Early evening: Knit Night
Time: 4:00 – 7:00 pm
Tonight: Kilt Night with Live Irish Music
Time: 8:30 pm
It seems a curious sight, but it’s an absolute blast. Knitters from the Twin Cities gather here at Merlins every month to trade stories, further their skills, and, all in all, take down a few pints. We love ‘em dearly.
For those interested in learning more or perhaps joining them, they’ll be here 4:00 – 7:00 pm. All are welcomed.
Stay warm and happy with the sounds of traditional Irish music and the taste of premier pub food and perfectly poured pints. We’ve got it all for you on Fridays.
Join us for the weekly hoolie, friends, and the live Irish music in the traditional Isles-pub style: no mics, no amps. Just some of the Cities’ finest Irish session musicians playing about a table or two in the bar and mingling with the people. Great tunes and a really wonderful way to spirit into the weekend. Grab a Guinness and a cottage pie or maybe some Welsh lollipops and enjoy.
SONGS FOR THE SOLSTICE
Songs for the Solstice, featuring local folk rock band Rève du faun, will be presented at 9 p.m., Wednesday, December 17 at Merlin’s Rest. The event is a benefit on behalf of Twin Cities Pagan Pride. Rève du faun’s repertoire includes popular tunes from the 17th through the 20th centuries. Their signature sound of female harmonies are influenced by traditional Celtic music, classic rock and roll, and the folk movement of the 1950s and ’60s.The band makes their home in the Twin Cities and performs annually at the Minnesota Renaissance Festival. In 2004, the band won the title of “Best Musical Act.” Performing with the group will be special guest drummer Steve Spaise, another popular Twin Cities musical artist.
