Three Day Long St. Paddy's Day Celebration at J.G. McGuinness in Weston
Why celebrate St. Patrick's Day only on Sunday when you can have a three-day long party?
If your pub just happens to be named after Ireland's most famous beverage, then you've really got to bring down the house -- and J.G. McGuinness in Weston is hosting its second annual Irish Fest this weekend -- complete with live music, bagpipers, Irish dancers, local vendors, food, and (of course) lots of Guinness).
Danny Szymanski, co-owner of J.G. McGuinness, said the second annual festival will be bigger and better than last year's inagural event. "We're looking forward to a fantastic weekend of fun with great food, and awesome entertainment." Look at this schedule of events and make plans to check out everything from the live music to the pancake breakfast benefiting the U.S. Marine Corp Scholarship Foundation.
