life of reilly
Born during a bar fight in Devlin, Ireland, Reilly came into this world swinging. The first day of his life, he lost an eye took a man’s life and developed an insatiable appetite for whiskey. At the age of two, Reilly’s father lost him in a poker game. Six months later, Reilly won himself back.
When he was three years old, prohibition hit the United States and Reilly became enraged at the thought of Americans going thirsty. Hell – bent on supplying illegal spirits to the American people, he stowed away on a whiskey boat bound for the dry nation. Reilly was now in a strange land, armed with nothing but a family recipe for Irish whiskey and a smuggler’s wit. He quickly organized a gang of misfits known as the Black Eye Society and took over the routes of the nation’s milkmen. This enabled him to deliver whiskey in a cleverly disguised milk bottles right to people’s front doors.
Before he was a teenager, Reilly became an underground legend. His name was whispered in back alleys and speakeasies across the nation, and songs were sugn to tell of his tales. The style of these songs would later become known as Rock and Roll and the tunes can still be heard today, blaring out of the Irish rock pub that bears his name.
“drink up; you’re half the man my mother was.”
-Reilly, age 5 1/2
“where the hell is my crazy straw?”
-Reilly, age 4
COMMITMENT TO CHARITY
Through Reilly’s efforts, $78,000 in donations have been made to charity since opening. It is Reilly’s goal to host at least one charity event each month. In addition, when select menu items are ordered, Reilly will donate a portion to Pencils of Promise. Reilly is committed to the community and welcomes inquiries to see how we can join forces to help your organization.
Rock & Reilly’s is concerned with the environment inside and outside the bar. Reilly’s works closely with Athens Services to maximize the recycling of paper, glass, aluminum cans, plastic bottles and cardboard boxes.
One of the many things we love about our employees, is they care about the community. Rock & Reilly’s is more than a restaurant and bar, it is a platform for giving back.
“never cry over spilt milk. it could’ve been whiskey.”
-Reilly to his Wet-Nurse, 1911
