The city's cheapest carbombs?

About a year ago, I wrote a scene story for LIVE on specialty drinks. In it, I mentioned Crazy Lil's $3 carbombs.

A carbomb is Jameson Irish Whiskey and Bailey's Irish Cream mixed into a shot glass, dropped into a glass of Guinness and chugged straight down. They run anywhere from $6-$9, depending on where you order them.

Crazy Lil's deal is, you get a carbomb anytime for $3.

Granted, the glass is only two-thirds full of Guinness, and the shot is probably more Bailey's than Jameson, but still -- $3 for a carbomb?!?! 

When I'm out in Federal Hill, I'll drop in there sometimes for a quick carbomb or two. If it's a Friday or Saturday night, I usually have to muscle my way through packs of meatheads to get to the bar. But carbombs can be a delicious boost to a night out.

Seen a better carbomb special? Lemme know about it, and I'll try it.

I was reading a Citypaper at lunch today and there was this article about Beer Pong- which the bar review girl acted like she (and 99% of her readers) had never heard of! I was like, wait a minute- this was recently in Midnight Sun! Are you just a little late here!?!

To then top it off- one of the reviews in the food part was something that Dining @ Large touched on not too long ago!
