You’ll need food to support any St. Patrick’s Day celebrating you might do. Here are some ideas.
O’Gara’s is celebrating their 75th anniversary this year with a St. Paddy’s tent party blowout. You can get corned beef and cabbage, a Shamrock burger, or other Irish goodies. Accompany it with some beer or a good whisky.
This week they’re serving music with their food. Check their website for additional events, but here’s their schedule for the day itself.
