St. Paddy’s all weekend at Billy’s
Thomaston — Billy’s Tavern traditionally hosts a large, authentic St. Patrick’s Day Celebration and this year is no exception. With St. Paddy’s Day falling on a Sunday, the celebration will be all weekend long with Irish food and live Irish music Friday, Saturday and Sunday, March 15 through 17.
Friday night, local favorites The Alehouse String Band will entertain with its own brand of Celtic and traditional tunes, sure to put the crowd in a festive mood. Irish food, including Billy’s own corned beef and cabbage dinners, corned beef sandwiches and Irish egg roll, will be served. The music will start at 7 p.m., and admission is free.
Saturday night, there will be live Irish music by Belfast-based An-Grian. Again, Billy’s will be serving a full Irish menu all day. The music will start at 7 p.m., and admission is free.
St. Paddy’s Day itself will kick off at 10 a.m. with a full Irish breakfast, corned beef and cabbage dinners, Irish egg rolls and lots of Guinness drink specials. A weekend-capping night of phenomenal Irish music will be provided by the Boothbay Harbor-based Curlew, one of the most authentic Celtic bands playing in Maine, in a show not to be missed.
Billy’s Tavern is located behind the downtown business block, at the corner of Beechwood and Starr streets. For more information, call 354-1177 or visit billystavern.com.
