Bar-Hopping

It’s kung fu, not baseball, that shows above this bar.

he Squealing Pig is an off-the-beaten trail Irish Pub with exceptional comfort food and one special dessert item. But what makes this place truly unusual has nothing to do with the Emerald Isle. “Spin Kick Mondays” feature a 30-minute blast of heavy-metal music before a flurry of kung-fu movies that play until closing time. Watch teeth get knocked out on screen as you use your own to chomp on delicious fries that come in three flavors—original, curry, and Tuscan. Belgian ales, chocolate stouts, and oatmeal stouts are just some variety of the more than 100 beers served at the 50-foot bar. All the better to enjoy while watching Bruce Lee, Jackie Chan and Jet Li do their stuff. Moravek
