A new Irish pub, ~KELLEY'S TAVERN~, will be opening in the old Blue Triangle space in the Marina on Friday, March 17, just in time for that day of bad behavior, St. Patrick's Day. The owners are John Kelley and Scott Loose (co-owners of U Street Lounge on Union St.), Darren Matte, and John Christiansen. The look will be old-world tavern doing a time warp with a modern-day lounge, so think fireplace and stained glass lampshades meet a number of flat screen TVs (just in time World Cup). I'll have another Guinness, mate.

The owners of ~COIT LIQUORS~ in North Beach, Linda and Jeff Branco, now have a wine tasting bar set up in the front. So if you want to find a good Italian or French or Cali wine to go with your neighborhood takeout, this is a fun place to check out some of the 14 rotating wines they have open—you can either get a taste or a glass, or the whole bottle, if you really dig it. 585 Columbus Ave. at Union St., 415-986-4036.
