10 Salem Locations To 'Get Your Irish On'
Here are 10 food and music spots for St. Patricks Day.
"May good luck be with you wherever you go, and your blessings outnumber the shamrocks that grow."
As you count your blessings and look for a place to eat (and maybe dance a step or two), here are a few Salem spots to consider as you make St. Patty's Day plans:
- Major Magleashe's: The Major has been serving a boiled dinner on the day of Irish since 1974. Drop into Salem's longest serving Irish Pub for a green beer and a bit of cheer. If the corned beef isn't your preference, the burgers and steak tips will tickle your taste buds without wiping out your wallet.
- O'Neill's: A full-boiled dinner, shepard's pie and Guinness beef stew top a full Irish menu. Live music begins at 3 p.m. and will continue until 8 p.m. Tell Ronnie, BaldBil sent you.
- Rockafellas: Enjoy a special menu with homemade Irish bread, two separate bands at 4 p.m. and 9 p.m. and a sing-a-long contest. What more could you ask for?
- Dodge Street: Dodge Street opens at 3 p.m., offering a corned beef Reuben sandwich all day. Live music with The Fisher Cats featuring Dave Fisher begins at 8 p.m. I'll be there at 4 p.m. for my sandwich.
- Green Land: A traditional boiled dinner will be offered with Guinness Foreign Extra and Kentucky Bourbon Barrel Ale (a favorite of mine) on tap. A special Eire's Misty Morn' martini will also be offered.
- Tavern in the Square: Enjoy a boiled dinner, Guinness Beef Stew and promotional giveaways throughout the day.
- Finz: Expect an Irish menu to pick from and live music from 7 p.m. to midnight featuring Conor Shanahan. No cover is required to listen to this most Irish of musicians.
- Victoria Station: Munch on Irish offerings and listen to the sounds of DJ Nick Consone from 8:30 p.m. to closing. There will be a Jameson promotion with plenty of schwag to be had. KP and her crew await your arrival.
- Witches Brew: Join Mike and crew during the day and John and the night crew later on for corned beef and cabbage with the beaver and the bear.
- Pig's Eye: If a close-knit group is your preference, there isn't a more intimate spot to get your Irish on. Listen to great music as you eat your corned beef or opt for the steak tips and lobster tail special.
