The decoratin' is startin' and we're gearin' up for a grand hoolie like no other! 'Cause 'tis a Friday this year, which means ya got two days to recover before Monday.
But first - a wee bit o' trivia...
Did ya know:
Four leaf clovers aren't Irish at all. The Irish symbol of a three-leafed shamrock goes back to St. Paddy hisself when he was teachin' about the Holy Trinity and used the leaves to explain the Father, Son, and Holy Ghost as three parts of one whole.
Did ya further know: March 17th marks the day our dear St. Paddy died, in 461 AD
Did ya even further know: The first St. Paddy's Day parade occurred in 1737 in Boston, MA -- there's a lotta Irish folk there, for sure! Today, about 39% of Americans say they celebrate the day. 'N while that's about 122 million folks, it makes ya wonder what's wrong with the other 61%
Finally, I betcha didn't know: Paddy O'Quigley's is celebratin' our 27th St. Paddy's day...having been originally founded September 17, 1990 (exactly 6 months prior to St. Paddy's 1991)
So - What' "On Tap" for Friday, March 17:
- Our famous St. Paddy Breakfast will kick off at 9AM featuring a standard plate of Green Eggs, Bacon, Sausage, Cottage Fries, and a biscuit for $8.99 or $5.99 for the wee li'l ones
- Our special St. Paddy's Day Menu will start at 11AM featurin' traditional Irish fare alongside American Pub favorites to keep ya goin' all day
- The Corned Beef 'n Cabbage dinner will headline the menu on St. Paddy's and is available all week long startin' Monday March 13.
- Wanna watch some basketball? No worries, we'll have March Madness on all our TVs -- especially when our local boys are playin'
- Speakin' of playin' -- the music will be goin' all afternoon and into the night with DJ Lolly providin' the sounds again for us this year
- His only break will come when the Bagpipers are here - to be followed up by some Irish Dancers
- Drinks? For Sure! The inside bar and the patio bar will be goin' full throttle to keep everyone's whistle appropriately wetted
- That, of course, includes Green Beer, Judy's famous recipe Jell-O Shots, 'n a whole lot more

- Prizes to be given away include Golf at Ironhorse (good neighbors, they are), a Party O'Quigley certificate for a future rip-roarin' kind o' time, a Makers Mark adirondack-style chair, Apparel and more -- some of which we're still gettin' in!
