Out and about in Clarendon this morning, looking for a spot of lunch before engaging in rampant consumerism, I walked past the hollowed out corpse of Virginia Hardware, which sat between Fillmore and Highland on Wilson Blvd in the heart of Clarendon. There was a new liquor license application, and a hiring sign…hmm, what’s this? Ri Ra? In Clarendon?
Holy crap, that brings the Irish Bar total up to four along a short span of Wilson Blvd. There’s the venerable Four Courts, the new Kitty O’Shea’s (formerly Joseph’s), and Molly Malone’s (formerly Taste of Casablanca) and now that adds Ri Ra (formerly Virginia Hardware) to the mix.
That’s a lot of craic, kids.
