Saturday, February 6, 2016 5-9:30pm
O'Gara's Pub & Grill, Saint Paul
Join the Irish Fair of Minnesota for our Halfway to Irish Fair Party! Tickets are $15 in advance and $20 at the door. Get $5 off your ticket at the door when you bring a bag of non-perishable food items for Finnegans Reverse Food Truck! If you buy a presale ticket and bring a bag of donated food, you will receive 5 dollars back at the door.
From From 6 to 7pm enjoy the music of the Advanced Youth ensemble from the Center for Irish Music and dancers from O'Shea Irish Dance School. Our featured band will be The Tim Malloys. Equal parts pub and punk, the Tim Malloys fuse traditional Irish music with a raucous Minneapolis sound and sensibility. They're a cornerstone of the Twin Cities Celtic crossover scene, with five records released since their 1994 inception. Mashing up influences ranging from The Pogues to The Suburbs, the Tim Malloys are a bootlegger's dream of punk guitar, manic grooves, and rollicking callbacks. Rince na Chroi Irish Dancers will join the Malloys for a couple of songs!
In addition to the great music, there will be food and drink specials, and a silent auction with items ranging from fine whiskies and unique gift sets. There will also be our infamous Whiskey Walk several times throughout the evening. (Like a cake-walk, but for fine spirits!) All of these activities help to raise funds to keep the Irish Fair free! We hope you'll join us...
