Is the Blarney Stone Closed for Good?!
If you’ve walked by the Blarney Stone on 3rd Ave. (btw 44+45th) recently, you’ve probably noticed that it’s closed for renovations. Well, a man standing outside this week who seemed to be in the know said that the bar isn’t just closed for renovation, but has in fact been sold and will re-open as a different establishment. Apparently the owners got an offer that they just couldn’t refuse. None of this is confirmed, but the Blarney Stone has proven to be a surprisingly good place to grab lunch (and reasonably priced craft beer), so if the news is true, it’s a sad day indeed.
