IrishCentral's premier pub, mingling and networking event on Nov. 19 proved what happens when our readers and staff members mingle over $2 drinks — a lot of fun was had by all.

The introductory night for our audience to "Join the Irish Click" gave us insight into our readers and their interest in meeting one another.

A diverse bunch they are, ranging from their 20s to their 40s, from all walks of life. We all had a great night, and found that we have much in common — not just pride in our Irish heritage.

Despite the last-minute notice, the turnout was impressive and we look forward to seeing everyone again — but with even more friends!

Our next event is taking place on Thursday, Dec. 10 at Legends Bar, a favorite haunt of many Irish in NYC. Legends is at 6 W. 33 St.  between 5th and 6th Avenues.

There will be drink specials ($4 drinks and drafts sound good?) — for those of you who name-drop. Just say "IrishCentral" at the door, and you'll get a green wristband, which might as well be a golden ticket, since it will give you access to all those drinks specials.

Bring anyone you know who might appreciate a night of cheap drinks, friendly Irish welcomes, competition entries, meeting new friends and maybe more!

Looking forward to it already!
