Breckenridge celebrates St. Patrick’s Day, just a wee bit this March 17, 2011! Whether you are born and raised in Ireland or have a touch of Irish in you, celebrating St. Patrick’s day in the high country will have you saying “Tabhair pog dom taim Eireannach” (Kiss me! I’m Irish) before the end of the evening!
Start your day off at Burke and Riley’s which will open at 7am with a giant Irish buffet breakfast. Mark Burke, one of the owners, says he will be serving up a traditional Irish breakfast, the most important meal of your day! Later in the day, enjoy the sounds of the old country with bagpipers from Denver’s Emerald Society. Burke and Riley’s will also have live Irish music, a DJ and Celtic dancers throughout the afternoon and evening. A small cover charge will get your first “beor ghlas” (green beer) and a collector’s Burke and Riley’s t-shirt. Of course there will be Guinness on tap as well.
