[LAWS] Irish Murder Mystery Book Discussion and Lunch

From the NY Times Article dated May 20, 2007.

"Tana French promises two whodunits for the price of one in her harrowing first novel, IN THE WOODS, by linking the contemporary homicide of a 12-year-old girl from a small town near Dublin with the misadventures of three children who vanished while playing in the same wooded area 20 years earlier. While French resolves only one of these twinned mysteries, the intricate design of her storytelling is something of its own reward — although that might not appease readers who, having been lured into these thickets, find themselves hanging from a limb."

Suggested by one of our book discussion participant recently, I thought this will be fun.  Everyone seems to like a good mystery, with Ireland and the woods as backdrops, written by an actress, very interesting combinations of things.

    I picked Tom Bergins. It received 4 stars on Yelp.. though that is not the end all be all of rating, it sounded like the place is less of a sports bar than the other two. If you have any additional thoughts of suggestions, please do post or send email.

    Hi everyone, St Patrick's Day and the LA Marathon are both on the 17th. I think we are okay on the 16th. Thank you for asking Jill.
    Thank you Estelle and Natalie for restaurant suggestions. I will pick one soon.

    Hasn't the date been switched to Sunday, the 17th to avoid the Marathon?

    Tom Bergains Tavern - 840 S Fairfax Ave, LA
    Sonny McLean's - 2615 Wilshire Blvd, Santa Monica
