Celebrate St. Patrick's Day with Happy Hour ALL DAY!


March 11, 2019

This Sunday, March 17 is St. Patrick's Day - a holiday that commemorates the foremost patron saint of Ireland, Saint Patrick, and celebrates Irish culture in general.

In honor of St. Patrick's Day, we will be offering awesome treats throughout the weekend!

First and foremost, we will have Happy Hour ALL DAY on both Sat. March 16 & Sun. March 17 - no matter when you stop by you will be able to enjoy your favorite treats at special pricing!

Secondly, on Saturday night we will have live music from Kasual Six starting at 7pm. This Denver-based cover band rocks crowd-pleasing hits spanning many decades, including classic rock, country, Top 40, 80s music and even reggae. In addition to awesome music there will also be games, prizes and a costume contest, so don't forget to wear that green! (Legend has it that in the days of St. Patrick people believed wearing green made them invisible to leprechauns, who'd pinch anyone they could see. So they began pinching those who didn't wear green as a reminder that leprechauns could get them).

Finally, we will offer a delicious Corned Beef & Cabbage special to please the palate. It's the perfect meal to cap off a wonderful St. Patrick's Day celebration with!

We look forward to seeing you on March 16 & 17, and wish all of our customers Luck O' The Irish!

Fun Fact: Many cultures around the world eat pork on New Years’ Day for good luck. This is because pigs root around with their snouts moving in a forward motion, which symbolizes progress for the coming year.
Try it at Metro: Pork Schnitzel - Fried breaded pork loin topped with lemon beurre blanc/mashed potatoes/winter succotash ($16)

Fun Fact: Peppermint candy canes were invented in 1670, when a choirmaster commissioned candies shaped like a shepherd’s crook to give to children in hopes of keeping them quiet during a nativity service.
