It’s Saint David’s Day, friends. He–Dewi Sant–is the Patron Saint of Wales. So when you pop up to Merlins today, be sure to toast Wales, Saint David, and our publican John Dingley. Yer man hails from Builth Wells, Wales and he’s a fine soul.
A note about St. David’s Day: Leeks are associated with the Welsh and this day. So get yourself to the store and pick up a leek in celebration. Maybe even bring it to the pub with you, if only for the lark!
* We’ve got brunch from 9 am – 2 pm. Our traditional Irish breakfast is outstanding, please know. And we’re just as good with classic American fare too.
* Papa John and the Hot Club of East Lake will be in the pub tonight. They deliver some of the finest jazz in the Twin Cities. Music starts at 9 pm. We’ll see you soon!
