A warm howdy all the way from San Antonio, Texas to ya’ll in Portland! I’m here on business and flying home to Portland just in time for St. Practice Day at Mock Crest!
I honestly had to do a bit o’ investigating on this one. Actually, I emailed Rainer, one of the owners for the details. I’d never heard of St. Practice Day. Have you?
St. Practice day is practice for St. Patrick’s Day, and since we’re almost half way to that day in March 2013, Mock Crest is bringing in “The Chancers” who are an Irish band. Not only that, but there will also be St. Paddy’s day fare! Just one more reason to add to my list why Mock Crest Tavern is the best.
Here’s a sample of what’s available:
Shot o’ Jameson with any beer $5
Irish Car Bombs $6.75
Irish Coffee $5
Laurie’s Corned Beef Specials
The Chancers members are: Sean Connolly, Felim Egan, Paddy Schutte and Tim Cornell. Their music includes traditional Irish ballads, hackneyed paddy-whack tunes and polkas. They attribute their sounds and inspiration to Benny O’Conner of the esteemed Galway Ceili band ‘Shaskeen’, Neil Diamond, Shane McGowan and Morrissey.
Catch their tunes on Reverbnation.
Mark your calendars for Thursday, September 20th at 8:30 p.m. You won’t want to miss the fun!
Feel free to return to the blog after your visit and share with everyone what the highlight of your night was. I look forward to hearing your comments.
