Throughout the month of March, you can enjoy a Peppermint Patty latte at the Hub Coffehouse and from-scratch sugar cookies or a mint chocolate cupcake from Chocolate-N-More. Jane Barleycorn’s Market and Bar will have changing weekly menus featuring Irish cuisine, including Guinness and steak pot pie, Irish lamb stew, bangers and mash, and Irish coffee mousse. Plenty of other restaurants, including Cue on Main, Captain Franks Hotdog Emporium, and Brother’s Bar-B-Que will have their own unique spin on Irish-themed food and drink, too.  


Guinness_barIf you’re looking for a place to let out your inner Irishman (or woman!), check out Beer Engine, our craft microbrewery with all manner of draft beers on tap. Jane Barleycorn’s Market and Bar has your fill of Irish whiskeys, car-bombs, and stouts; you can also wet your whistle at Brother’s Bar-B-Que or have a draft Guinness at Bluegrass Pizza and Pub on St. Patty's Day.

Be Merry

On Saturday, March 14th, you can celebrate the Emerald Isle all day long, beginning with the Heart of Danville’s Shop Second Saturday downtown event. Stroll downtown, where you can taste Irish-themed cuisine at our locally owned eateries and stock up on all the green gear you’ll need for the holiday at our downtown shops. You can also take part in that day's Shamrockin’ Happy Hour from 3 to 6 p.m., which will include special drink discounts at Pizza Pub, Captain Franks, Jane Barleycorn’s, Beer Engine, and Cue on Main.

In a night of good old-fashioned Irish revelry, you’ll see the American Hoedowners (pictured right) and the Kentuckians Barbershop Chorus, who will perform some Irish standards.  Get more info here
