Denver, Colorado (PRWEB) February 19, 2014
Starting March 1, the social order in Denver shifts towards a singular purpose: connecting to all things Irish. This means wearing green, eating traditional Irish food, connecting with community through charity, and, of course, drinking Guinness and fantastic Irish whiskey. And Fadó Irish Pub in downtown Denver continues its tradition preparing yet again to deliver thousands of revelers to Denver’s definitive 2014 Paddy’s Day celebration.
This year the outdoor festival starts on March 15, Parade Day and doors open early for European sports, including 6 Nations Rugby, English Premier League, and a “beer and brekkie” (a pint and an Irish Breakfast). The party continues until March 17 featuring a full line up of Irish Dancers, traditional bag pipers, live music, multiple food tents and drink stations, offering new this year a Tullamore Dew signature cocktail, called The Paddy’s Punch, as well as a signature serve “Flexible Flask”! The flask will be pre-filled with the cocktail and set up at stations or hand sold by wait staff throughout the day. “Party like a Paddy” never sounded more right.
Fadó Irish Pub in Lodo has become a St Patrick’s Day Institution and the staff and management at the pub invite you to “commit yourself”.
Here’s what to expect during Denver’s most anticipated St. Paddy’s celebration:
Traditional Irish Session, Monday, March 10 at 8 p.m. - Local musicians gather to perform acoustic versions of classic Irish tunes. New Musicians always welcome.
