We’re still working out some details for our big St. Patrick’s Day party, but here’s what we’ve got so far…
AT HQ GWANGAN
We’ll be open at 11:00 for early drinkers. I will do my best to maintain pace with you throughout the day, God willing.
At 5:00, we’ll have a special performance by the New McMakeoli Brothers, a traditional Irish band made up of some of the best Busan musicians–Chris Tharp, Gino Brann, Conor Doran, and Patrick Carle–who play some honest-to-goodness Irish music–folk songs, drinking songs, rock songs. This is a brand-new incarnation of a group that always brings the house down each St. Patrick’s Day.
At 8:00, The Flogging Marys will be playing a full set of Irish punk and rock songs by groups like the Dropkick Murphys, Thin Lizzy and more!
Round 5 of Six Nations Rugby will be on the bar TV and projector screen as well, live and in HD–here’s the schedule for that:
Scotland VS Italy 9:30 PM
France VS Wales 11:45 PM
Ireland VS England 2:00 AM
Did I mention drink specials? Not yet? Well, we’ve got’em:
Green Beer – 3000
Irish Coffee – 6000
Jameson – 4500
Guinness Cans – 5000
Guinness Bombs (Guinness with a half-Jameson/half-Baileys shot) – 8000
Shamrock Shots – 4000
Baby Guinness Shots – 4000
And food specials:
Beef and Guinness Stew
Discounted Appetizer Platters
And big raffle prizes! Special Edition Bottles of Jameson! Official Jameson Green Glass Tumblers! HQ Bar Gift Cards! If you buy a drink, you get a raffle ticket… if you buy two drinks, you get two raffle tickets… if you buy eight drinks, guess how many raffle tickets you get? EIGHT!!! Raffle winners will be announced right before the Ireland/England match.
AT HQ KSU
We’ll be open at 7:00 for anyone who wants a more cozy place to get ossified. We’ll have all the same drink specials there, but probably a less raucous atmosphere. I’ll probably be completely incapacitated at that point, so you might just be able to take over the bar!
