Celebrate St. Patrick's Day in Peabody
Check out some of the special events happening this weekend in honor of everyone's favorite Irish saint.
Where do you love to wear green and show off your Irish pride each year? Whether it's a particular pub or restaurant, or an annual social gathering, we want to know.
Here are some places that we know are planning festivities, but if you know of some others, please let us know in the comments and we'll add them to the list:
- Tom Gould is the host for this year's first annual St. Patrick's Day Breakfast and Roast at City Hall on Saturday (9-11 a.m.).
- Flag raising: Prior to Saturday's festivities, Mayor Ted Bettencourt and members of the Ancient Order of Hibernians Division 11 will hoist the Irish flag outside City Hall (8 a.m.) in recognition of Irish-American Heritage Month.
- Paddy Kelly's: It starts with "Kegs & Eggs" Sunday morning, includes some live bagpiping and ends with DJ Smitty spinning some tunes that night. Check out the details here.
- Sylvan Street Grille: Starting at 1 p.m. on Sunday, there's a special "Guinness AND" promotion, along with some giveaways.
- Stonewood Tavern: The Newhall Crossing eatery will be having special drinks, appetizers, soups, entrees and desserts on the menu all weekend, including a Leprechaun (it's a drink), Corned Beef Burrito, Guinness French Onion Soup, Chocolate Irish Whiskey Cake and more. Roze and Jim of The Merj are also playing live at 6 p.m. on Sunday. More details here.
- The AOH: First up, Saturday (7-11 p.m.) is the annual corned beef and cabbage dinner, and of course, McGeney & Moore. Then on Sunday, there's a luncheon and comedy show from 1:30-3:30 p.m. There will be some Irish step dancing as well. Check out all the details here, there may still be tickets left.
- For the record, neither of those two events should be confused with the campaign fundraiser and St. Patrick's celebration also at the AOH with State Representative candidate Beverley Griffin Dunne. That's happening Friday night.
- St. Thomas the Apostle is holding its annual festivities over at the Knights of Columbus Hall in Salem, 94 Washington Sq., on Saturday. The church does straddle the city line after all. The party starts at 6 p.m. Adults are $20; kids are $10.
