Fifty-four kegs of Guinness? Check. Fifty pounds of corned beef? Check. Ten cases of new pint glasses and three cases of Irish coffee mugs? Check. Today marks the 26th St. Patrick's Day celebration for Angela Hanlon, owner of Molly Malone's Pub in the Fairfax district, one of the nation's most traditional Irish pubs. But Hanlon still gets so nervous that she practically chain-smokes her cigarettes and chain-drinks black coffee.

IN the 19 years since he's been living in the States, Young Dubliners frontman Keith Roberts has missed playing exactly one St. Patrick's Day. Three years ago in Miami, the band was booked for an outdoor gig. "It lashed rain and we didn't get to play," Roberts recalls. On Saturday, the Dubliners will be playing in San Diego. However, Roberts wants the L.A. faithful to know the band has not abandoned them.

I spotted him through the crowd on a busy Thursday evening at Finn McCool's Irish Pub in Santa Monica. He was tall and good-looking. Even better, he was accompanied by two friends, the perfect counterpoint for my own trio, which included my cousin and high school friend, all of us eager to socialize. I ordered a beer from the bartender to be sent his way, a move I had executed exactly once before, and only with some serious encouragement from a much bolder wing woman. Soon the six of us had bellied up to the bar, engaged in introductory conversation.

There's no mistaking Malarky's Irish Pub. The large white building with a Celtic green banner decorating the awning out front really looks the part--even now that another St. Patrick's Day has passed. And it's the same inside Malarky's, which has been serving patrons in Newport Beach for 14 years. A large, square full-service bar dominates the room. The bar top is made of rough-hammered copper and a brass rail is at foot level to help keep visitors solidly on their stools.

Need the luck of the Irish to squeeze into a pub on St. Patrick's Day? How about an Irish pub party at home for a change? It'll cut wear and tear--and hazards--of pub-hopping. "Although there are no statistics to suggest that St. Patrick's Day is any worse or safer than any other day of the week, the old saw is not to drive a vehicle when you've had too much to drink," said Cmdr. William Booth of the Los Angeles Police Department. It's also the law.

Sandwiched between an assortment of faceless office complexes in Fountain Valley is a slightly more distinctive building, a bar named after a racehorse. Strangers to Silky Sullivan's may drive up and down Slater Avenue several times before finding the place. But once you've been there, you're not likely to forget it. Silky Sullivan's is a singular, spirited gathering spot, part sports bar and part nightclub and, most strikingly, Orange County's most authentic Irish pub.

I don't think there's anyone who doesn't love a good story. Stories are the mind's magic mirror: They invite you to see yourself in the lives of others, and teach you to hope what you never could have imagined alone. In recent years, my wife, Leslie, and I have spent a month or so of every fall in a small house on the remote coast of West Cork in Ireland.

With its foot-stomping Irish music, traditional "fayre" and creamy pints of Guinness stout, the Kilkenny Pub is packed every night--with Germans. That's not surprising, since this Irish pub isn't in Cork or Tipperary; it's in Berlin. It's one of hundreds of Irish-style pubs that in recent years have sprung up outside Eire to offer slow-pulled pints of Guinness stout and "halves" of Harp lager.

A few months ago, after chef Brandon Boudet toured his newly acquired Mid-City pub Tom Bergin's, a man and his daughter stopped by to reminisce. As the man walked his 30-ish pregnant daughter around the wood-paneled room, he told her a secret. "He told her 'This is where I proposed to your mom,'" Boudet said. "And she just started crying. She said her mom had just passed away six months beforehand. There are some serious stories in this place. " For 63 years, the Irish cottage pub Tom Bergin's has stood out as a winsome incongruity amid the stone palaces of Museum Row near Wilshire Boulevard and Fairfax Avenue (the original Tom Bergin's was built in 1936 and moved to its current location 13 years later)

The singing is boisterous; the words are slurred. The vocalists are all male and all -- shall we say -- feeling no pain. They've flown all the way from Northern Ireland to Las Vegas for a "stag party," the Irish equivalent of a bachelor party. Isaac Mulholland, who'll be getting married at the end of March, and 12 buddies from a small town in County Down are determined to make the most of their long weekend in Sin City. So where do these 13 Irishmen end up on their first day in Vegas?

Los Angeles rivals New York City when it comes to transplants. And one thing all transplants share is a list of gripes about what was better about home. For New Yorkers it's bagels and pizza. For Austin, Texas, natives, BBQ. For Chicagoans, jazz. For Bostonians -- everything. But just scratch the surface and there's a little bit of everywhere in these United States of L.A. Read on and beat the homesick blues. AUSTIN BBQ worth the accompanying arteriosclerosis Flaunt Magazine music editor Trent Buckroyd was unable to locate good Tex-Mex-- "Californians just don't like that much cheese"-- but the native Texan found good "Tyler, Texas-style" barbecue at Dr. Hogly Wogly's in Van Nuys (8136 Sepulveda Blvd., [818]

IF you're at all interested in drinking good beer in L.A., sooner or later you'll find yourself in one of the city's British or Irish pubs. No other category of bar, lounge, restaurant or cafe takes beer as seriously. Even the most modest pubs have a dark-medium-light trio of stellar imports on tap, often Guinness, Bass and Harp. Many have a hard cider plus a couple of well-respected English ales such as Boddingtons, Fuller's and Newcastle.

In bars across America, stout is a bitter brew that Irish wannabes coax down their throats, their nostrils strategically pinched to kill the taste. "There's an art to pulling a pint which most bar people in the States, with all due respect, never got around to learning," said one Irish pub owner. Stout is said to account for no more than 0.10% of American beer sales--except on St. Patrick's Day, when sales of Guinness-brand stout are expected to hit 11 million glasses.

One of the nastier press comments was reported in the Daily Telegraph, quoting the Jornal do Brasil of Rio de Janeiro. "The anti-Irish columnist, writing under the pseudonym 'Verissimo,' says the Irish look like Norwegians pretending to be Englishmen and give the impression of having been selected by the 'HY' method."

In Taliban times, it would have been unimaginable: a fully stocked Irish pub serving whiskey and cold beer in the heart of Afghanistan's ultra-Islamic capital. In the post-Taliban era, Kabul's new Irish Club -- the country's only bar -- is still unthinkable, at least for Afghans. But it's a huge success with the many foreigners who are desperate for a little bit of nightlife.
