Don’t forget, the 12th Annual Mystic Irish Parade will be this Sunday, March 22 at 1pm. The bars will be hoppin’, but one of the favorites by far is irish pub, Harp n’ Hound. They will be sure to have extra Guinness on tap and plenty of party goers dressed in green singing Finnegan’s Wake by Dropkick Murphys. Get more information on the parade, including local sponsors, schedule of events and where to park, here.
To gear up for the parade, catch a special Irish happy hour at Harbour House from 3:00pm to 6:00pm this Friday, March 20th. Specials include Corned Beef and Cabbage, Irish Lamb Stew, Guinness Wings, Smithwick’s and Guinness Draft, Car Bombs and more! You will also be able to toast the Mystic Irish Parade Grand Marshal, Sandy McGugan, who will be making an appearance at 5:30 pm.
…and if you enjoyed one too many car bombs over the weekend treat yourself to a service at The Spa at Norwich Inn. The month of March is Hospitality Professional month with 25% off all spa services. Take advantage of this great deal and an excuse to be in a robe sipping cucumber water all day.
I leave you with one of my favorite Irish blessings:
Walls for the wind,
And a roof for the rain,
And drinks beside the fire —
Laughter to cheer you
And those you love near you,
And all that your heart may desire!
A pleasant day to ya darlin’,
