I'm glad I read popville on Friday or I would have missed my last chance to hoist a Guinness at Murphy's Irish pub in Woodley Park. Murphy's Woodley Park location opened on St. Patrick's Day 1986, and closes its doors for good tonight. In truth, I always wished Murphy's was better than it was. I hoped it would turn into something like a local version of the old Red Onion in Monroe, Ohio, a neighborhood tavern that happened to serve fantastic food. But I've spent many enjoyable evenings at Murphy's, and I will miss having an old school bar in the neighborhood, and the cozy fireplace, and the snoozing leprechaun. I want that snoozing leprechaun! I hope the staff is able to find new jobs quickly.
