Erin go home: Phillly bars shed 'Celtic' themes

The NBA playoffs have just gotten ridiculous.

Erin go home: Phillly bars shed 'Celtic' themes


The Sixers are getting love from five traditionally Irish eateries, which are giving up their Celtic spirit today.

The Plough & the Stars in Old City is going by The Plough & the Sixers

Fado: Traditional Irish Fare in Center City > Fado: Traditional Sixers Fans

McGillin's Olde Ale House in Center City > Spirit of 76 Olde Ale House

Irish Pub (both in Center City) >  Sixers Pub

During this series, McGillin's, er, Spirit of 76 will serve pints of Pabst Blue Ribbon for $1.76 and has created the drink Hoops and Hops,  a shot of Seagram's 7 dropped into a pint of 6points Ale (76).
