You may have missed the Irish Festival last weekend, and even if you didn’t and enjoyed the cultural music and artisan products it showcased, you can’t skip the big day itself! St. Patrick’s Day is this Thursday, March 17th, and there are several ways to celebrate at local Queen Anne Restaurants…
This local bar does Irish year-round, so you can bet that their St. Paddy’s Day festivities are top o’ the pot! Sully’s will open early, at 12 p.m. noon on Thursday to get the day off to a great start. Although the bar and lounge are rather small, the back deck offers additional space – don’t stay away if the weather’s bad, since the deck will be open, covered, and heated! Oh, and Sully’s is reportedly the only Irish bar in Seattle that doesn’t charge cover on St. Paddy’s Day!
Head down the hill to T.S. McHugh’s to enjoy delicious Irish fare with tasty cultural dishes such as soda bread, fresh baked Pot Pies, Fish & Chips and more! Special for St. Patrick’s Day, the local Irish spot will have an Irish-focused menu for the day, featuring Corned Beef & Cabbage, Beef & Guinness Pie, and other cultural favorites. T.S. McHugh’s also stocks the most popular Irish beverages, including Harp Lager and Guinness Stout, a dozen Irish whiskies, and delicious Seattle’s Best Irish Coffee. Live music will be performed by Claypipe and Creeping Time for St. Patrick’s Day, starting in the early afternoon ’til the wee hours. There will be a cover charge for the bar, but not for the dining rooms.
Once again, these two Queen Anne restaurants (Crow is in SE Queen Anne and Betty is just north of Galer Street in upper Queen Anne) will be offering a special menu for St. Paddy’s Day! Enjoy a prix fixe menu of slow brined beef brisket with cabbage, baby red potatoes, carrots, horseradish cream, and their famous soda bread ($19/person). The featured dessert continues the theme with house-made Guinness ice cream topped with Jameson Irish whiskey caramel sauce. Reservations advised.
Happy St. Patrick’s Day!
