“Ól, Céol agus Craic!” (A good pint, great music and wonderful entertainment.) —Frank O’Dowd, 1902-2000
Join the folks at Frank O’Dowd’s Irish Pub & Grill for their St. Patrick’s Celebration—a multi-day celebration filled with entertainment, music, specialty drinks and Irish food!
Katie Sullivan anchors a full day of entertainment Friday, March 17 with two rousing sets of traditional Irish songs and energetic folk/rock tunes from 2:00-5:00 p.m. and 6:00-11:00 p.m.
The fun continues Saturday, March 18 with another day of revelry featuring live music and bagpipers from 12:00-2:00 p.m. Meghan Davis will play hits from the past five decades from 2:00-5:00 p.m., followed with another evening performance by Katie Sullivan from 7:30 p.m. until close. Her lively renditions of favorite Irish, blues, and American folk-rock music get audiences on stage singing and dancing along.
St. Patrick’s Menu
Frank O’Dowd’s will serve up a traditional, hot Irish breakfast both days from 7:00-10:30 a.m. Complete with meats (bangers, rashers, and black pudding) imported from Ireland, eggs, American sausage, mushrooms, oven-roasted tomatoes, fresh baked scones, granola, English muffins, yogurt, fresh fruit, coffee, tea, milk, and juice.
At 11:30 a.m. the bar and grill will begin its St. Patty’s lunch service. A special menu available for lunch and dinner features exciting St. Patrick’s Day items, plus some Frank O’Dowd’s favorites.
Fish ‘n’ Chips are hand breaded and lightly seasoned fish fillet with French fries, tartar and malt vinegar. The delicious Shepherd’s Pie is ground beef, onions, carrots, and peas baked with a Bisto gravy topped with mashed potatoes. And don’t forget the Corned Beef & Cabbage – a fresh, hand-trimmed corned beef brisket served with steamed cabbage, baby red potatoes and a seasonal vegetable.
Not much is better than a Guinness on this festive Irish holiday, except maybe one of Frank O’Dowd’s Keltic Kocktails! In addition to drink specials, they’ll be serving 16 draught beers at their full bar. The Dirty Leprechaun (Midori, Amaretto, cream and Sprite served in a tall glass) and the Irish Margarita (Tequila, Triple Sec, sour, lime juice and Harp served in a salt rimmed glass) are surefire ways to get the festivities going right.
