If you want to feel good about spending your money locally, and you want to eat delicious Irish food, and hear some live Irish music and celebrate St. Patrick’s day the way the good lord intended, then I have the place for you.
McGuinness Irish Pub in downtown Appleton has every option you need to celebrate safely and with gusto. They’re hosting a tent party on Saturday March 13 with live music and plenty of their Irish fare. On Sunday, they’re offering two-for-one Reuben Sandwiches in honor of National Reuben Day and, on the big day, McGuinness will open at 8 a.m. for a full Irish breakfast and corned beef and cabbage dinners all day.
They’ve created a drive-thru for all of these events, so if you don’t feel comfortable sticking around, you can pick up your authentic Irish cuisine, and swing on home to enjoy it.
They have posted this message on their website:
“We at McGuinness place the health and safety of our customers and staff as top priority. With that in mind, we promise to do our best to ensure proper social distancing of our dining tables and will keep everything properly clean and sanitized. As we do our best to keep our Pub safe, we also ask that if you do not yet feel comfortable in crowded spaces, please use our Drive-Thru Lane and we look forward to celebrating in person soon.”
The thing about this particular St. Patrick’s Day is that it comes after an historically challenging year for those in the restaurant/bar industry. So, it feels really good to be able to support one of our own on what can be a make-it-or-break it weekend for an Irish pub.
We enjoyed takeout from McGuinness earlier this year and I really liked my Shepherd’s Pie. I heard great reviews from the people in my house about their famous reuben sandwiches.
We intend to take advantage of the drive thru lane and enjoy another round of some good Irish fare, and it will be extra fun to listen to some live Irish music while we pick up our order.
Happy St. Patrick’s Day weekend! Happy National Reuben Sandwich Day!
