It is WELL KNOWN around our part of town, that my husband Eric throws down on St. Patrick’s Day. Every year, our home turns into “Cire’s Pub” (Eric spelled backwards, yes we got Oprah on that lol). A St. Patrick’s Day TRADITION. No matter what day of the week. Eric will start cooking by 9 am, drink a Guinness by 9:01 and keep it going all day long. On the Pub Tele Boondock Saints & Snatch. Irish Folk songs are heard in the background. And everyone who knows about it, knows this is not an invite only, but more like, if you know us, know him, you are welcome to stop by and have a BEER & get Good Eats on this fine American Embraced Holiday!
For EVERYONE is IRISH! On St. Patrick’s Day!
The back story of Cire’s Pub St. Patrick’s Day Open House.
Eric is Irish on his bio-dads side and Filipino on his moms side. And because he didn’t grow up knowing his “Ryan” Family~ He does an Ode to his Irish Ancestors on this day.
Decorations: I don’t over decorate or lady up the place. I simply shop our house and pull all our “Green Items” together. I have an old Irish Folktales book that always comes out. A Happy St. Patrick’s Day store bought banner. Everyone wears GREEN. Overall, it’s my husbands PUB and I rather enjoy the rustic, keep it simple, vibe.
Beef Stew~ with potato, carrots, leeks, Shepards Pie, & Rolls. Pretzels, Sea Salted Chips, Nuts. Guinness, Irish Whiskey, maybe an Irish Sangria this year, Specialty Rootbeer for our kiddo’s, Irish Coffee, and Water. We do have dessert on occassion, but it’s limited. Most people don’t eat a lot of sweets when drinking!
A family of Irish birth will argue and fight, but let a shout come from without, and see them all unite. ~ Cheers! R*
