Finnegan’s Wake shut down

James Joyce

The Board of Licenses has voted to temporarily shut down Westminster Street’s Finnegan’s Wake. Apparently they somehow squeezed about 390 people into the place, which is meant to max out at 220, which seems like a pretty tight squeeze in its own right. Brawls and arrests and robberies ensued.

I’m not exactly crying over this, but for whatever reason, “The Wake” has become the football-viewing venue of choice for man

y DailyDosers. Despite the frequent night-time rowdiness, it hosts pretty relaxed Sunday afternoons, and is a bit off-the-beaten path. Let’s hope things get sorted out in time for me to watch the ‘Skins play the Dolphins this weekend.
