Irish Eyes are smilin' this September with lots of specials at Mulligan's on the Blue in Wailea.
"Our Irish happy hour runs every day from 4 to 6 p.m.," says owner Mike O'Dwyer, the proud new dad of son, Cian. "We are back to our original two-for-one pupus as well as 50 percent off our Irish beers."
The traditional pub fare pupu menu includes spinach and artichoke dip, fried ahi poke, spicy wings with blue cheese and celery, dry-rubbed baby back ribs with house-made apple barbecue sauce; firecracker shrimp, garlic fries, Cajun seared ahi, and trio of sliders.
