An Eire Affair

There's bound to have been gallons upon gallons of spilled Smithwick's and Guinness Stout throughout the course of the 20 years convivial Clematis Street Irish bar O'Shea's Pub has been open. This Saturday, clicking pint glasses are destined to spill even more Irish Stout as the welcoming 500-block locale rings in its 20-year anniversary. Scheduled as a proper Celtic shebang, this party will include bagpipers, Irish dancers, and guest bartenders from O'Shea's years of yore. Additionally, organizers have arranged a special one-off reunion of Doorway 27. Although not quite Irish, in the early to mid-'00s, this surf-rock-meets-pop-punk group was bigger than bangers and mash in West Palm Beach. Doorway 27 is not the only group to reunite this night; O'Shea's spectacular house band from the past decade, Innisfree, is also set to take the stage. Also on the packed bill are festive merrymakers the People Upstairs, pint-sized teen rockers Jumbo Shrimp, and a special DJ set from local nightlife impresario Rodney Mayo. The festivities start at 3 p.m. Saturday at O'Shea's Pub, located at 531 Clematis St. in West Palm Beach. Free to attend. Visit o­sheaspub.com, or call 561-833-3865.
