Stamford, CT (PRWEB) February 25, 2013
Tigín Irish Pub & Restaurant (Tigín), located on Bedford Street in Stamford will take on a "Lost Weekend" theme this year for its weekend long St. Patrick's Day party. Doors open on St. Patrick’s Day at 10am and the huge heated party tent opens at noon. The St. Patrick's Day party is an all-day extravaganza of the best mix of Irish music, food and entertainment.
The Lost Weekend starts at Tigín on Saturday, March 16, or what has come to be known as St. Practice Day. Doors open at 10am and the huge outdoor party tent opens at 8pm. Also, bringing new meaning to Super Saturday, Tigín will feature live 6 Nations Rugby starting with Italy v. Ireland at 10:30am.
As usual, the authentic Irish pub will proudly begin celebrating St. Patrick’s Day long before March 17 with events like a Parade Day celebration, an Irish Themed Pub Quiz and Jameson whiskey tasting. This year, guests will be hoping to inherit some of that infamous Irish luck, as the annual St. Patrick’s Day celebration features a chance to win an all-expenses paid vacation for two to Ireland. The winner will receive flights, hotel and a tour of the Guinness Brewery at St. James Gate in Dublin. All you have to do to enter the contest is sign up for the Tigín email list.
