My in-laws want to go to an Irish pub with "real live Irish music" on Friday night to celebrate St. Patrick's Day and, I don't know, Irish-ness. I love Matt Murphy's, but I've already taken them there twice and they want something new. I've been trying to sell them on going to the Publick House instead, but they're really fixated on this Irish thing.
My impish impulse is to take them to a dive bar in Southie and let them see a real Irish bar, yet I realize they would not find this entertaining. Any help?
