Green card or not, it’s always a lot of fun to hit the town in celebration of America’s favourite holiday.

After the USA’s dramatic World Cup loss on Tuesday commiserations are in order and there more than a few places to get your fix of red, white and blue this weekend. While you might not be pledging allegiance just yet, town is brimming with patriotic opportunities to guzzle, scoff and enjoy a bite of states. Just make sure you don’t end up in one!

Caffeine guzzlers know 3fe as the best place to pick up their perfect coffee but tomorrow they are getting set to roll out dozens of hot dogs in celebration of Independence Day.

“We will be doing fabulous hot dogs with home smoked frankfurters from Ed Hick butchers in a beautiful soft roll from Tartine bakery with homemade pickle relish, manky cheese sauce, caramelised onions, ketchup and mustard,” said head chef Hilary O’Hagan.

“It's our version of that delicious stuff people slather on their nachos and fries at 3am in the morning,” she said.

Dillingers

Ranelagh favourite Dillinger’s is getting set to host a mammoth backyard barbecue tomorrow. Hot dogs, BBQ ribs, fried chicken and corn on the cob with sides of potato salad and beans are all on the agenda for €17.76 (something tells us the price isn’t just a coincidence). Finish off the night with an all American apple pie. Scrumptious alert.

Ely Bar & Brasserie

This Friday, Ely Bar & Brasserie in the IFSC are hosting a waterfront barbecue and are set to fire up the grill at 4pm. Serving up organic beef burgers from the Burren, hotdogs and southern style chicken skewers makes mouths water at just the thought. Wash it all down with craftfully chosen Kentucky beers or if that’s not your thing ‘The 4th Martini’ might be more up your street. They boast that the evening will be ‘un-brew-lievable.’

Sin É

 

Sometimes you just have to wing it and that’s exactly what’s going down at Sin É tomorrow evening. While USA fans might still be revelling in despair, football fans will be delighted to hear that both matches will be on upstairs. For those hoping to celebrate the 4th of July in true style, Independence Day starring Will Smith will be screened downstairs in the Cave. Tuck into some pulled pork or opt for a red cup pitcher of beer for €10 or a Crafty Brewdog bucket for €20.
