PODCAST: Downtown’s changing bar culture (and holiday miracle) w/ The Ordinarie’s Christy Caldwell

From managing one of the state’s leading buyers of Guinness—no joke: Auld Dubliner in DTLB is usually #2 or #3 in the state for the amount of Guinness they buy and sell—to creating The Ordinarie, Christy Caldwell has built up a name in and out of the Irish community along with altering the local bar scene. That name has also reached New York, where Miracle Pop-up, one of the country’s most recognized holiday pop-up bar brands, decided for the first time it wanted in on the Long Beach scene by turning The Ordinarie into a “Miracle at The Ordinarie.” Listen to Brian Addison and Sarah Bennett explore American hospitality, cocktails, holiday kitsch, Irish bars, the importance of immigrants, and more on this all-new episode of Suppertime in the LBC.
