The best Irish bars have a legend. Here's O'Keefe's: In 1972 or 1973, a car crashed through the bar, destroying much of an addition known as the Cedar Room. Among the casualties was a painting of a naked lady, which (as the story goes) is rumored to be the wife of late founder Bill O'Keefe. The painting still hangs in the bar, only with a patch covering a scar on her belly. Whether or not you believe the tale, there's no denying O'Keefe's is maybe the top spot in Pinellas to celebrate St. Patty's Day, with tons — literal tons — of corned beef and green beer for all. Slainte!
