When you're near San Diego State University, have some effin' fun at Effin's Pub & Grill

By

Some day I'm going to get into a car accident. I just know it.

Whenever I'm out and about, I'm distracted by the signs of various businesses as I drive by them.

I like to see not only the names of businesses but any exterior marketing that they might be doing.

There's an Irish bar over near San Diego State University called Effin's Pub and Grill. I don't know if the owner's name is Effin, but I've always liked innuendos, and if you think hard enough, remembering that you're in college student territory, you can imagine all the effin language in this Irish bar, and the bar certainly plays it up.

Effin's Pub & GrillYou can order "great big effin' tacos"; barbecue wings that are "effin' spicy"; an extra large one-topping pizza for just $9.99, a "great effin' deal"; or a pizza with everything on it, "the effin' works."

There are daily specials, such as Thursdays when you can participate in "the effin' tradition" of $2 pints of beer and $1 off drinks.

When you're finished eating, or if you just want to drink, play pool, watch sports on HDTV's you can always order "another effin' beer"!

Here's to having a lot of effin' fun at Effin's Pub & Grill!

Go visit them at 6164 El Cajon Boulevard. If you're under 21, you can still enjoy the Irish pub until 9:00 p.m., but, of course, you can't have an effin' drink with effin' alcohol in it!

Sounds like a fun place! I love Irish Pubs and what a cute name!  You better keep your eyes on the road though....don't want you to get any fender benders!  Oh and by the effin way, you did steer clear of the tattoo parlor I assume......

Hey, when you are done effin drinking and are effin plowed, you can go to the effin tattoo parlor and have an effin great time there too!

I am always like a bobblehead in the car, looking for something to take a picture of. No one wants to drive with me anymore...

Your effin cat looks like you tied it in a knot!  I KNOW you didn't do that!  I'm a big fan of roadside signs and miscellanea- drives Sara crazy, so I have to glance quickly, while she isn't looking!  Thanks for the distraction! -Steve

It doesn't look like much, but it's sure a clever name!

I think this is an Irish Pub tradition...always some humor. Kilkenny's inTulsa (He bought out the fixtures of a pub in Ireland and rebuilt it in Tulsa) has some cute twists on the menu, like "Fettucine O'fredo".

Thanks for sharing...

Love it...it sure works for a college town !  One time a while ago we were in Elko Nevada..visiting the casinos...oh surprise...and while David was being entertained at the crap table, I had gone to bed early to hit the machines at 5 am when I could have them to myself....and out of boredom decided to read to yellow page...to find...the Tiny Hiney Diaper Service....it still makes me laugh !
