IRISH PUBS AROUND THE WORLD
In honor of St. Patrick's Day 2021, we thought you might enjoy a virtual visit to some of our favorite elevated (ahem!) establishments around the world. From all of us here at the new Hassett Glasser, P.C., here’s hoping we can get back to visiting the people and places we love as this year unfolds. In the meantime, please enjoy this slide show of Irish Pubs Around the World courtesy of Jamie Glasser and Myles Hassett.
Everest Base Camp
Sláinte! Top o' the World to you! A mountain of prayer flags symbolizes the hopes of many intrepid climbers who reach this outpost at 17,598 feet — an accomplishment in itself — before pushing for the ultimate peak. On his quest to climb the highest mountain on every continent, Jamie Glasser has also conquered Mt. Kilimanjaro (Tanzania, 19,341 ft.), Mt. Elbrus (Russia, 18,510 ft.) and Aconcagua (Argentina, 22,841 ft.). Still to come — but only if there’s an Irish pub en route — Puncak Jaya (Indonesia), Mt. Vinson (Antarctica) and Denali (Alaska).
The Irish Pub, Namche Bazaar, Nepal
The Irish Pub in Namche Bazaar, Nepal, en route to Mt. Everest, offers “Good Craic (Fun), Cheap Booze & Great Music.” At 11,302 feet (3,445m) above sea level, the outpost holds the lofty title of the highest Irish pub in the world.
