Give your shamrock a kiss for helping Cupertino Patch find these St. Paddy’s Day picks for an afternoon or evening celebration:
It’s the biggest night of the year for the 30-year-old community icon. And Tommy Cauge Jr. and his staff know how to throw a party here. There’s a full lineup of Irish eats, plus a few vegetarian menu items for those who just need something different. Here’s a sampling of the St. Patrick’s Day menu:
- Corned beef and cabbage
- Sausage rolls
- Irish stew—homemade delicious!
- Fish 'n' chips
- Veggie curry—who cares if it’s not Irish?
- Kobe burger
- Plus, all the standard appetizers.
An Irish band, The Rogues, plays 5:30-9:30 p.m., and a DJ takes over for the rest of the night.
A special offer of $25 will get you soup or salad, entrée, dessert and a beverage (beer or wine included).
If you believe Josh the bartender, the owner may show up in a green thong. We’ll opt for the corned beef and cabbage, which starts at 4:30 p.m. Shots of Irish whiskey and glasses of Guinness are offered at special prices, as are the regular happy hour prices, from 4-7 p.m.
There’s no live band, but Josh assures us the “live jukebox and a plethora of locals who get loud,” will be entertainment enough.
Oh, and green beer all day.
There’s no Irish spirit scheduled, but there’s plenty of Irish beer or whiskey. BJ’s Jeremiah Red is a beer done in the Irish style, so that counts for something.
