Grogg's is an Irish Pub at the corner of Willow and Nees Ave. that puts on a big patio party every year for St. Patrick's. (Both Saturday and Sunday) It's a great little local pub that is very popular. This year they will have a band or DJ or both in the parking lot. This place gets packed by the afternoon so I have scheduled our meetup at 10:30 (they usually open at 11:00 but will open an hour earlier for St. Pat's). If you want to show up a little later, feel free but be warned you may have to wait for a table when the after church crowd gets there and may miss a few of us after the Guinness and Jameson kick in.
Specials on the menu will be Corned Beef & Cabbage and Bangers & Mash for sure but they may add some things later. I'm sure they will have some drink specials as well. Menu is a lunch/dinner menu but good food at a reasonable price: http://www.groggsclovis.com/menu/
I am not making reservations, they probably don't take them on Saint Patrick's Day anyway. We will sit at the biggest table they have available and use multiple tables as needed. This place is too small to expect them to try and make us a huge banquet table that takes the entire dining room so we will wing it as we did at Mardi Gras. As usual, I am opting for a low stress & casual affair but please update your RSVP's if your plans change so you aren't counted as a "No Show". There is no limit set on the number of attendees so as many people as the place can handle will be our only limitations.
Several of our regular members will be in New Orleans for this event so won't be with us. The Craft Beer Taster's group is coming in around 11:00 so we should see a few familiar faces with that group as well.
Some of us will probably hang out for a while so we will need to vacate our inside tables after we eat so others can enjoy the food too. A LAWN CHAIR would be a good idea for the patio entertainment. They probably won't have any chairs in the parking lot party.
