We’re all beer-swillin’, erin go brach-ing, Irish folk on St. Patrick’s Day, right? Hey, I love a holiday that requires no more of me than donning some green clothing, downing a beer or two and handling the flock of frisky leprechauns  who follow me home. You do see them too, right?

If it’s St. Patrick’s Day, it’s Murphy’s restaurant for us. Every year Tom Murphy hires Irish dancers who perform throughout the restaurant and he serves up some delicious Irish fare that includes Murphy’s Corn Beef Cabbage and Irish Whiskey Bread Pudding. This year he is also welcoming Judith McLoughlin, an Irish chef and author of The Shamrock and Peach. Judith, who is also a cooking instructor, will prepare Guinness braised beef short ribs and other specialties.

Sure every bar is town claims to be Irish on March 17, but if you want the authentic experience, join us at Murphy’s. We’ll be in the ones in green.
