August 29: Messages, Kilt Night and Live Irish Music

Guinness in MinneapolisTonight: Kilt Night with Live Irish Music
Time: 9:00 pm

Happy Friday, everyone. I want to start off with some messages that have come into the site the past couple days. First, a right thank you from Bill Watkins who visited the Irish Fest in La Crosse and has toured about a bit in support of his new book, The Once and Future Celt (available at the pub!). Bill writes:

A big thanks to all we met on our recent tour of La Crosse (Wisconsin), Peoria (Illinois), and Galena (Illinois).

Bill, I hope while in Galena you stopped in for a cinnamon roll on the main strip there. If I were sentient this morning, I’d recall the name of the bakery, but it escapes me at the moment. (Sorry about that.)

And on sadder note, Eileen Dahill shares the following news:

Yes, sad but true – John Galaba did die this month (August). John Galaba played on the Sunday Quiz night team – “The Galwegians.” As you know, The Galwegians frequently enlist my mom – Ann (from Belfast) as their spiritual guide.
John is survived by his three children – Noreen, Kevin, and Dan. His wife Bernadette (from Galway) died in September of 2007. He will be sorely missed….

Thank you, Eileen, for sharing the notice. And, yes: he will be missed.


Join us for the weekly Kilt Night and Live Irish Music. Music starts around 8:30 or 9:00 pm.

Our live music is done just as it is back in the Isles: local session musicians set up at the front of the pub–gathered simply around a couple tables–and play without microphones and amps. They play as music is best played: unscripted and with musicians working off of one another. It’s an absolute joy.

Great craic and perfect for yer pint. So tell a tale, share a laugh, and get the weekend rollicking. Cheers!
