Bar to Carly Smithson: Don't Come Back!

3/6/2008 1:53 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Carly SmithsonThe bar where "Irish American Idol" contestant Carly Smithson used to work doesn't want her back -- because they want her to win!

TMZ spoke to some of Smithson's former co-workers at popular San Diego Irish bar The Field and they say Carly, who started out as a server and got promoted to bartender, is easy-going and good-natured. We're told her specialty was serving Guinness beer with hearts and shamrock shapes in the foam. That's talent, folks! Co-workers said Carly even picked up cooking tips from the bar's chef and loved making bacon-wrapped filet mignon. Paging PETA!

Despite releasing a failed album on MCA Records in 2001, we're told Carly often would sing at the bar after her Saturday night shift. Sounds like good "Idol" practice, because singing in front of a room full of drunks probably isn't that different than performing for Paula!

I would do her but I dont think she should be allowed to compete on AI because of her previous professional recording contract that bombed. She has nasty tattoos also and looks a little trampy.

I wish you would get off Paula's case..Iguess if someone's not "perfect" in the eyes of TMZ....Well then they seem to be fair game! Thats low...But remember what low lifes do....They are bottom feeders and crawl on their bellies in the dirt, like the serpent in the Garden of Eden...Check it out!

Not everyone from Ireland or people who drink in an Irish Bar are Drunks. We like to have a bit of Craic without being sterotyped. Is that ok??
