This Sunday is Father’s Day, your chance to thank dad (or husband) for all the hard work he puts in the other 364 days of the year. It’s also your best chance to make up for all lousy gifts you’ve given him in the past. This year, get him something he’ll actually enjoy – a bottle of bourbon! We’ve put together a short list of five great bourbons guaranteed to put a smile on the old man’s face.

It might be for Saint Patrick’s Day, or it might just be a day of the week that ends in “Y”, whatever the reason, there’s never a bad time to visit an authentic Irish Pub. We’re going to run through five of the oldest and most historic in the United States, right now!

We firmly believe that America’s historic bars are the best place to learn her history. Sure, you can go to a museum and see relics behind glass. Go to Mount Vernon and wander the hallways and view history from behind ropes. But if you want to really experience it, and especially if you want to experience the Revolutionary War on our Independence Day, go to one (or preferably all) of these historic watering holes.

Prohibition was a dark stain on our wonderful history, and it forced many small bars across the country to close. But luckily, there were an abundance of them that stayed open as speakeasies. So where are the oldest? Well, here are five of the oldest and coolest speakeasies in the United States. Cheers!

There’s no controversy about which bar in Baltimore, Maryland is the oldest – the honor belongs to The Horse You Came in On.

Founded as a saloon (under a different name) in 1795, this bar has been quenching the thirst of sailors, shipbuilders, and all other kinds of miscreants since its opening. When it was founded at what is now called Fells Point, the port of Baltimore was an important shipping center for the young United States. Cargo from throughout the world arrived and offloaded here, including African slaves during the height of the American slave trade.
