Hennessey's Tavern in MB won with 47 percent of the vote; tying for second place with 11 percent of votes are , , and . Third place with 5 percent of the vote goes to .

Hennessey's, Ercole's and Shellback are within walking distance of each other in downtown Manhattan Beach. Baja Sharkeez and OB's Pub & Grill are within walking distance of one another in North Manhattan Beach. Grunion's Sports Bar & Grill has free parking in a lot.

Whatever you do, don't drink and drive. A South Bay regional patrol will be covering the South Bay to address St. Patrick's Day drinking and driving. Take a cab if you think your driving abilities are impaired.

Hi Jeff, Voting ended at 9 a.m. on Friday as the article stated it would, so the results, which I have a record of, were compiled form voting that had been done by that time. Too bad the OB's fans didn't vote sooner. The poll ran all week long.
