DE VERE’S TO HOST TWO ST. PATRICK’S DAY PARTIES IN ONE DAY!
February 17th, 2011 | Comments (1)
This year, de Vere’s Irish Pub will host not one but two St. Patrick’s Day parties in one day! Mark your calendars for March 17 and get ready for the de Vere’s Pub Party and the de Vere’s Party in the Park.
The de Vere’s family invites you to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day in true Irish fashion at the de Vere’s Pub Party, located at the historic Firestone Building at 16th & L.
“The de Vere’s Pub Party is all about the authentic Irish pub experience,” said owner Henry de Vere White. “You can enjoy the beautiful woodwork, family heirlooms, friendly banter, and of course, the perfect pint of Guinness—a specialty we’ve mastered.”
The pub doors will open at 8 am and their famous Irish coffees will be piping hot and ready to serve. At 11 am, the pub will close down the sidewalks and open the outside venue, which will include traditional Irish fare including corned beef and cabbage. The stage will feature live Irish entertainment with music and dancers throughout the day.
If you would rather go to an outdoor charity concert event then head to Cesar Chavez Plaza for the ultimate St. Patrick’s Day festival. The de Vere’s St. Patrick’s Day Party in the Park takes place from 10 am to 10 pm.
“We created this event to bring the community together, and L Street just couldn’t provide enough space for the event. We think Cesar Chavez Plaza will provide us with a large enough area so that we don’t have to turn people away,” said owner Simon de Vere White. “By moving the event to the park, we can do more good for our charity partner, give better service, and have more space to enjoy the celebration. But have no fear, we still are opening our doors and will create a great experience for our guests at our pub!”
Proceeds from the event will benefit Maryhouse, a daytime women and children’s homeless shelter at Loaves and Fishes. Maryhouse provides much needed support and services for this vulnerable population including the Hot Breakfast Meal Program and the Mustard Seed School.
The de Vere’s St. Patrick’s Day Party in the Park, coupled with the party at their family’s pub, will end Sacramento’s week long celebration which includes the Old Sacramento St. Patrick’s Day Parade on March 12, Shamrock’n Half Marathon on March 13, St. Baldrick’s Day on March 14, and a St. Patrick’s Day celebration at de Vere’s Irish Pub on March 17.
