Johnny McTighes – Neighborhood Pub

jmBased on how often Cwall and I are hanging out, one might forget we live in two different states. He has joined us in Destin for the weekend and since it is 45 degrees out right now, we won’t get to spend much time beaching it. One of our favorite places to hang out is a little dive called Johnny McTighes. Many have heard of Highway 30-A and you might drive right past our little hangout without ever noticing it. McTighes is a little Irish pub in a small shopping center right past Adagio condos (where Tyson from All American Rejects lives). They stay open late and you can have some awesome food and drinks while playing darts, air hockey, or ski ball. It’s no secret that my favorite thing to do is the claw machine. I’ll let you know the trick to the machine there: there is no trick. The nice people at McTighes actually have a claw that works and you win every time. Last night, our plan was to get every stuffed animal in there but stopped at 6 when we got all the cute ones. I’ve ordered a little of everything there from pizza to the roast beef po boy to their amazing turkey sandwich. The prices are great and your order comes with a pile of tater tots. They also have a full bar and large draft beer selection. It’s one of the very few places my husband orders a drink and actually says it’s too strong for him. So next time you’re vacationing in Destin, joy riding through Seaside, or dining at the famous Red Bar, stop by McTighes for a night cap. You’ll probably see us there.    ~Dutch
