Celebrate St Patrick's IRISH STYLE Friday@Molly Darcy's w'great band fr. IRELAND

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

This is the very beginning of the St. Patrick's weekend festivities. We intend to set the party theme to celebrate Real Irish Style. We are also getting an authentic top tier high energy band from the motherland of Ireland performing at an authentic Irish pub, Molly Darcy's. It is owned by a native from Ireland, Tommy Snee.  Molly is downtown at the corner of Market and East Bay Streets, in an area of the city where the Irish party spirit is at it's finest.  It doesn't get much better than this.

The McLean Avenue band have what has been often called a “super band sound.” This “sound” has its very own distinctive mix between old Irish Celtic folklore and the rock pop Celtic music of today.

The McLean Avenue Band below:

The second video clip in the link below best summarizes the band's music

The McLean Avenue Band starts at 9 pm. There will be dueling pianos between 5 - 8 pm. We will have a private area in the dining room to the right of the front door, so please go there to "Meet and Greet". So that we can be part of the the entire atmosphere of this restaurant and bar, I have asked that this private area for us to not be curtained off. Come any time, as live music is scheduled from 5 pm until closing. Please make sure that the hostess at the front door gives you a wrist band, so that we can identify ourselves to each other and to the venue management. This can only help us in getting that extra courtesy and favors at future events.

    Any preferences for repeatable events on some weekends at Molly's. The owners appear eager to have us with dance bands, drink specials & wrist bands. There are also open & covered outdoor areas & a parking lot in the back. Everyone seems to want to dance there. Perhaps we could theme it a "first timers" event where everyone new wearing a wrist band gets one drink or meal for half price. It's also in heart of downtown within view of the open air market...very safe.

    I feel the same way regarding parking, but didn't realize they had a lot at back of bldg. There's always next time!

    I have no problem paying for parking. It was more of a safety issue. Next time I'll try to get there while it's still light outside.

    I like what some of you said about downtown parking. Nothing is a free ride and it costs a little to live good. If it takes $7 to have fun, so be it.

    I loved being downtown and was prepared to pay for parking. There where two lots very close by with parking attendants. I paid 7 dollars and it was worth it to enjoy such a great evening of music.

    Same problem all over the world...downtown great, but parking sucks. We try to mix it with suburbia vs inner city sin. A little bit of both always makes the other one better whenever.

    Just for the record Ann Marie, the group description is not about singles and not about "picking up". "Welcoming the wedded, the single, the seeker, the dalliance-prone, the silly/serious or just the curious." In our description, the words "wedded" come first. We're all about getting out and just meeting other people...no other intent. During these socials, I have not personally felt that anyone is working hard to meet their soul mate, although of-course exceptions always exist, as with everything. I'm thus assuming that your husband just wants to get out and make casual friends; otherwise he would more likely join other groups geared towards "picking up"
