St. Patrick's Day 2018: The Rundown

St. Patrick's Day 2018: The Rundown

March 14, 2018

St. Patrick’s Day (the best day of the year, in our humble opinion) is this Saturday the 17th, and The Briar Group has a great lineup for you this year, as always! From Irish food specials and themed events to traditional Irish music, there are plenty of ways to celebrate this week.

Hurricane’s at the Garden kicked off the festivities last Friday with a trip giveaway party—to Ireland, of course! Congratulations to the winners, and thank you to everyone who joined us and entered the raffle. Sad you missed it? You’ve still got a shot at winning a trip to Jamaica! Learn more and RSVP here.

Did you catch Solas’ very own Chef Alex Galvis (pictured below) on Food Network’s latest Chopped episode, 'Luck of the Irish'? Solas hosted a watch party on Tuesday to show our support! Be on the lookout for re-runs.

Speaking of Irish food… there will be plenty of it this week! The Harp and M.J. O’Connor’s Park Plaza have been serving their corned beef specials since Monday. Now is the time to get in your early corned beef fix!

Ned Devine’s and M.J. O’Connor’s Waterfront will start serving corned beef dinners starting on Thursday, just as Anthem Kitchen & Bar begins offering selections from its St. Patrick’s Day menu. (Pictured below: corned beef dinner)

Solas will serve its full array of specials on Thursday (bangers & mash pizza, anyone!?), and will be joined on Friday by Glass House and The Harp.

On Saturday, the rest will join: Hurricane’s at the Garden, both M.J. O’Connor’s locations, Ned Devine’s, Glass House, The Harp, The Green Briar, Solas, and Anthem Kitchen & Bar will all be offering their full St. Patrick’s Day menus and specials. Check their websites for hours—some locations open early! (Pictured below: Irish breakfast)

Pssst... didn’t get your fill on Saturday? Ned Devine’s, Solas, and Anthem Kitchen & Bar will be serving specials on Sunday, too!
