If you’re on the Ave at night and don’t hop inside Finn McCool’s, were you even on the Ave? It’s an Irish pub with a lot going on and a mostly-collegiate clientele. Which means you’re in for some strong well drinks, beer pong, karaoke contests, and trivia. A visit here if you attend UW (or are pretending you do) is a Seattle rite of passage.
