Pubs: Limerick Junction, the only Irish-style haunt in the Va-Hi area, features a terrific repertoire of live Irish folk music every weekend. Indeed, you'll feel as though you've been transported to the Emerald Isle when you sip your Harp or Guinness surrounded by traditional pub decor: dark-stained woods, subdued lighting, and comfy furniture. The best seats are near the front, where you can watch as passersby go about their evening rituals. If it's cold out, an order of corned beef and cabbage or Irish stew goes a long way toward warming your bones. It is a surefire winner on St. Patrick's Day.
