"WINSTON-SALEM, NC – As a thank you to its customers and its community, Finnigan’s Wake Irish Pub and Kitchen will combine two traditional celebrations into one, free event on March 17th, 2016.
In years past, festival goers pay for a $30 ticket to enjoy food, drink specials, and more than 12 hours of live entertainment. This year there will be no entry fee and many amenities will be the same.
“We are so grateful to Winston-Salem and our customers – many of whom come visit us from across the U.S. – for making the pub such a success for a decade,” says proprietor Philip “Opie” Kirby. “I feel blessed to be able to follow my dream, and this year for St. Patrick’s Day, we really wanted to celebrate big.”
Festivities will start at 7:00 a.m. with an all-you-can-eat Irish breakfast buffet for only $10.00. Traditional menu favorites, such as fish ‘n chips and Guinness Stew, will be available at regular menu price beginning at 11:00 a.m.
Music will be acoustic with breakfast and lunch, and beginning at 3:00 p.m. the pub will open its 4,000 square foot tent in the parking area adjacent to Finningan’s Wake. More live music, Irish dancers, the Jamestown Pipe and Drum Corp, the Wake and more will begin at 4:00 p.m. and last until midnight, with a DJ spinning until 2:00 a.m.
Kirby says, “We have waited 10 years for this event to engage our customers and community in what we hope will be a Winston-Salem tradition for many more years to come.”"
