15000 Se Mill Plain Blvd, Vancouver, WA
First Wednesday Night of every month Witches of Irishtown Meetup at Irishtown is no more, since new owners did not renew Irishtown's lease and our beloved pub had to close.
Irish NIGHT, however, has moved to a new venue, just down the road in Vancouver. Cascade Bar and Grill is now hosting Irish Night, with A Fine Mess, or New Shilling, plus other musicians opening for them. Witches of Irishtown will move our Meetup to Irish Night at Cascade B & G. Cascade is nice, set up sort of like Irishtown, with the music on one side, and pool tables in another room. I will not be changing the name of this Meetup, since Irishtown has been so good to us.
Like Irishtown, Cascade B & G is conveniently located just off I-205, and has a lot of free parking. Cascade is about 1 mile further east on Mill Plain, on the same side of the street as Irishtown. The food at Cascade is great.
We have been consoling ourselves by rightfully understanding that the magick -- and magick there was -- at Irishtown was not because of the building, but because of the music and the people. The same music and the same people will be at Cascade. The magick will follow.
At Irishtown's last night bash, from the stage, Peter (the owner) thanked "the Witches" for helping Irishtown survive as long as it did.
So, I hope you will join us at Cascade B & G to support the continuation of Irish Night, and to create and sustain Pagan community.
More information to come.
