Carrington’s Sports Bar & Grill:
February 20, 2009

carringtons_2009-02-20_01Three-week-old Carrington’s Sports Bar & Grill, on spot once filled by Jay Love’s Hooligan’s Pub & Oyster Bar (a.k.a. Big Hoolie’s), offers live music on Fridays and Saturdays (for other, see photo of schedule near page bottom), bar, food, stage, DJ booth, TVs, pool tables and more. Along with wine, Ana had a Honey Mustard Chicken Sandwich while I attacked a Blackened Mahi Mahi Sandwich. Some former Hooligan’s patrons were disappointed that there is no smoking but we and others cheered. Location at Dadeland Plaza provides ample well-lit parking.

Update 2010-07-17: Carrington’s is closed. The outdoor signage is gone. Window posters read that it will be replaced by “The Joint Bar & Grill” and that there will be live music.

Stage. Overhead stage lights were supplemented with Travler’s own lights. At distant left, below blue lights, is a bar.
