Halloween party and Irish pub aren’t exactly synonymous, but that is exactly what happened on October 26, 2011. Packy’s Sports Pub in Lighthouse Point hosted a costume party complete with crazy costumes, a costume contest and rockin’ entertainment by Ghost of Gloria. You can see the insanity for yourself in the slideshow below. Remember to turn on the captions!
The song featured in the slide show is Ghost of Gloria’s own “Guard Dog”. According to their Facebook page, “Ghost of Gloria is a four piece modern rock band out of Fort Lauderdale, Florida. Since forming in the fall of 2007, the band has made it’s mark in the rock scene: the release of their critically acclaimed 7 song EP ‘Voices from the Red Room’, opening spots for bands like Godsmack and Fuel alongside their own touring, a coveted publishing deal with Stellar Songs/EMI Publishing, and more” . They currently have three EPs out on iTunes, CDBaby, and Amazon. “Guard Dog” is available on the Trial and Virtue Volume 2 EP.
Packy’s has their own parking lot for customers and there’s nearly always a place. There’s also never a cover or an age limit for the live entertainment, which they have every Friday and Saturday. The pub also serves as part restaurant, offering everything from soups to wings to chicken quesadillas to even flatbread pizzas. They also have the standard bar appetizers: potato skins, wings, mozzarella sticks and chili cheese fries.
The chili cheese fries, called “Packy’s Fries” on the menu, are the best chili cheese fries you will ever have. They are served with nacho cheese (the best part, in my opinion), chili, and bacon. There’s no risk of the fries getting soggy on you either – it’s never happened in the two times I’ve had them.
I wish I could say the same about the chicken quesadillas. The one time I had them, they were beyond bland. Order something else if you’re in the mood for dinner.
