As it did last year, Hennessy’s Irish Pub on Paseo Montejo is turning St. Patrick’s Day into a four-day festival. Well, five days if you count the Monday night movie, featuring “The Commitments”, but more on that in a moment.
The festivities begin Friday night March 13 at 8:00 pm, with Irish singing and dancing, games, contests, Irish cuisine, and of course, green beer. Music will be by the Twangs, an assortment of Irish musicians, and Merida’s own Gina Osorno and Copy/Paste performing Irish ballads.
The fun continues Saturday March 14 at 8:00 pm, followed by Sunday March 15 at 5:00 pm, with tug-o-war contests, and other trials designed to test the contestants’ ability to consume certain beverages. Then on Monday March 16, Hennessy’s presents the quintessential Irish movie, The Commitments, at 7:00 pm in the Polo Bar.
But the main event is still to come: Tuesday March 17, St. Patrick’s Day, beginning at 2:00 pm, with more contests, Irish singing and dancing, and more trials of the adult beverage variety. On Tuesday, we are all Irish.
