, ale is ordered by pints and quarts… So in old England , when 
customers got unruly, the bartender would yell at them ‘Mind your pints and quarts, and settle down.’ It’s where we get the phrase ‘mind your P’s and Q’s’.

The British Culinary Invasion by Erica Chorley

“The Brits are coming, the Brits are coming!” A cry being heard in cooking schools and broadcasting companies alike.

KELLS Seattle’s Irish Restaurant & Pub 1916 Post Alley, Seattle, WA 98101 Not the Friendliest of Welcomes…

TheBrits.com went on a trip to Washington and Canada in search of Great Brit Businesses. We e-mailed ahead to let a few places know of our visit. We were hoping for an interview and review of their establishment. One of the places we were looking forward to visiting was Kells Irish restaurant & Pub. We had read and heard some good things so expected some nice results. On our arrival, I decided to talk to a manager about our visit and about TheBrits.com. I asked a barmaid if there was a manager I could talk to. She pointed me in the direction of Laoise Brogan… Read More→
