OK, even though we are rapidly approaching 50 my wife and I still often hang out on campus. Coffee, a drink or just walking. We love to go there and grab a bite and walk a bit. It’s just something we’ve done since our teen years together and will likely never stop. Great little places from ethnic to pub food. It’s a little trip to somewhere else, when we are not traveling already( rare these days) lol.
One of our favorite places and dishes is Murphy’s Pub and the famous Bacon Mega Cheeseburger. It’s as simple as that. A good sized well cooked burger with your choice of cheese and bacon on it. I know it’s not the foodie review kinda thing but I don’t care. It’s awesome, tastes great and a great deal!!! Good fries, a solid burger. Mix that with a couple of beers or cocktails and it’s just a great simple evening. You can’t beat that!
The place has expanded in size quite a bit since I started going there decades ago, but still has that great pub atmosphere. Warm and inviting. It’s actually where I had my first pint of Guinness many moons ago. As young man training hard most of the time to fight, it was a welcome relaxing spot. Have a pint and let my bruises rest. Now as an older man who has seen a ton of the world as a fighter and now promoting places, it still has that feel. Order at the bar, grab a drink and just absorb it. Then walk around the streets a bit and just enjoy things. You’ll be amazed how you feel and what you find! Trust me. Take a look at few pictures here to see what I’m talking about.
If you live here, go enjoy an evening at Murphy’s Pub. If you aren’t then take a trip here! We were there recently when the sandwich in question was the special (which seems to be often). Two burger and fry meals, a couple of Captain Morgan and Diets plus a couple of beers. Didn’t break $30. Can’t beat it. As someone who eats at places like Nobu regularly, this is still my fave kinda thing!
If you’d like to work with us promoting your place/product, we would love to. From Brand ambassador, marketing and PR we work with you. From social ads and chatter, cheap one time blog links or full creative campaign. Also personal coaching and motivational seminars for your employees ( 35 years of trading/teaching/competing in martial arts & 20years Wall Street).
