St. Patrick's Day is just around the corner! Although I am not Irish I always make it a tradition to drink a pint of Guiness on St. Patrick's Day. Guiness is my favorite beer and I love the festive traditions associated with St. Patrick's Day.
And speaking of Irish festivities, the Garlick Mustard Pickers will be performing several times this month. You don't know what you're missing if you haven't seen this incredible band. The following is a re-print of an e-mail announcement I received. There are a number of people who receive these e-mails, so I apologize in advance if this is "old news" to you and you have already received this info.
Here's our gig lineup for March: Two fundraiser gigs, and a restaurant gig
Sunday March 11
Grant Park golf course Clubhouse (at the east end of Hawthorne Ave, South Milwaukee)
The Pullin' O the Green which is the Friends of Grant Park's annual fundraiser party
Two seatings: 4:30 PM, 6:30 PM
Tickets are $12 for adults, kids are $5
The menu is one of the following:
Corned beef and cabbage, or,

Friday March 16
The Celtic Night for Literacy which is the annual fundraiser for the Racine Literacy Council

Doors open at 5:30. We're playing slow music during dinner (6pm), then shift to lively music at 7pm.

Saturday March 17 (Saint Patrick's Day!)
We're doing dining room music for:
Mulligan's Irish Pub
8933 S 27th St, Franklin (just south of Drexel on the west side of 27th Street)
2pm to 5 pm
This is a traditional acoustic performance, so there is no sound system to get in the way. Should be a lot of fun.
The food is good, too.
We hope to see you at one (or more?) of these gigs, and we wish you a Happy St. Pat's Day!
Thanks for supporting our band!
