Happy days to you! All of us here at Merlins hope that you are enjoying this extended St. Patrick’s Day celebration. So: our neighbors in the good city of St. Paul are holding the St. Patrickâ€™s Day Parade with the Shamrock Queen, Megan Kelly. We wish her congratulations on the honor. Slainte!
But after the fun winds down in St. Paul, get on over the Merlins Rest where the rest of us are gathering to celebrate the holiday as requested by the Catholic Church: on a weekend! We’ll also have plenty of fun on Monday, of course, but today is packed with good cheer.
In addition to the expected revelry and Irish fun, two things of note for the evening:
* Our good friends from Finneganâ€™s will arrive on the Finnegan’s bus. This annual tour of good will and tasty pints is loads of fun. We love to have ’em here, and we hope you’ll get to know ’em. Great craic.
* We’ve also got the Hot Club of East Lake in the pub with Papa John at 9 pm. So it’s going to be a spirited Saturday.
SUNDAY PUB QUIZ
Don’t forget! We’ve got brunch being served from 9 am – 2 pm on Sunday and we’re holding the weekly pub quiz at 8 pm sharpish with our Welsh publican John Dingley. He’s a right fine tenor too. Maybe you can shake a song out of him?
MONDAY, ST. PATRICK’S DAY
Keep telling the tales!
