Bourbon-glazed tips and bourbon-glazed you in JP

Fresh off bringing a second iteration of his popular Irish pub to Rossie Village, the dude behind Napper Tandy's is already doubling down on the neighborhood, just now unveiling a 50-seater named after the Irish-American playwright known for his comedy Ah, Wilderness!, presumably about taking the Orange Line to Forest Hills. What You're Looking At: Rocking retractable windows that allow your pale, Irish skin to burn even while indoors, the completely overhauled former barber shop's now heavy on music memorabilia and boasts a 16-seat cherry wood bar, plus exposed brick walls that, like Sal DiMasi, were once on the outside, and still feature original vintage billboard ads. What You're Eating: Start with mussels diablo, curried fries, and a crock of cheese chili, before further increasing your likelihood of adult-onset diabetes and obstructive sleep apnea with bourbon-glazed turkey tips, and the pulled pork/cheddar jack/fried onion-topped Southern Hospitality pizza.What You're Drinking: Partake of 20 draft suds including Slumbrew Happy Sol & Julius Echter, and a handful of crafty bottles (Left Hand Milk Stout, Dale's, etc.), before lowering the stakes with a cocktail like the Forest Hill Fantasy, which is heavy on rum/fantastical scenarios somehow not involving public transportation.
