Editorial Review of Emerald Isle

They say at the end of every rainbow, you'll find a pot of gold. At Emerald Isle, a bucket of Miller Lite works just as well.

First timers may experience culture shock at first glance. Don't gawk too long at the few hairstyles that somehow survived past the early '90s; that's just plain rude. Instead, use the opportunity and appreciate the fashion misses in all their glory: varsity hooded-sweatshirts, backward baseball caps and stonewashed regular-fit jeans over grass-stained New Balance sneakers.

You don't have to mingle here if it's not your thing. Everyone seems to establish his or her own spot, from the college students in town for the weekend to the straggler adorned in plaid staring into space. Gather with your own group beside homey brick walls near the bar, watch the game and cheer as loud as you'd like. If the raucous crowd unsettles you, head over to the other side of the bar; a separate lounge area comes equipped with a collection of sports-themed arcade games and a couple of flat screens.

Food options are a wrap, literally. Choose from a list of six wraps all priced between $4.75 and $5.50. Other choices include sandwiches ($3.25-$6.95), pizza ($8.95-$9.50), burgers ($5.50-$7.50), salads ($3.50-$5.75) and Mexican food ($3-$6).

Average cost: <$10
