Another Irish bar bites the dust. The Squealing Pig has shut its doors at 2700 East Third Avenue, and its phone number is disconnected. While the Pig wasn't a classic Irish bar, as described by Jason Sheehan in How to Create a Great Irish Bar
, and didn't even come as close as the Auld Dubliner
, which closed last month, it was a comfortable, casual spot in Cherry Creek -- and there aren't many of those left.
One remaining option on the edge of the 'hood: the Irish Hound
, at 575 St. Paul Street.
